You may have heard of ResMed’s OSA awareness website HealthySleep.com, but have you shared it with your patients and referral sources?
ResMed’s HealthySleep.com is an educational website designed to promote awareness of OSA among undiagnosed OSA sufferers and their loved ones, and to encourage patients at high risk to seek medical guidance. In addition, HealthySleep.com includes information for health care professionals seeking to learn more about sleep apnea.
The website provides an overview of the importance of quality sleep, along with exercise and diet, to a healthy life. The site also features a variety of resources to help empower people to discuss their symptoms with their doctor, including brochures, videos and links to other online resources. Visitors may also take a brief sleep apnea screening quiz to self-assess their risk and share their results with their health care provider.
We encourage you to share HealthySleep.com with your patients and your referring partners as a valuable patient resource to help undiagnosed OSA sufferers understand the symptoms and health risks of untreated OSA, as well as the diagnosis process and treatment.
