Technology Breakthroughs in SleepTechnology Breakthroughs in Sleep Apnea PR Newswire MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Nov. 14, 2013 -- Discover how transformative medical advances help minimize sleep apneic risks during Frost & Sullivan's latest complimentary webinar WHEN: 11:00 a.m. EST on Thursday, Nov. 21, 2013 LOCATION:Online, with free registration SPEAKER: Frost & Sullivan Technical Insights Analyst Saju John Mathew Sleep apnea is a growing global disorder due to ever increasing sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle choices. The direct and indirect cost of productivity loss due to sleep disorders translates to hundreds of billions of dollars a year. This spurred active research in this sphere. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices are the most common devices used to treat widespread types of sleep apnea; however, adoption suffers from poor acceptance and compliance rates. The demand for current CPAP devices to evolve into much finer and ergonomic versions with improved features relieving patients of negative side effects such as skin breakdown and nasal congestion, and increase their ability to adhere to sleep therapy is a large unmet need. The industry is considered highly attractive as there are large numbers of undiagnosed populations. The rising demand for sleep disorder diagnosis can be addressed by improving the reliability of home based sleep studies.
