SANTA ROSA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 21, 2020 / World Wide Web: WellAwareSystems is pleased to announce the publication of the most current information about Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The resource site is focused on helping those who suffer from the condition. The site founder, T. Oldham, was diagnosed with the condition a decade ago when he was still in his thirties. As a professional engineer suffering from sleep apnea, Oldham understands the frustration of needing sleep, but upon awakening, feel as if no sleep occurred.
After years of sleepless nights, snoring, and fatigue and an extensive series of tests including nocturnal polysomnography to monitor breathing patterns, brains, lung, heart activity, and blood oxygen levels measured during sleep, the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea was delivered. His engineering background ensured that he understood the concepts of CPAP machines and other medical devices, but realized that the machines are not one-size-fits-all.
According to a spokesperson for the website, “Our sleep blog is staffed by those who have experienced varying degrees of sleep apnea and understand the emotional impact of a diagnosis. Each of us has experienced shock and fear related to finding out that we have stopped breathing while sleeping. Our team is small, but is slowly building up to offer more guidelines on combating the condition, and reviews on various types of medical devices.”
