The Edward Sleep Center A.W.A.K.E. (Alert, Well And Keeping Energetic) support group will host first vendor fair from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Edward Sleep Center, 27555 Diehl Road in Warrenville.

Sleep medicine vendors will be present to provide information about and offer demonstrations of what’s new in the field. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

Sleep apnea patients, family members, physicians and allied health staff are invited to learn about new continuous positive airway pressure equipment, masks and other accessories. Free CPAP machine pressure checks will also be offered.

The American Sleep Apnea Association defines sleep apnea as an involuntary cessation of breathing during sleep. People diagnosed with sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during sleep, often for a minute or longer. Untreated, sleep apnea can have serious consequences: high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, increased risk for work related and motor vehicle accidents caused by drowsy driving, type 2 diabetes and depression.
