Occupational Sleep Apnea
If you own a trucking company and are looking ways to cut costs and maintain healthy employees, you have come to the right place. With a focus in occupational sleep apnea, Aeroflow Healthcare is dedicated to providing the safest, yet most cost efficient way to help you run a healthy business. For years truckers have been living by the theme time is money. Even if with regulated driving times, drivers spend less time getting the proper sleep, or worrying about the side effects to make their deliveries due to occupational sleep apnea. So we have found a way to spin the time is money theme to make it work for you. Our in-home testing devices can be done on your time, instead of a sleep lab, and can be received at a fraction of the price of on-site facility test.
Eliminating occupational sleep apnea is very simple if the proper time and effort is dedicated to it. Since FMCSA regulations don’t currently demand that every commercial driver get tested for sleep apnea, the most effective way to fight occupational sleep apnea is to recognize the symptoms. One of the main symptoms of occupational sleep apnea is Excessive Daytime Somnolence (EDS). This is when a person feels an increased pressure to fall asleep and their alertness is reduced. Some of the other common symptoms of occupational sleep apnea are more easily spotted. Loud snoring (although everyone who snores doesn’t have sleep apnea, but everyone who has sleep apnea does snore), periods of time where breathing is paused while sleep, frequent headaches and restless sleep.
If you find that you can relate to one or more of these symptoms, you may very well have been suffering from occupational sleep apnea. It has been found that over 80% of people who are suffering from occupational sleep apnea go undiagnosed. Don’t continue to be one of those contributing to this statistic. As stated above, Aeroflow Healthcare has a way to help. Contact one of our experienced reps and we will get you back on the road to a healthy lifestyle today.
