Sleep Apnoea Got Your Tongue? 

If you notice that you wake up with blood in your mouth or cuts on your tongue, you may have been chewing your tongue during your sleep. Often patients who are mouth breathers are highly susceptible to Sleep Apnoea and often wake up regularly throughout the night. These spontaneous arousals often result in movement of the mouth, sometimes clenching of the jaw or grinding of the teeth, So before you patch up your tongue and tape down your mouth, come into Sleep Centres of Australia and get tested using a Home Sleep Study device. For more information, contact our Sleep Respiratory Therapists on 9252 6144.
