Six Sleep Apnea Sufferers CPAP May Not Help
Date:11/12/2013

coming up with rules applying to OSA testing for members of the trucking industry, but while the thought is that CPAP will be the first line of defense against exhaustion among such drivers, challenges do exist. Because truckers may sleep in their own bed one night, a motel room the next, and their own cabin after that, the annoyance of lugging around CPAP equipment and setting it up properly renders CPAP ineffective for many people.
