Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Key risk factors for the development of sleep apnea include obesity, life style habits such as smoking, alcohol, and substance abuse, and irregular sleep patterns. The risk of sleep apnea is much higher in the age group above 50-60 years. As per estimates published by the United Nations in 2012, the global geriatric population was nearly 800 million and is expected to more than double by 2050 to reach over 2,000 million
Growing demand for sleep tests and pressure from insurers has moved sleep tests from sleep labs to home testing.
DormoTech Medical specializes in the Home testing (HST) market but has value to the Lab setting too.
