The South Toowoomba Apex Club had their 50th Annual Change Over Dinner on 9th of July at Gips Restaurant in Toowoomba. The Club celebrated 50 years of service to the community with a winter wonderland themed ball. As part of the festivities of the night outgoing President Georgia Soutar made a presentation to the RSPCA donating $500 for new equipment and $500 to Rosie’s Friends of the Street for a portable fridge and freezer. Annette Skaines from Rosie’s Friends of the Street was Guest Speaker for the evening and thanked the club for getting involved and running a community outreach BBQ once a month with Rosie’s.

At the event the Club sold raffle tickets, with all of the prizes donated by local businesses. The Club was able to raise over $1,000.00 on the night which they will use to buy and donate non-perishable supplies to the Rockville State School Breakfast Club. Councilor Megan, O’Hara Sullivan attended the event and Former Attorney General Kerry Shine was also in attendance. The club was lucky enough to have some of their Past Members and Life Members present on the evening as there was a surprise presentation ceremony for Life Membership to Steve Woods, who upon his recent retirement from the Club had been an active member for 19 years. Incoming President Sarah-Jane MacDonald said “I look forward to the next 12 months of Apex continuing to support our local community.”

Over the last 50 years the South Toowoomba Apex Club has completed over 50,000.00 hours of community service to the Toowoomba Community through various service projects.

If you have sleep apnea, you need to know that you are not alone. Sleep apnea is fairly common and millions of people around the planet have it. If you have been wondering what a sleep apnea diagnosis means for your life, read on to learn what you need to know about it.

One way to improve your sleep apnea is to shed excess weight that you are carrying. Being overweight or obese places pressure on your neck, which can compress your windpipe as you sleep. Losing just 25 pounds can make a difference in your symptoms, and losing enough weight can eliminate the disorder altogether.

Try your best to lay off tobacco and nicotine products. Cigarette smoke can irritate your upper airway causing it to swell up, subsequently hindering your ability to breath during the night. Quitting smoking could therefore, significantly improve your sleep apnea symptoms and will also improve your body's overall health and your feelings of well-being.

If you have sleep apnea, be sure to ask your doctor every five years if you should have a follow-up sleep study. As your weight and health change, your CPAP pressure may need to be adjusted. The most accurate way to reassess your needs is to have another sleep study with CPAP so the appropriate pressure can be determined.

Understand the effects that smoking and drinking alcohol have on sleep apnea, if you are trying to get a grip on your quality of sleep. Smoking enlarges airways, while alcohol can relax them too much, both of which will contribute to the symptoms of sleep apnea severely. Consider making the necessary cut-backs that will cut down on your sleep problems.

Don't give up on treatment for sleep apnea after one doesn't work. There are a variety of treatments for your condition, so finding the right one is sometimes a process of trial and error. The number and severity of your symptoms influence what treatment is correct one for you. Giving multiple treatments a chance ensures you find the one that works the most effectively.

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, it is important to avoid drinking alcohol. Alcoholic beverages will relax the muscles in your throat, which makes it more likely that they will block your airway during your sleep. At the very least, avoid any alcoholic beverages in the evening before you get ready for bed.

If you use a continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP machine to treat your sleep apnea, sleep with it every night. When you take the mask off at night, your symptoms will return. Sometimes they might disappear for one or two nights, but then return. Wearing the mask every night prevents episodes of sleep apnea from occurring.

Minimize your risk from the conditions causing sleep apnea. Some sleep apnea risk factors cannot be changed, like genetic or hereditary reasons. But others, such as weight smoking and drinking, can be controlled.

Throughout history, sleep apnea has been one of the most frustrating, often dangerous conditions from which a person can suffer. Anyone wishing to alleviate their sleep apnea symptoms must first acquire complete comprehension of the condition's causes and possible treatments. Keep the material from this article nearby, and you will have a useful reference to help you navigate the sea of potential solutions.
