Partnering with healthcare professionals to deliver excellent patient care

It’s estimated that 6 million Canadians suffer from OSA. It’s also estimated that 80% of Moderate to Severe cases of OSA are undiagnosed. If left untreated, OSA has been linked to long-term health risks, including heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and hypertension.

We make it easy for referring healthcare professionals through the entire process diagnosing and treating patients with OSA. Here’s how it works:
