rate or severe OSA. Specifically:

--For those at-risk of OSA, the ARES Unicorder is worn in the home during

sleep to obtain the information necessary for a physician to diagnose

OSA. The ARES can be conveniently self applied and worn while the

driver is sleeping even in the cabin of a truck. It has been validated

in the largest study ever conducted which compared the accuracy of in-

home vs. laboratory sleep studies.

--ABM has launched a web-based initiative targeted to the needs of the

transportation industry. Drivers can complete the ARES questionnaire

on-line to determine if they are at risk for OSA and order an ARES sleep

study. Study results can be made available online for download by the

driver's primary care, occupational medicine, or sleep medicine

physician.

--The ARES can identify drivers likely to be successfully treated with

oral appliances, an alternative to continuous positive airway pressure

(CPAP) treatment.

"Loud snoring during sleep combined with daytime drowsiness is an indicator of those who may have undiagnosed OSA," stated Dr. Westbrook. "Research suggests that anyone suffering from hypertension, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, or depression should have a sleep study to determine if they have undiagnosed OSA."

The Arguments for Immediate and Widespread OSA Diagnosis and Treatment is Overwhelming

In the commentary, the authors suggest that recent developments have changed the potential legal landscape for those involved in the transportation industry. Specifically:

--Evidence indicates that commercial drivers suffer from a

disproportionately higher prevalence of OSA than is currently being

diagnosed or recognized.

--A Joint Task Force which included representatives from the American

College of Chest Physicians, American College of Occupational and

Environmental Med
