  2. Wireless sensor patch for reducing barriers to in-home sleep apnea screening

    SBC: ZANSORS            Topic: NIMHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea. OSA affects an estimated 18-40 million adults and 0.7-3% of all children in the US. OSA results in tiredness, depression and fatigue, and has severalassociated common comorbidities. It is believed that over 80% of OSA remains undiagnosed. Poorer and disadvantaged communities are at higher ris ...
