What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is a chronic disease that is rising in prevalence in the U.S. Studies estimate that sleep apnea afflicts as much as 24% of the U.S. population, with 80% going undiagnosed*. Sleep apnea can occur in people of all ages, race, ethnicity, and gender. 

Common indicators of sleep apnea are: obesity (BMI over 35), daytime sleepiness, impaired cognition, mood disorders depression or irritability, insomnia, heart disease, history of stroke or high blood pressure, family history of sleep apnea, large neck size (+17 inches), loud snoring, episodes of breathing cessation during sleep, abrupt awakenings accompanied by gasping or choking, awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat, morning headache, nighttime sweating and decreased libido. 

If you experience any of these symptoms you should protect your health and be screened for sleep apnea with our program. The initial screening offered to our members is easy, fast and best of all, it’s “FREE!”

Attention Member Drivers – Protect your CDL / Medical Certificate / DOT Regulations

Keep your CDL in full force and effect. Recently enacted DOT Regulations have now added to your commercial driver’s bi-annual DOT exam a sleep apnea diagnosis component. This is nothing to be afraid of as long as you understand what this new component means. SleepMaster Solutions ™ eliminates any fears of this component by providing our drivers with a free, absolutely no-cost, screening to see if they show risk factors for sleep apnea. This should be done well in advance of your scheduled, required DOT exam. If no indicators are present during the screening, SMS issues an appropriate, medically-approved “compliance certificate” indicating so, and your requirements under this part of the exam are complete. If sleep apnea risk factors are present, SMS will arrange with you for a convenient, inexpensive home sleep apnea test to determine whether or not you have sleep apnea. If the home test is negative, SMS issues the appropriate compliance certificate to that effect. If the home test is positive, SMS will arrange with you for a treatment program that is fully compliant with DOT Regulations. 

- You will not lose time from work
