Many people including drivers have OSA and don’t
realise it. Obstructive Sleep apnoea is more common in men
aged 30 - 65 years, though it can occur in all age groups.
It affects an estimated 4% of males and 2% of females worldwide.
In South Africa it is thought to be considerably higher
in specific groups and occupations were the consequences
can be fatal or lead to serious injury if left undiagnosed
Sleep Diagnostics is currently screening freight
company drivers to determine the prevalence of OSA amongst
professional drivers companies. A number of the largest
South African freight companies have commissioned these
studies. If you would like more information or details on
