SleepQuest Raises Awareness of Sleep Disorders
Date:3/4/2008

Efforts coincide with National Sleep Awareness Week March 3-9

SAN CARLOS, Calif., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The groggy truth has come out: America is feeling drowsy. According to the National Sleep Foundation's Sleep in America poll, Americans are often sleepy at work, drive drowsy, and lose interest in sex because of sleepiness due to working an average 9.5 hours per day and another 4.5 hours per week at home. Many may also suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and other sleep disorders.

As America sleepwalks through the day, SleepQuest continues to educate the public about the dangers of sleep disorders and diagnosis/treatment options in conjunction with National Sleep Awareness Week (NSAW) March 3-9.

"NSAW provides an opportunity to bring sleep challenges to the forefront of news," said Robert Koenigsberg, President of SleepQuest. "We are preparing communications that highlight sleep's importance and diagnosing and treating sleep disorders."

This year's NSAW theme of "Sleep, Performance and the Workplace" is being highlighted by SleepQuest messages targeted towards customers and the Bay Area public.

This follows their third appearance at the KCBS Health Etc. fair, which saw over 5,000 attendees. Dr. Kin Yuen, SleepQuest Medical Officer and Board Certified Sleep Physician at Stanford's Sleep Disorder Clinic, delivered a standing room only presentation. Keynote speaker Dr. Mehmet Oz also presented a poignant and timely address on the dangers associated with sleep apnea. Dr. Oz is an award winning author and most famous for his frequent appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

"Dr. Oz made several references to the risks associated with sleep apnea, again reinforcing that this condition is prevalent and needs to be diagnosed and treated," said Lori Schulman, SleepQuest's Director of Contracting.

"Both our presence at KCBS and our support of NSAW continues to bring public attention to the thousands suffering from sleep apnea that go untreated," said Schulman. "If the quality of your sleep is not restful or restorative, and you have symptoms suggestive of sleep apnea, you should seek help."

For more than 10 years, SleepQuest has established itself as a leader in at-home testing and treatment of sleep apnea. They hope their efforts before, during, and after NSAW will prompt sleep sufferers to seek assistance and feel better.
