Don’t Suffer Through the Sleeping Giant of Sleep Apnoea

Sleep Clinic Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo

The groan of the radiator, a drip-drip of the tap downstairs, mumbles and bangs from the washing machine, and of course the throaty roar coming from your partner next to you as they snore the night away.

All these things can keep us up into the wee hours of the morning but not all of them have to remain a problem. Yes, the living room sofa has been a solution in the past, the bad back worth the extra few hours without the incessant croak and grumble in your ear, but your back is getting worse and so is the snoring.

Sleep apnoea is the biggest cause of a bad night’s sleep for people across the country, and is a problem which affects partners of the sufferer as much as themselves. It is caused when not enough air can reach the lungs due to an obstruction in the throat. In most cases this leads to snoring but in more severe cases it can lead to being woken up many times during the night due to shortness of breath or falling asleep during the middle of the day.

Thousands of people in Ireland suffer from the condition and it is important to see a specialist to see how you can avoid it getting worse how to clean up your sleeping patterns to avoid any other issues.

At the 3fivetwo Group we understand the importance of a good night’s sleep; from increasing mood, energy and brain power, to aiding digestion and weight–loss, sleep is key to so many aspects of our life and making sure our body functions efficiently. Which is why we are proud to offer a range of treatments for a number of different sleep related issues at our Sleep Clinic at Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo:

• A special night mouth-guard which gently pushes the jaw forward to avoid throat obstruction.
• CPAP Device – A mask which enables the flow of air through the lungs and respiratory tract to avoid obstruction.
• Weight and Lifestyle Management is available with one of our specialists who will guide you through lifestyle and diet changes to aid better sleeping patterns.
• Surgery is an option, but is only needed for the most serious of cases.

Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo donates a further €5,000 to local organisations

 

Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo Charity Funds Local Initiatives

Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo has submitted money from their charity fund to a number of local charities and initiatives to support projects across the region.

 

A total of €5,000 has been donated, which was raised from events such as The Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo Charity Ball last year. The beneficiaries are seven different organisations who are important to the community, which include; Sooey National School Band,

Deaf Hear – Hawks Well Theatre, Sligo Tidy Towns, Sligo Volunteering Capital, Ballygawley Community Park, Special Olympics Connaught, Nightriders – Special Olympics Equestrian Club.

 

The money will go towards helping several projects like Sligo Tidy Towns in supplying street furniture and sculptures to improve the aesthetic of Sligo for locals and visitors alike. Local sports teams will benefit as new dug-outs will be erected at the sports pitch in Ballygawley, whilst horse riders from Special Olympics Connaught will receive new head gear for improved safety.

 

Special Olympics Connaught provides year round sports training to 1300 adults and children with intellectual disabilities across Ireland, including Sligo, and is part of Special Olympics Ireland. Whilst Sligo Tidy Towns plays a big part in sport in the area as unpaid volunteers help keep pitches and facilities clean and the town was names European Town of Sport in 2014.

 

Local art institutions and students will also benefit as a new theatre loop system will be installed for the hard of hearing and The Sooey School band will purchase new music stand banners.

Mr. Mark Towey, CEO of Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo, says the fund has been a huge success since it was established last year and hopes it continues in the same vein, “We are so proud to be able to help the local community and be part of projects that do so much good.”

 

“We aim to try help many different types of organisations and it has certainly helped cement Kingsbridge Private Hospital’s place in the region and we hope to be able to continue this work for many years to come in Sligo.”

 

These donations were the last of the €15,082 that was raised at last year’s Charity Ball and plans are currently in place to organise more fundraising events for the 2018 fund.

 

We are keen to encourage others in the local area to apply for funding and we also welcome those who can help us with additional fundraising activities.

Kingsbridge Private Hosptial Sligo donates €5,500 to local organisations

community-fundKingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo has released the first tranche of monies from their new Community Fund to help local initiatives and charities in the region.

A total of €5,500 was donated by the committee to five local organisations including Friends of Sligo University Hospital, Hawks Well Theatre, Strand Celtic FC, North West Hospice and Sligo Leitrim District Club.

Chairperson of the Kingsbridge Sligo Community Fund Committee and CEO of Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo, Mark Towey said it was a great honour to play a part in helping new projects get off the ground and hopefully make a positive change to the local community

“We have been impressed and enlightened after reading through some of the applications. There are already some amazing activities going on in our community but to assist in enhancing them or play our part in helping to initiate a new project, is very worthwhile,” said Mark.

The money released will go towards several new projects including supplying new foldaway guest beds enabling family members to stay overnight in the North West Hospice; Nurturing children’s creative exploration at the Hawks Well Theatre via the development of new programmes and community workshops; Sponsorship of the Knocknarea 8 Mile Loop event to help create more funds for the Strand Celtic Football Club; Much needed ground development work at Sligo Leitrim DSL allowing them to host junior football matches for local schools and colleges and finally contribute to the purchase of two new trolley beds for emergency patients on behalf of Friends of Sligo University Hospital for the acute assessment unit.

“Whilst we are keen to encourage others to apply for funding which was raised as a result of our inaugural Shamrock Ball earlier this year, we also welcome those who can help us with additional fundraising activities, to keep our Community Fund topped up,” concluded Mark.
