According to the National Center on Sleep Disorders Research, more than 70 million Americans suffer from disorders of sleep and wakefulness. Of those 70 million, nearly 60 percent have a chronic disorder. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) can lead to serious health risks, including high blood pressure, heart problems, and possibly a stroke. The drowsiness associated with OSA is also a hazard, as it can cause automobile or on the job accidents.
