The latest technology in Sleep Apnea treatment is the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (or CPAP) device. It is estimated that only 2,000 new CPAP devices were installed in 2011. This compares to the estimated more than 18.0 million people that the Sleep Apnea Foundation estimates suffer from Sleep Apnea.
The biggest obstacle to treatment is simply that patients do not use the CPAP device regularly. The goal of Sanomedics is to provide patients with access to in-home licensed care practitioners who specialize in treating respiratory patients. These practitioners will customize the device to fit comfortably on the patient.
