Sleep apnea is a growing global disorder due to ever increasing sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle choices. The direct and indirect cost of productivity loss due to sleep disorders translates to hundreds of billions of dollars a year. This spurred active research in this sphere. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices are the most common devices used to treat widespread types of sleep apnea; however, adoption suffers from poor acceptance and compliance rates. The demand for current CPAP devices to evolve into much finer and ergonomic versions with improved features relieving patients of negative side effects such as skin breakdown and nasal congestion, and increase their ability to adhere to sleep therapy is a large unmet need. The industry is considered highly attractive as there are large numbers of undiagnosed populations. The rising demand for sleep disorder diagnosis can be addressed by improving the reliability of home based sleep studies.

This briefing will benefit hospital CEOs, chief technology officers, physicians and CPAP device manufacturers, as well as startup companies, research organizations, and patients and medical staff interested or involved in the sleeping disorders space.
"Sleep apnea is a worldwide disorder in desperate need of early diagnosis solutions to prevent related health concerns, which, if left untreated, can eventually lead to premature death," says Frost & Sullivan Technical Insights Analyst Saju John Mathew. "Lifestyle changes along with the right treatment strategy can minimize this global issue a great extent."
