ng from undiagnosed OSA. The overall awareness of OSA, its seriousness and attendant risks has reached the point that ignoring this problem will undoubtedly carry a high price in the future."

The prevalence of undiagnosed OSA has increased within the transportation industry. During the past twelve years, studies have shown significant awareness of OSA within the trucking industry -- from employers and employees. This recent study, conducted by Advanced Brain Monitoring, found no significant differences in the prevalence of undiagnosed OSA among pre-hires or transportation managers. Results in both groups were similar to those obtained by researchers at Stanford University during the 1990s. The research suggests the high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea, combined with an increasingly older and heavier commercial driver population, requires specific and actionable steps to preserve the safety of the US motoring public.

"When it comes to responsible motoring, there is more at stake then just the truck driver's license," says Dr. Philip Westbrook, past-president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and Chief Medical Officer of ABM. "The simple truth is OSA is a relatively easy and inexpensive disease to diagnose and effectively treat. Immediate cost savings are recognized a result of improved driver health, more than enough to cover the cost for diagnosis and treatment within six months. Doing nothing is the only inappropriate action given our knowledge of how many undiagnosed OSA drivers are on the road and the increased accident risk they pose."

Apnea Risk Evaluation System (ARES(TM)) Technology

ABM has developed significant and cost-effective technologies to assist the transportation industry address this potential OSA epidemic. The company has developed and validated the ARES Screener, a questionnaire and statistical analysis that provides an inexpensive and accurate means to identify drivers with the likelihood of having mild, mode
