Snoring and sleep apnea is severely underdiagnosed
Living with snoring or sleep apnea can have a huge impact on nearly every aspect of daily life. Patient’s health, energy, and even relationships can all suffer. Let’s end snoring and sleep apnea for good!
SNORING VS SLEEP APNEA
What is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)?
OSA is a common, chronic condition characterized by episodic narrowing and obstruction of the airway during sleep. It is estimated that 90% of OSA is undiagnosed, with patients often experiencing symptoms for many years prior to diagnosis.

What are the symptoms of OSA
Snoring is a common symptom, but there are others. If your patient is presenting with any of the following symptoms, your patient could be suffering from OSA and should be referred to Careica Health for a sleep study.
What are the health risks?
Left untreated, snoring or sleep apnea increases the risk of several serious health conditions.
The good news? Treatment can significantly lower the risk (and it’s very treatable)!
OSA prevalence in comorbid conditions:
30% – 85%
70% – 83%
50% – 80%

What are the different types of sleep studies?
There are three different types of sleep studies—some are done in a sleep lab, some are done at the patient’s home. We offer two different types of sleep studies (level 3 & level 2). Patients sleep in comfort of their own bed, and you get in-depth test results—it’s a win-win!
