Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a chronic medical condition caused by repeti- tive collapse of the upper airway during sleep. This condition, in turn, can lead to sleep fragmentation and poor sleep quality. Excessive daytime sleepiness, decreased alertness, impaired mood and diminished quality of
life may result from untreated OSA. Other consequences of untreated OSA include increased risk of hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, myocardial infarction and stroke. Mul- tiple other biological processes and organ systems are affected adversely by OSA as well. Untreated OSA can be dangerous, especially for those individuals who work in transportation. Treatment of OSA can yield improvement
in quality of life, reduction in associated medical comorbidities and have a positive economic effect on a population level.
