More than 12 million Americans are affected by sleep apnea significant enough to require treatment, according to the National Institutes of Health. The Greek word “apnea” literally means “without breath.” There are three types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed; of the three, obstructive is the most common. Despite the difference in the root cause of each type, in all three, people with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer. With the proper sleep apnea testing it can be diagnosed and treated successfully.
We have a free online Sleep Apnea Survey on our website so can get your sleep score. Sleep apnea is a very serious condition that needs to be diagnosed and treated. This free service is for people like you who are interested in having their answers reviewed by a physician at absolutely no charge. The physician requires some basic information from you in case your questionnaire results are positive and you need to be contacted regarding sleep apnea testing. Your results and information are considered private and are protected information under Federal and State laws.
We also have a forum on our website that you can participate in and talk to others who have had testing, diagnosis and are undergoing treatment.
