Everything you need for a great nights sleep
Could you be suffering from Sleep Apnoea?
The most common sleep condition is Sleep Apnoea which occurs when the walls of the throat shut during sleep and breathing stops for a few seconds up to a minute. The body is roused into breathing again once the brain senses the lack of oxygen, slightly opening the upper airway, which results in snorts and gasps.

SLEEP DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE
Alice NightOne Diagnostic Device
Take control of your sleep problems and organise your sleep test with Thornlands Pharmacy. The test costs just $100 and involves using an Alice NightOne Diagnostic Device. This device is conveniently small and you won’t feel tethered to your bed.
It is easy to set up and will record your overnight sleep in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Thornlands Pharmacy will then download the results from your sleep test and forward the information to a sleep doctor for a diagnosis. Your nominated GP will be provided with the result of the test in 7-10 days and will be able to advise you on the appropriate treatments.
Thornlands Pharmacy also hires out CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines for a month. If you find the CPAP machine beneficial, we also sell the machines as well as humidifiers, masks, and spare parts.
