MNAP Sleep Center Welcomes Truckers as DOT Cracks Down on Sleep Disorders
Date:2/11/2013

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) February 11, 2013

MNAP Sleep Center opens its doors to those at risk as The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (a part of the United States Department of Transportation) cracks down on sleep deprived driving. Those with a CDL license will see a new addition to their physical this year. Drivers at risk for Sleep Apnea or other sleep disorders are urged to undergo further evaluation with a sleep specialist and perhaps have a sleep study in order to keep driving.

The medical professionals at MNAP Sleep Center (http://mnap.com/sleep-center/sleep-center) have extensive experience in this area and though some drivers are not too happy to have the Department of Transportation checking their sleep patterns, the purpose of this invasion is to further ensure the safety of all drivers on the road including those being tested. Sleep Apnea is a disorder that could go unnoticed for years and without proper diagnosis and treatment can lead to oxygen deprivation for vital organs including the brain, slowing reaction times and leaving a person tired and groggy.

Those at risk include persons that suffer from snoring, are overweight or those that have a large neck size (over 17”). "Sleep disorders can extremely debilitating. The great news is that they are usually treatable and easily detected through a sleep test (polysomnography)." says Dr. Raoul Biniaurishvili, M.D., Ph.D., head of the Sleep Lab at MNAP.
