In developing the new app, ResApp Health CEO Tony Keating said: “Many Australians snore, but few know that snoring is a leading indicator of a more serious condition, such as sleep apnoea.”
RELATED: Worrying trend Aussies are searching A Deloitte analysis in 2018 commissioned by charity the Sleep Health Foundation found obstructive sleep apnoea cost Australia $21.2 billion a year.

A new Australian app could potentially save your life by evaluating your risk of complications from sleep apnoea, a common disorder that affects around 5 per cent of all Australians, particularly men.
“As I suspected that I had sleep apnoea, I tried using a couple of freebie apps which were useful in determining hours slept and snoring issues but it is SleepCheck that is actually programmed to detect sleep apnoea,” another positive reviewer said.
While politicians wrangled over a pandemic relief package and schools struggled over whether to open their doors to students, the US passed another milestone on Saturday: more than five million known coronavirus infections — adding a million cases in just over two weeks, according to Johns Hopkins University .
The number of new coronavirus cases daily peaked on July 16, with 75,697.
The nation people has been reporting an average of more than 1,000 daily deaths from the pandemic since May.Australian state of Victoria , reported its deadliest day of the outbreak on Sunday with 17 deaths.
It also has reported 394 cases in the past 24 hours.In some positive news, New Zealand on Sunday marked 100 days without a domestic transmission of the coronavirus, but warned against complacency.
New Zealand has 23 active cases in managed isolation facilities, and 1,219 cases in all so far.
I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve aborted an NTC plan within a week.
It customises exercise plans based on your fitness level and preferences, such as the number of sessions a week and whether you want to add runs or equipment like weights.
The last time I made it a point to move my flabby butt at least three times a week was four years ago.
So when my kids settled down to watch TV one night, I decided to attempt something constructive at the same time: I worked out next to them, to a short YouTube video by British personal trainer Lucy Wyndham-Read.
But I’m now on Week Two of a four-week plan and think I might actually complete it for the first time.

Start the day with a high-fibre breakfast, paired with yoghurt, for the probiotics, and fruit, for more fibre, and a little honey, and you’ve literally go everything you need for daily gut health at breakfast.”
You might think it’s just the food you eat that controls the health of your gut, and it definitely does but there are all sorts of external factors that play a role, too.
“The gut microbiome is all the microorganisms — that’s bacteria, viruses, fungus, all sorts of weird and wonderful things — that live inside our gut,” Dr Beckett says.
We have so many more methods of measuring what’s going in the gut, and how it relates to the food we eat, and our health.”
Mix it up “We’ve learned that if we feed our gut bacteria well, particularly with foods high in fibre like fruits, vegetables and legumes, then we can help prebiotics proliferate,” Nicole says.
STEP THREE: THE RESULTS After the machines determine positive from negative, the results are analysed by scientists and potentially reviewed by pathologists, before the results are given to the requesting clinician and public health if need be.
“Some of the vagaries of testing for patients who might have low levels of the virus can fluctuate around the ‘cut-off’ that determines positive from negative, so sometimes retesting the same sample can give us more information, sometimes we’ll need to engage public health to request a retest.”
In some instances, the person behind the questionable positive will need to be re-swabbed, but Dr Bursle said in most cases the machine can pick up a true result.

