A digital solution for sleep disorders

13% of Indians are under the threat of suffering from OSA. The diagnosis and management of this condition is rapidly evolving with introduction of digital solutions.

 

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a disorder in which a person stops breathing during the night, perhaps hundreds of times. These gaps in breathing are called apneas. The disorder occurs when tissues in the upper throat collapse at different times during sleep, thereby blocking the passage of air. It most commonly affects middle-aged and older adults and people who are overweight.

According to a recent study, 13% of Indians are under the threat of suffering from OSA. Its is increasingly common disorder, with approx. 6 million adults in India have this but 80% remain undiagnosed and untreated. The prevalence in India is about 24 per cent of men (mostly over 40 years) and nine per cent of women. The diagnosis and management of this condition is rapidly evolving and includes the patient using a CPAP machine to facilitate removal of obstructions to breathing, and surgery
