Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
Fusion Sleep, the leading provider of Transportation Sleep Medicine solutions, announced today that the Company and its Sleep4Safety® for Commercial Trucking solution will be featured on Extreme Truckers Show™, September 15, 2011, 10:30PM EST. Extreme Truckers Show™ is the largest web-based radio show devoted to truckers and the trucking industry and is dedicated to providing current topic debate, relevant product information, and technical savvy along with popular entertainment.
Dr. Jeffrey Durmer Chief Medical Officer of Fusion Sleep and Allen Herndon professional truck driver with Heartland Express will be interviewed by the show’s host Eric Stuart regarding the impact of sleep apnea on the health and livelihood of professional truck drivers.
“Fusion Sleep appreciates the opportunity to be featured on Extreme Truckers Show™, and I am especially honored to share the interview with Allen Herndon, a driver in our Sleep4Safety® program, who has made the commitment to not only treat sleep apnea but to focus on his overall health in a very demanding profession,“ said Dr. Durmer of Fusion Sleep’s invitation to participate on Extreme Truckers Show™. “It is my goal to share that an obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) diagnosis does not have to be a career-breaker; that keeping medically qualified to drive can be a simple, automated process and that OSA treatment results in significant benefits to overall health.“
Mr. Allen Herndon, professional truck driver of over 20 years, will be joining Dr. Durmer on Extreme Truckers Show™ to share the driver reality of living with a sleep disorder. Mr. Herndon’s goal is to communicate to drivers that treatment and a healthy lifestyle not only impact a driver’s livelihood but that there is much more at stake. “Good health goes way beyond keeping my job; when I look at my grandbaby and know that taking care of myself keeps me around for her, it’s all worth it. If I can help just one driver with my story, I’m going to tell it.”
