« Death by Insomnia | Main | Sleep Like Goldilocks or You Might Cut Life Short »

May 19, 2010


Hey Dr. Breus, you're right on the money with this one. And speaking of the money, I think the cost-saving aspects of this study will be a huge asset in making OSA a higher priority issue in society.

Hopefully having Mark Rosekind on the National Transportation Safety Board when he finally gets approved will make a difference in this realm as well.

I'm a teaching assistant for Dr. Dement, and the stories he's shared over the past couple years have made it absolutely clear that sleep-related car accidents are extraordinarily prevalent and often tragic. The fact that many of the people driving the biggest and most dangerous vehicles on our freeways are suffering untreated from OSA surely warrants a wake up call here.

Along with Dr. Dement, we've recently launched a new website that will attempt to raise awareness of these issues, much like you've been doing over the years. Hopefully, as the dangers continue to climb higher in the public consciousness, before too long we can make OSA mostly a worry of the past.

Keep up the great work,

Kevin Morton
