Truck Drivers Sleep Apnea Program
Obstructive sleep apnea can be a sensitive subject among truck drivers, especially as it is estimated that around 28% of all truck drivers suffer from sleep apnea.
To help you combat obstructive sleep apnea as an independent truck driver or as a driver for a transportation company, ApneaMed has developed low-cost solutions for truck drivers.
Working With ApneaMed
ApneaMed has a program to work with individual truck drivers as well as trucking companies. We provide a home sleep test for diagnosing sleep apnea. The test is easy to use, provides quick results, and is significantly more cost-effective than traditional sleep studies.
Along with our effective home sleep test, we also offer sleep apnea treatment in the form of our AutoPAP device, which is extremely effective in treating sleep apnea. The device delivers low pressured air during the initial stages of sleep and gradually adjusts the air pressure as you reach deeper levels of sleep. An AutoPAP device allows the user to ease into sleep and remain asleep more easily than other sleep apnea devices.
ApneaMed Works With Independent Truck Drivers
If you are a truck driver interested in being tested for sleep apnea, ApneaMed provides a home sleep test designed for diagnosing sleep apnea.
This test is approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT). It is far more affordable than a traditional sleep study and takes significantly less time. Drivers who require testing and treatment for sleep apnea can order our test which comes directly to their home. The unit provides comprehensive screening for sleep apnea. The results are reviewed by an ApneaMed board-certified sleep physician who is qualified to diagnose your sleep disorder.
ApneaMed also works with truck drivers diagnosed with sleep apnea to find the right device to treat your symptoms. We also provide a $100 discount for purchasing your AutoPAP device when you use an ApneaMed home sleep test.
When it comes time to renew your CDL, you will need to show compliance with sleep apnea treatment. Our device uses Bluetooth to send reports to your mobile device. These reports show the use of your AutoPAP device and verify your compliance. This allows truck drivers to easily prove they have been treating their obstructive sleep apnea so it does not interfere with their driving.
Truck Drivers Save Money and Time By Screening For Sleep Apnea With ApneaMed
While some trucking companies are providing sleep testing and treatment as a benefit for their drivers, some truck drivers are left on their own to find appropriate sleep apnea testing.
In most cases, ApneaMed is able to reduce screening and treatment costs even further for individual truck drivers, allowing you to be tested quickly and affordably. Contact us to learn more about our truck driver partnership program.
