1 In 3 Singaporeans Have Sleep Apnea; This ENT Specialist Explains The Condition

One in three Singaporeans suffers from moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), and 90% of them don't know they have it. 

Loud, deafening snores that give your spouse sleepless nights is actually a sign that you may have sleep apnea! This disorder causes you to stop breathing repeatedly in your sleep because of a complete or partial block in your airway.

DoctorxDentist invited Dr Lynne Lim, an ENT specialist with more than 20 years of experience under her belt to host a DoctorxDentist Session on sleep apnea. She answers many reader questions on sleep apnea.

Most of the lumps I have removed from tonsils have returned on excision biopsy as fibrous or chronically inflamed tonsillar tissue. Occasionally, it turns out to be viral warts. These are not dangerous lumps. However, as your tonsil lump has been growing in size, and is also on...

The trauma from the basketball incident may have caused a missed fracture that healed, but with the nose bone in a deviated or depressed position. The external deviation though slight, may be associated with an internal nose bone deviation that is more severe. Thus, breathing from the right nose c...

Most sores and cuts are due to seemingly innocuous rubbing and picking of the nose, especially when we have nasal allergies, frequent colds or blocked noses. If one also uses a nasal spray but has been pointing the spray nozzle in a non-optimal direction, that may also increase th...

Thanks for the D2D. Here are some cost estimates for sleep apnea treatment in Singapore: The initial cost would be the consultation ( from $150 ) and possibly a flexible nasoendoscopy cost ( from $250 ) to determine the levels of obstruction and medical issues that need to be man...

thanks for the D2D. Please refer to my reply on “ How to treat sleep apnea without CPAP or surgery? ” for conservative first line measures to treat sleep apnea. Additionally, surgical measures may be needed when these conservative modalities do not suffice, or if the...
