ButDocImareallygreatsleeper Photo Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) doesn't get the media coverage heart disease or cancer gets,
but sleep labs are popping up all over the country, and are among the busiest of the
diagnostic facilities. It's a serious condition, and more common than you'd think.

It's a sneaky business - if you've got it, chances are you can sleep any time,
anywhere - so why would you think you have a sleep disorder? Canny physicians look
past the obvious assumptions of depression and hormone imbalance and send their patients
off to the lab despite their protests of perfect sleep competence, but misdiagnosis is
unfortunately not uncommon.

Take a little tour with the hoseheads, and see if you know anyone who qualifies!
