March 20th is Sleep Apnea Awareness Day - Join us on at 7pm EDT Facebook LIVE

Join us on Wednesday March 20th at 7pm EDT

Join Kevin Bradley and our patient panel this Wednesday on Facebook LIVE and talk about the symptoms, signs and journey to getting their sleep apnea diagnosis.

Did you know the ASAA’s recently conducted survey of sleep apnea patients showed:
  • 30% of respondents also reported having GERD – a rate much higher than the estimated U.S. prevalence of 18%. 
  • 45% stated high blood pressure and sleep apnea – higher than the estimated U.S. occurrence of 33%. 
  • 20% reported also having diabetes – more than twice the estimated U.S. prevalence
  • 15% of respondents also reported having major depression – which is more then 2x the U.S. diagnosis
Typical symptoms of sleep apnea include heavy snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue, difficulty with concentration or memory, and waking during the night feeling short of breath. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to serious health consequences, but with treatment many people see dramatic improvements to their quality of life. Join us in raising awareness of sleep apnea this Wednesday, March 20th at 7pm EDT on Facebook LIVE.

FREE WEBINARS: All our webinars are recorded and can be watched anytime.
