Philips and the World Association of Sleep Medicine join together to raise global awareness of the importance of sleep

Philips joined with the World Association of Sleep Medicine (WASM) as an official sponsor of World Sleep Day 2012, held on Friday, March 16. This year’s theme– ‘Breathe Easily, Sleep Well’ – centered on raising awareness of sleep disorders that affect a person’s breathing, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

“Philips is pleased to partner with the World Association of Sleep Medicine for World Sleep Day 2012 to build awareness and understanding around disorders that affect the quality of sleep, including obstructive sleep apnea,” said Dr. David White, chief medical officer for Philips Home Healthcare Solutions and a professor of sleep medicine at Harvard Medical School. “Philips offers a wide range of sleep-related products and solutions, from diagnostic tools through to patient-centered sleep therapy devices, to enhance the quality of sleep and improve the health and well-being of our customers and patients around the world.”

    I have been living with Sleep Apnea for seearvl year now. I have had two sleep studies because I refused to accept the diagnosis because I’m not overweight. I do have a CPAP but I don’t use if on a regular basis. I found out about a recemt;u formed Raleigh support group and your website while reading the March issue of Boom . I would love to be a part of a support group, but I live in Durham. If there are plans to organize a Durham support group, please let me know.Thank you.Barbara Peele[] Reply:April 12th, 2011 at 6:18 pmThanks for visiting our blog. It is true that not all people with sleep apnea are overweight. We also sponsor a Sleep Apnea Support Group in the Durham area. The next quarterly meeting will be held on April 28th at the Structure House. Click on our News and Education page and scroll down to Triangle Region Sleep Apnea Support Groups to download a flyer for any of the area’s sleep apnea support groups. We hope you can join us.
