We tried to condense the most important research and information about sleep apnea into one readable guide.
Van Nuys, California (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
Aviisha Medical Institute, LLC has released its long-anticipated Guide to Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The guide was authored by Aviisha’s Medical Director, Dr. Avi Ishaaya, and is the only online guide written by a certified sleep physician. The guide is free to download and share and can be accessed at http://www.aviisha.com/new/ebook.
“In addition to testing and treating patients, one of our main goals at the institute is raising awareness about sleep apnea,” said Dr. Avi. “Sleep apnea affects one in every five to fifteen people, but 80-90% of them are undiagnosed and in need of treatment. We created this ebook to help spread the word about sleep apnea.”
The ebook is packed useful information about diagnosing and treating sleep apnea, including:
- Biology and Causes of Sleep Apnea
- Dangers and Complications
- Risk Factors
- Screening for OSA
- Tips for Adjusting to CPAP and APAP
Special attention is given to the consequences of untreated sleep apnea and the benefits of CPAP treatment. The ebook also features a special section on screening for OSA, with a brief questionnaire patients can print, fill out, and return to their doctor. The section on diagnosis illustrates how a sleep study is scored and interpreted.
“We tried to condense the most important research and information about sleep apnea into one readable guide. The ebook is a valuable resource for diagnosed patients, physicians, and those at high risk for sleep apnea,” explained Dr. Avi. “Snorers, overweight individuals, men, and those approaching older age are at especially high risk and could benefit from this book immensely.”
Unlike other guides, you do not need to give out your email address or pay to get a copy. You can download it, view it, and share it with friends by going to http://www.aviisha.com/new/ebook.