Ms Collins and Dr Bursle said due to the increased demand for testing, labs had to prioritise samples.
The situation seems to be related to macOS 10.15.5’s new Battery Health Management feature that will mean the Mac stops charging its battery in an attempt to try and ensure that it lasts longer in the long run.
When battery health management is turned on, you might occasionally see “Not Charging” in the battery status menu of your Mac, and your battery’s maximum charge level might be lowered temporarily.
This is normal, and it’s how battery health management optimizes charging.
Part of doing that is the new feature that will try to prevent a battery spending too long at maximum capacity – something that’s known to cause premature aging.
However, while Battery Health Management is enabled by default, it can be disabled.
Kirk says another recommendation made in the new guidelines is for health-care workers to assess their own attitudes and beliefs about weight.
the mindset of obesity on World Obesity the mindset of obesity on World Obesity Day According to a news release, the new clinical guideline’s key recommendations are: Ask permission to discuss weight: Health-care practitioners must recognize obesity as a chronic disease with stigma and should not assume all patients with obesity are prepared to address it.
Kirk says this will be the first time a national clinical guideline includes a chapter on weight stigma — globally.
Weight stigma and negative experiences can encourage patients to avoid seeking care in the future, which can have long-term consequences on their health, says Kirk.
Kirk says there is evidence that health-care providers with biased attitudes towards weight provide lesser quality health care to patients of higher weight.
All of the fatalities were connected to the state’s plagued aged-care facilities where a man in his 70s, another man and three women in their 80s, two men and three women in their 90s and a woman in her 100s all died.
It comes after Melburnians woke up to the second day of a strict stage-four lockdown, with many distraught business owners learning their fate on Monday afternoon.
Business closures will see another 250,000 Melbourne workers forced to stay home, with supermarkets, bottle shops, pharmacies, petrol stations, banks, newsagencies and post offices to remain open.
Construction sites and meatworks will run at reduced capacity, while other retail, manufacturing and administration businesses will be closed for six weeks.
Victoria recorded 429 new infections on Monday, with 13 people tragically succumbing to the virus.
'Alcohol (three drinking days a week only for both brain and body in lockdown), chocolate and chilli chips - not selling "perfection" here (or anything actually) - it's about survival,' Dr Alexander said, with a laughing emoji.
While Dr Alexander said she enjoys a glass of wine as much as the next person, she also said you need to watch your consumption in lockdown.
Dr Alexander shared her practical tips to following during coronavirus lockdown Dr Alexander said routine will help you 'in a huge way' as you approach the second wave of lockdown.
Dr Alexander told Victorian residents it's 'ok to feel overwhelmed right now' as she urged everyone to do 'mental health check ins' with family and friends.
'We went for a walk after some anxiety-related chest tightness during the announcements and a loud cry afterwards to my mum on the phone and we planned hard how we will survive the next six weeks,' Dr Alexander said.
When applied to the scalp, the stem cell proteins send signals to the hair follicles, to encourage the inactive cells to wake up – and work harder.
In fact, an independent laboratory study has shown that this Miracle Stem Cell Solution can help boost hair’s growth cycle by up to 50 per cent!
The brand (together with bio-scientists and trichologists) has developed a Miracle Stem Cell Solution treatment, which uses a high concentration of stem cell proteins and a cocktail of active ingredients – think nano-sized growth factors, peptides, cytokines, vitamins, antioxidants and DHT blockers (DHT is a hormone known to shrink the hair follicles, which can trigger the onset of hair loss).
Here are five reasons you’re losing hair and some solutions, from ways to destress and what food to eat for healthier hair, to an anti-hair loss treatment that uses stem cells.
And not cleansing the scalp of styling product build-up can suffocate the hair follicles – all of which can lead to hair loss.
PARIS: Travellers entering France from 16 countries where the coronavirus is circulating widely are having to undergo virus tests upon arrival at French airports and ports.
French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced last month that the tests would be required starting Aug 1 for the arriving passengers France is allowing in from the listed countries unless they present proof of a negative test done within 72 hours of their departure.
France is not permitting general travel to and from the 16 countries, which include the United States and Brazil.
The testing requirement therefore only applies to people entering under limited circumstances - “French citizens who live in these countries or citizens of these countries with an established residence in France,” Castex has said.
The French government has so far ruled out imposing another nationwide lockdown after the one that brought the country to a standstill for nearly two months between March and May.
All in all, this would be a great first firearm for those looking to get into the sport and while silver often goes to second place this is by no means simply a “runner up” shotgun even if it took a second try and a bit of refinement to get the Silver Reserve II to the finish line!
While the Silver Reserve II won't easily be confused with a Holland & Holland or other high-end over/under shotgun out there it is still a quality firearm that delivers in the key areas.
The Silver Reserve II line has been expanded and includes both field and sporting models including the Field, Sport, Combo and Side-by-Side and these are available in four popular gauges including 12, 20, 28 gauges and .410 Bore; and with barrels ranging from 26 to 32 inches.
This over/under shotgun line was first introduced in 2011, and while Mossberg delivered a quality firearm at a reasonable price—something the company has been doing since it was founded in 1919—the Turkish-made Silver Reserve wasn't exactly what the market wanted and hunters didn't flock to it.
Both points are necessary to denote when discussing the Mossberg Silver Reserve II over/under shotgun—because simply put in its initial release it didn’t exactly take the hunting world by storm.
Not all the endings are as peaceful as Gwen’s, and Guérin says that in testing, players usually encounter one that really affects them.
She helps you through the first part of the game – she is the tutorial character, almost – but she has a complex relationship with her parents, particularly her father, and her constant smoking is in fact the cause of her death.
Guérin is creative director at Thunder Lotus Games, and Spiritfarer is a slight shift from their action games Sundered and Jotun.
“You can hug anyone, by the way,” Nicolas Guérin tells me, during my recent hands-on preview.
Spiritfarer, the “cosy management game about dying”, is full of many little acts of kindness.
