Does anyone know if there are any alarms that can be used to sound if an adult stops breathing to alert their partner? The only ones I can find are for SIDS for babies.

  • I hope so!
    I personally don’t really know but I hope you find something.
    Can you ask the GP?


  • Not sure about alarms but I use a CPAP machine and feel so much better for it


  • Definitely see your GP and go to a sleep clinic.
    My husband has really bad sleep apnea and now wears a cpap machine for nights and life is so much better for him.


  • Good question! I’ve never heard of them, but there might be some associated with CPAP machines.


  • Sleep clinics are worth looking into, again in consultation with a GP.


  • Definitely need management through go or a specialist who may be able to assist you more


  • Sleep apnoea should be managed by a GP with referrals to relevant professionals.


  • Definitely book a Sleep Test. You can die from sleep apnoea if not treated. I know quite a few people on CPAP machines which pump air into your lungs. This condition can start at any age and any weight.


  • A friend of ours had a huge face mask contraption for his sleep apnoea. It was so uncomfortable to wear, he stopped


  • Go to the drs and get a referral to a clinic to have a sleep test at a hospital and they will test and see what needs to be done, as this is the best way.


  • My husband is a bad snorer and I would love to find something to help him


  • Yes, there are certainly apnea monitors for adults on the market !
