The High Cost of Sleep Disorders

Sleep disordered breathing due to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is epidemic in the U.S. and most OSA sufferers are undiagnosed and untreated. A potentially life-threatening condition, OSA has established links to high blood pressure, stroke, cardiac disease, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, excessive daytime sleepiness and premature death.

According to the National Institutes of Health, as many as 70 million Americans may be affected by chronic sleep loss and sleep disorders such as OSA, at an annual cost of $16 billion in health care expenses and $50 billion in lost productivity.

Significant Return on Investment

Testing and treating your employee population for OSA is an investment that results in improved health and reduced risk for other more serious diseases associated with untreated OSA. This translates directly to increased productivity, reduced liability and lower healthcare utilization. According to an article in the Harvard Business Review, every dollar invested on wellness programs yields three to six dollars in returns. Outcome studies show measurable savings on healthcare costs, greater productivity, higher morale and reduced attrition.
