Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Awareness Campaign
How deep is your sleep?
Do you feel sleepy all day? Do you snore loudly when you sleep? Do you stop breathing in your sleep, as noticed by a loved one?
If the answer is yes you could be a risk of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).
OSA is easy to treat, and treatment can hugely improve your health and the quality of your life. The British Lung Foundation is here to help.
Come along to one of our free OSA testing events where you can find out more, take a simple, free test, and ask questions to the experts.

Get your lungs tested
Find out in five minutes if you’re at risk of lung disease
Do you often feel breathless? Perhaps you've had a cough for three weeks or more, a wheezy chest or excess phlegm? If so, get checked out at one of our Love your Lungs events.
We hold events all over the country in accessible public places like supermarkets and shopping centres. You can get a free lung function test, along with plenty of advice and information to take away from friendly British Lung Foundation staff and trained nurses.
Upcoming Love your Lungs events
There are currently no upcoming events.
What does it involve?
Having a lung function test only takes five minutes, doesn’t hurt and is very easy to do – you simply blow into a mouthpiece five times and you’re done.
Teams from local authorities that specialise in helping you stop smoking often join us at events, giving advice and information if you’re looking to kick the habit.
If you can’t make it to our event, but you’re concerned about any of the symptoms above, contact your GP or call the BLF Helpline.
Are you a health authority or employer interested in running a Love your Lungs event with us?
