Sleep apnea

Sleep Apnea is a common health problem. Nearly a billion people worldwide are estimated to have Sleep Apnea.

Many studies have shown significant risk factors associated with undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea including daytime sleepiness, hypertension, traffic accidents, diabetes, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. An aging population and obesity aggravate dramatically the prevalence of sleep apnea. Despite the increasing demand for faster diagnosis and effective treatment, there is a lack of technological advances and resources in the conventional clinical setting. The prevailing diagnostic test for sleep apnea tends to be inadequate and costly; which limits patient access to testing.

As a result, as many as 90% of people with sleep apnea could remain undiagnosed.
