In our fast-paced modern world getting enough sleep is a major concern for just about everyone. Whether your lack of sleep is due to work, raising kids or burning the candle at both ends, we can all do with more of it; and when your own attempts fail sometimes you need expert help.

The new Asia Sleep Centre at Paragon, opened in September 2012, is headed by world-renowned sleep surgeon Dr Kenny Pang; this man is an expert in discovering why you can’t sleep or why your sleep doesn’t seem to stop you feeling tired.

At the Asia Sleep Centre, Dr Pang handles all sorts of Sleep Disorders including snoring, obstructive sleep apnoea, insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep walking, night terrors, bed wetting, and parasomnias, as well as ENT conditions, Head and Neck and Thyroid disorders. So no matter what your problem is, Dr Pang can sort you out.

The Asia Sleep Centre caters for all sorts of patients, from those who can’t get to sleep – insomniacs – to people who can’t stay awake – apneics. There’s state-of-the-art equipment to examine everything from your airways via an endoscope to a convenient home-based wrist-worn Sleep Diagnostic watch device to monitor your sleep patterns.

Dr Pang is also the inventor of the “Pang’s Expansion Pharyngoplasty” which has shown 86 per cent success rates in patients with snoring and sleep Apnea – issues which can affect men and women both.

To help you when you’re at home the Asia Sleep Centre is also launching a series of smartphone aps which will be available late September. Starting with a Child Sleep ap – for all the parents out there – and an Insomnia ap – for the rest of us – these aps will be able to help you out with useful tips and interactive features. Two more aps will be launched early in 2013; one to deal with Snoring and another for Sinus Allergy conditions.
