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 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
  •     Diagnosing
  •     Treatment
  •     Tips for Adjusting to CPAP and APAP
  •     Statistics

 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 www.aviisha.com/new/ebook.
