Did you know that we offer a range of Sleep Apnoea Services?
We can assist you on your sleep apnoea journey from pre-diagnosis to long term management.
With our partner National Sleep Diagnostics we are able to facilitate 'at home sleep tests' which then get reviewed by their in house Sleep Specialists. If the criteria are met and referral form completed this service is largely covered by Medicare with a small gap fee. Once we receive your results from National Sleep Diagnostics we will contact you and your doctor to organise the next step of the process.
With a diagnosis of sleep apnoea requiring treatment, the next step is to trial a CPAP or APAP machine and mask. We have an extensive range of ResMed machines and masks that are available to hire during this process and with weekly appointments we ensure that you find the most comfortable and effective mask and machine combo before you buy them. We offer this service to patients who access our at home sleep tests, patients who have received scripts from their own sleep specialist and also public hospital patients needing to trial a device. Contact us for more specific information relating to your situation.
We keep a large range of ResMed and BMC masks and spare parts in stock with a small number of machines in stock and available for order.
If your mask or machine are not performing as they once were we offer machine troubleshooting appointments and mask fit and check appointments to assess whether they are still fit for purpose or if they need servicing or replacement.
We also offer hire of CPAP and APAP machines while your machine is off getting serviced via a ResMed authorised servicing company which we can organise for you.
Looking at a brand new mask that is different to your last one? We also facilitate hiring of masks to allow you to try before you buy a brand new one.
Our Sleep Apnoea Consultants are available Monday to Friday and every second Saturday. Please note that At home sleep tests are only available on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons via appointment.
Contact our team via phone, email or online booking for more information, any queries or to book into one of our services. We look forward to assisting you.
