Healthy Sleep Solutions (HSS) is committed to helping people afflicted with sleep apnea live longer, healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives. On the recommendations of independent sleep physicians and under the supervision of their referring doctors, HSS has tested and treated over 100,000 patients and this is growing.
The Healthy Sleep Solutions Patient Pathway is a complete solution for the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Looking after OSA patients is multidisciplinary and may include managing: weight loss, hypertension, type 2 diabetes or depression.
HSS works with an expert team of sleep physicians, other specialists, sleep technicians and reputable treatment providers to deliver positive patient outcomes.
We have an Australia-wide team of sleep services coordinators who liaise with general practitioners and specialists about our service, sleep apnea and sleep studies.
HSS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Air Liquide, a French multinational organisation.The treatment of OSA [obstructive sleep apnea] cannot be limited to any single strategy but requires a multidisciplinary approach, effective provider-patient communications and long-term follow-up to achieve an effective and long-lasting therapeutic success.1
One in four Australian adults are at risk of having sleep apnea2 yet 80% remain undiagnosed.3 Sleep apnea severity increases with weight gain.4 As the population gains weight, more people will be at risk.The average patient at HSS based on 61,258 tested patients:5
|Feels regularly tired||75%||81%|
|Average sleep apnea severity||Severe (AHI 30)||Moderate (AHI 23)|
