Sleep-Apnea

obstructive sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment

This training program provides the tools you need to identify drivers whose OSA puts them at increased risk for crashes. You’ll also gain an understanding of treatment options and how to properly qualify commercial drivers diagnosed with sleep apnea.

Many studies have shown that Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA, is a significant cause of motor vehicle crashes. Out of a sampling of 593 long-distance truck drivers, 47.1% had fallen asleep at the wheel at least once, and 25.4% within the last year. And, according to recent estimates, nearly one in three commercial drivers suffers from some degree of OSA.

It is estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with 80 percent of the cases of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea undiagnosed.

This course will help explain the guidance issued by the DOT/ FMCSA for examiners to use their judgment to detect, suggest treatment options and provide certification options for commercial drivers who have been identified with OSA.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and their Medical Review Board, have made recommendations and guidelines for mandatory screening. Stay ahead of the curve with our new OSA training course.
