Aer Healthcare Our Mission:
“Breathe better, sleep better, live better”
Christopher Kelly- founder of Aer Healthcare
What is Obstructive sleep apnoea?
OSA and OSAS are both medical conditions that affect peoples sleep, and OSAS carries over to the day time by making people sleepy during the day. The are many parts to OSA and these parts are best discovered by functional sleep tests.
The prevalence of each sleep disorder was calculated in the Australian population aged 20 years and over. These prevalence rates do not overlap, that is they have been adjusted to avoid counting people with multiple disorders, by only counting the primary sleep condition.
In 2010 there were an estimated 1.5 million Australians (8.9% of the population) with these sleep disorders, comprising approximately:
• 775,000 people with OSA (4.7%);
• 492,000 people with primary insomnia (3%); and
• 199,000 people with RLS (1.2%).
Costs may be underestimated given the prevalence of people experiencing symptoms of insomnia,
RLS or OSA is substantially higher than the proportion of people who are diagnosed with these conditions, and given the exclusion of other sleep conditions.

What is sleep disordered breathing?
SDB is everything else that can cause you to not breathe well at night. Aer Healthcare is part of the “dental sleep medicine” initiative. DSM brings another level of diagnosis and therapy options to people suffering from SDB even if they have been told that they do not have OSA but they still feel tired during the day
