Who is American Sleep and Epilepsy Centers?
This site is a new consumer education and sleep testing initiative of American Sleep Centers, Inc., dedicated to helping pacients who live with the problem of Obstructive Sleep Apnea and other sleep disorders -- but who have not been diagnosed so they can receive the necessary treatment.
Caused by a weakening, collapse or blockage of the airway, people with OSA suffer from involuntary breathing pauses that occur while you are sleeping. The result? You never get the important restful sleep you need.
American Sleep Centers, Inc. is working with the private insurance industry, the government and public health organizations who are very concerned about the large numbers of Sleep Apnea patients who are getting sicker each day and are using more and more healthcare resources. This, of course, is driving up healthcare expenses and the insurance rates for everyone.
By getting people diagnosed earlier, and promptly receiving treatment, not only are people's lives improved, but also healthcare costs can be held down.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a serious and potentially life-threatening chronic condition that is far more common than generally understood. As many people have undiagnosed Sleep Apnea as Diabetes or Asthma.
Of greater concern is that Obstructive Sleep Apnea is associated with higher accident rates, diabetes, high blood pressure (Hypertension), congestive heart failure, cardiovascular disease, erectile dysfunction, stroke and even death.
