Trinity Health offers employers specialized screening and testing services to determine if an employee may or may not have sleep apnea.
Undiagnosed sleep apnea may cause excessive daytime sleepiness and trouble concentrating at work, potentially leading to serious health problems over time. A large number of patients with sleep apnea are undiagnosed and untreated. Trinity Health Occupational Medicine can help avoid productivity loss resulting from lack of sleep.
Having access to sleep apnea screening and testing can also reduce employer's liability expenses from automotive accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that at least 100,000 police-reported crashes each year are the direct result of driver fatigue. (NSF 2002 Sleep in America poll)
Sleep apnea testing can be conducted at our Minot clinic.
