Obstructive sleep apnoea in adults is defined as a ten-second breathing pause, occurring more than five times per hour of sleep. It is due to obstructed upper airway. Because of the bodies' protective mechanism, which senses the resultant lack of oxygen, the sufferer awakens and takes a deep breath before once again falling asleep. This sequence of interrupted breathing and sleep disturbance, can develop into a cyclical pattern.


Dangers of Sleep Apnea
  • Disrupt the sleep of family members
  • Affect daytime alertness and functioning, and sleepiness-related vehicle accidents
  • Increase the risks of hypertension, heart disease and stroke because of oxygen deficiency during sleep
  • Increase the risks of sudden death from an irregular heartbeat

Symptoms

  • Stop breathing temporarily and repeatedly during sleep, each episode lasting from 10 seconds to few minutes
  • Gasping for air during sleep / Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
  • Abrupt awakenings accompanied by gasping or choking
  • Morning headache
  • Poor judgment and loss of concentration
  • Forgetfulness
  • Irritability
  • Sexual dysfunction

Self Assessment Questionnaire
Nasopharyngeal Cancer (NPC) is one of most common cancers in Hong Kong. There are about 900 new cases per year in Hong Kong. The incidence rate is 3 times higher for men, and the peak incidence age is around 50 to 60. In addition, the prevalence of NPC is relatively high in Hong Kong and Southern China.

The causes of Nasopharyngeal Cancer are unclear. Suspected risk factors include:
  • Heredity: First degree relatives (including parents, siblings, and children) of a Nasopharyngeal Cancer patient have a higher risk of suffering from the same cancer than others
  • Diet: Regular consumption of processed food might have a higher risk of suffering from Nasopharyngeal Cancer
  • Lifestyle: Smokers might have a higher risk of developing Nasopharyngeal Cancer
  • EB Virus: EB Virus (Epstein-Barr Virus) infection may result in symptoms similar to that of common cold, which might not be observed easily. Blood serum of most Nasopharyngeal Cancer patients contains one or more antibodies directed against EB Virus. If this is the case, further screening and examination should be undergone.


In the early stage of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, there are no obvious symptoms. Nasopharyngeal Cancer Screening Program. People with higher risks or the above symptoms should visit their doctor and have checkups regularly or as soon as possible, because early diagnosis can increase the cure rate.
Service included:

  • Specialist Consultation (Otorhinolaryngology)
  • Nasal Endoscopy
  • EBV antibody blood test
