Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
On February 1, leading mattress delivery company, Online Bed Quilt, comments on an article published by Market Wire describing former NFL star Warren Sapp’s new video campaign raising awareness for sleep apnea.
According to the article published on Market Wire, former NFL Super Bowl XXXVII Champion and defenseman Warren Sapp partnered with sleep apnea expert and bioengineer Dr. Jonathan Greenburg to raise awareness about obstructive sleep apnea and urge people to get tested. Titled the Sleep Apnea Prevention Project (SAPP), the campaign launched on Jan. 30 with a video documenting Sapp as he gets tested for sleep apnea.
The article said Sapp was tested and diagnosed with sleep apnea in early January. The video is a way for viewers to experience what it’s like living with this disorder and how even a legendary athlete can suffer from sleep apnea. The video chronicles Sapp’s journey to find out the root cause of his sleep apnea and what treatments he can pursue.
The article said the video sends a medical message to the world, revealing the root cause of snoring and sleep apnea. “It illustrates how snoring, a warning sign of a more serious medical issue, is closely linked to Sleep Apnea,” the article said. “It also explains how untreated sleep apnea leads to serious health risks like stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, Alzheimer's and cancer.”
The article said approximately over 100 million people suffer from sleep apnea and that 80 percent are undiagnosed. The Sleep Apnea Prevention Project said it hopes to detect symptoms early and promote the message that treatment of sleep apnea can save lives.
Justin Maas, a representative from [mattress delivery company Online Bed Quilt, said, “Sleep apnea is a severe disorder, which can disrupt sleep and can even stop someone from breathing during the night,” Maas said. “It’s really important to get tested for these obstructive sleep disorders, so doctors can determine treatment.”
He said while doctors might suggest treatments including surgery or oral tools, updating your sleep products could also help. “If you’re sleeping on a hard mattress or pillow, it might make your sleep apnea worse because your body is unaligned,” Maas said. “People suffering from sleep disorders should always look to improving their bed products. A new mattress can increase comfort and allow better air circulation in the lungs.”
