If you look at the numbers, about 30 million people only in the US suffer from sleep apnea; 80% of them are undiagnosed and untreated so they carry this disease for many, many years and sleep apnea is often referred to as the silent killer.” – Amir Reuveny

Power Quotes From The Show

'Sleep apnea is referred to as 'the silent killer.' It is one of the most common, undiagnosed sleep disorders that exists. About 30 million people in the US suffer from sleep apnea, 80% are undiagnosed.' - Amir Reuveny of @WesperhealthClick To Tweet

The Impact of Poor Sleep Quality

“We all know today that lack of quality sleep can affect almost every aspect of your life. I know for me if I don't get a good night's sleep, I feel terrible the next day. Imagine what that is like for people to suffer from not enough quality sleep every night; it's devastating and it can lead to health issues like diabetes, heart attacks; you name it. Lack of quality sleep is really bad for your health.” – Amir Reuveny

Creating a Sleep Action Plan with Wesper

“After we told my father that he has sleep apnea, I was really anxious about what that means for me as well and whether or not I should wear a CPAP and about the next steps. This is also when we started moving our focus on the patch and sensing technology alone to more of a platform to help people not only get their results in an easy and seamless way but also an action plan and start implementing it with our support at Wesper.” – Amir Reuveny

Treating The Two Types of Sleep Apnea

“Within sleep apnea, you have two main types; one is central sleep apnea and the other is obstructed sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea is basically your brain controls and stops providing commands to your lungs to breathe during the night but this is less common – only 10-15% of the cases. The more common sleep apnea is obstructed and is caused by the obstruction of your airways. Some causes can be the tongue muscles relax during the night especially if you sleep on your back or the narrowing of the airways sometimes when you gain weight. If you have sleep apnea the important thing is to identify which type so you can treat it specifically.” – Amir Reuveny
