Sweet dreams surgery

Posted on: Mon 19 Oct 2020

Obstructive sleep apnoea occurs when the airway in the throat collapses during sleep.

People living with this condition usually snore and stop breathing at night.

Traditional sleep apnoea treatments include the use of masks or similar devices, but now a surgery trial has emerged as a new alternative for tackling the condition.

Doug McEvoy, Emeritus Professor from the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University, joins Breakfast to discuss his innovative surgery which would help patients who cannot adapt to traditional solutions.
