Our Specialists
What is obstructive sleep apnoea(OSA)?

OSA is a condition in which a person stops breathing repeatedly throughout the night. Breathing stops because the airway collapses and prevents air from getting into the lungs. Sleep patterns are disrupted, resulting in excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue.

What are the symptoms of OSA?

Night time:

  • Loud persistent snoring.
  • Pauses in breathing.
  • Choking or gasping for air during sleep.
  • Restless sleep.
  • Frequent visits to the bathroom

Day time:

  • Early morning headache.
  • Excessive day time fatigue.
  • Poor concentration.
  • Irritability.
  • Sleepiness during routine activities.
What are common causes of nasal obstruction?
Common causes of nasal obstruction include a deviated nasal septum, nasal turbinate enlargement and nasal polyps (benign growths).
What causes sinusitis and how is it treated?
Infection of the sinus cavities often occurs due to inflammation and obstruction of the sinus drainage pathways. Typical symptoms of a sinus infection include facial pain and pressure, nasal obstruction, yellow or green nasal drainage, fatigue and fever. Treatment of a sinus infection may include nasal decongestants and antibiotics. People with chronic sinus drainage may benefit from endoscopic sinus surgery.
At what point would my child benefit from a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy?

Surgical removal of the tonsils and adenoids in children is performed for three primary reasons: recurrent tonsil/adenoid infections, snoring with associated sleep apnea, and hearing loss due to serous otitis media.

What causes my hoarseness of voice ?

Hoarseness is due to irritation of the larynx and is commonly caused by upper respiratory infections, reflux of stomach acid and/or postnasal drip.

  • In children due to repeated upper respiratory infections.
  • Misuse of Voice (Mostly in singers).
  • External trauma to neck.
I use Hydrogen Peroxide to clean wax from my ears. Is this a safe practice and how often should you clean your ears?
Wax production is normal, and there is a natural turnover of wax in the ears. Cleaning is not necessary except in a few individuals who have very narrow external canals who may experience a build up of wax against the ear drum. I wouldn’t have thought that hydrogen peroxide was a good idea at all, since it can cause irritation to the skin, and may damage the sensitive skin lining your external ear canal.
Should we use ear buds to remove wax?
The main cause of wax build–up, is people trying to clean out their ears with cotton buds! This simply pushes the wax back down the external canal, where it gets impacted in the ear canal and eventually needs to be syringed out! Leave your ears alone. The wax will come out on its own without any help. Incidentally, ear wax is soluble in water. Generally only 10% population needs wax removal and that has to be done under medical supervision especially an ENT specialist.
How can Air Travel cause problems?
Air travel is sometimes associated with rapid changes in air pressure. To maintain comfort, the Eustachian tube must function properly, that is, open frequently and widely enough to equalize the changes in air pressure. This is especially true when the airplane is coming down for a landing, going from low atmospheric pressure down closer to earth where the air pressure is higher.
In the early days of airplanes with open cabins and cockpits, this was a major problem to flyers. Today’s aircraft are pressurized so that air pressure changes are minimized. Putting nasal drops and chewing movements will reduce the problem (particularly in children).
When is hearing evaluation indicated?

Hearing evaluation may be indicated if a young child has limited, poor, or no speech; seems frequently inattentive, has difficulty learning; or has any signs of hearing loss, such as increasing the television volume. In conjunction with any behavioral symptoms, hearing assessment also may be necessary if there are certain risk factors for hearing loss, such as childhood hearing loss in family members, severe complications at birth, frequent ear infections, or infections such as meningitis or Cytomegalo virus and also if mother suffers from measles or mumps or any viral infection during pregnancy.
