The Anterior Palatoplasty (2004) is another surgery invented by Dr Pang for patients with snoring and sleep apnoea. The results have been very impressive and successful.

The Ultimate Guide To Treating Sleep Apnea In Singapore (2019)

A recent report published in the Straits Times showed that 1 in 3 Singaporeans have snoring problems and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

Snoring and sleep apnea has always been my area of interest, so I have decided to write this comprehensive guide to help patients looking for information online.

This 2200-word post covers many questions that patients have asked me over the years, including:

  • Treating obstructive sleep apnea in Singapore
  • What a sleep clinic in Singapore does
  • How to find the best CPAP machine for yourself in Singapore

This sounds like your son might have allergic rhinitis and likely swollen sinus turbinates and adenoids. He is snoring because of his blocked nasal passages and narrow airway. He is likely a mouth breather that would aggravate the situation and narrow the airway further. This ...

Nose bleeds are not a normal occurrence. It should be taken seriously and would be prudent to consult an ENT specialist as soon as possible. Nose bleeds may be a sign of a tumour or growth (although not the commonest cause), this needs to be excluded. The ENT specialist would do ...

Thanks for the D2D. Snoring is due to the excessive soft tissues in the airway, including swollen sinus turbinates, deviated nose septum, swollen adenoids, a thick long floppy palate or uvula, thick side walls of the mouth, and/or a big bulky tongue. A blocked nose will cause t...
6 Nov 2018
Thanks for the D2D. Yes. Snoring is due to an anatomical floppiness of the soft tissue and vibration in the upper airway. Studies have shown that most snoring originates from the vibration of the soft palate, other areas include the side walls of the mouth, the tongue base and / o...

Thanks for the D2D. The reason why you might “automatically” open your mouth at night is because your nose is blocked, hence it’s a survival instinct to open your mouth to breathe. Please do not use the Chin Strap until you have seen a sleep specialist or nose...

Hello, Thanks for the D2D. This is very discerning of you. Yes. There are a lot of scientific evidence that CPAP is not useful in a real life setting. CPAP is only effective as long as you keep the mask on your face. There are many issues and problems with CPAP, like complian...

Hello, Thanks for the D2D. Absolutely. You are a fairly young gentleman to have high blood pressure (hypertension). This could be also be due to a strong family history of hypertension, a high salt diet and certainly aggravated by Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Scientific studies ha...
6 Nov 2018
Hello, Thanks for the D2D. Yes. It is likely that he might have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. He seems like he has stoppages in breathing at night and he might have nose congestion which explains his mouth opening during sleep. Because of the stoppages in breathing at night, his b...

It would be prudent to continue monitoring your thyroid modules. Multi modular thyroid goitre is fairly common in females. As surgeons, we only consider surgery if there are any compressive symptoms like swallowing or breathing difficulties, any voice change. Or i...

This would depend on how deep the neck cyst is located. There are skin cyst like sebaceous cyst that are superficial and can be treated very easily. There are deeper neck cyst that may require surgery. These neck cysts are usually due to congenital developmental brachial cleft...

The white “stuff” is actually not a lump but a food particle or food residue stuck within the tonsils deep crypts. These food residues may solidify and form “stones”, also known as tonsil stones or tonsilloliths.
