A Growing Need.
According to numerous articles and studies, there are millions of Americans who experience from some kind of sleep disorder, including insomnia, snoring, and sleep apnea — many of whom go undiagnosed and suffer unnecessarily.
What’s even more dramatic is that these numbers are expected to increase, due in large part to the obesity epidemic in this country which affects every population group from the aging Baby Boomers to young children.
Sleep disorders are more than just a nuisance that affects both job performance and personal relationships. When you consider that studies have shown that men in particular who are affected by severe sleep apnea have an almost 60% increased risk of developing heart failure1, it is clear that sleep disorders have become a life-threatening health crisis.

An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders.
At least 37 million Americans experience regular or chronic snoring.
Over 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea.
As children’s obesity continues to rise, childhood OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) is estimated to be as high as 10 to 20% in habitually snoring children.
The treatment of sleep disorders accounts for an estimated $16 billion in medical costs each year.
These numbers are expected to increase in years to come!
