Number one killer in the world.
Our nation faces serious health care challenges, now and in the years ahead – an aging and more diverse population, more chronic conditions, rising costs and a shortage of providers are threatening the health of our nation.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) causes disruptive, non-restorative sleep and decreases the body’s oxygen levels. This results in systemic inflammation and damage to the heart and brain over time. Patients are often sleepy and can have difficulty concentrating , with accompanying memory problems.

Did you know? Although 1 in 4 adults have an airway health problem, less than 15% are aware of it? The Foundation for Airway Health has made it their mission to raise airway health awareness to 50% by 2020.
