Report: Sleep Apnea Diagnosis, Treatment to Increase in 2013
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) remains one of the more common sleep disorders in America, affecting over 20 million people each night. Adversely, OSA remains undiagnosed in over 80% of those who suffer. Sleep Group Solutions (SGS), leaders in dental sleep medicine education and technology, educates dentists how to properly identify and treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea with oral appliances. The company’s complete sleep solutions protocol includes OSA screening and airway diagnostic technology, insurance billing solutions, oral appliances and home sleep testing bundled with comprehensive in-office training programs. Sleep Group Solutions is pleased to include the Watermark ARES™ Level III home sleep testing device, as part of the complete sleep solutions protocol.
Dentists have become a first line of defense in treating patients who snore or have sleep apnea. Sleep Group Solutions seminars lay the foundation for a successful dental sleep medicine practice. SGS is pleased to add the Watermark ARES™ Level III device to the complete sleep solutions protocol, for home sleep testing. SGS VP John Nadeau recently commented on the new partnership; “The sleep medicine industry has embraced portable monitors for both screening and diagnosis of OSA. Adding the Watermark system to complement our existing Embletta home sleep test options will help grow the dental sleep medicine market and offer additional diagnostic options to more patients who are in desperate need of diagnosis and treatment. I look forward to working with Watermark and future collaboration between the SGS dental sleep medicine and Watermark medical client networks as well.”
Watermark Medical is a medical products and services company servicing the sleep-disordered breathing market. President, Charlie Alvarez, mentions “We are excited about working with SGS and their Complete Sleep Solutions Protocol. WM has been the leader in home sleep testing in the primary care market for many years. Our partnership with SGS allows us to enter into the dental market with the leader in dental sleep medicine continuing education. The WM ARES simplicity and our breadth of market coverage will work nicely with SGS’s seminar series across the country.”
