In July 2015, Centegra Health System launched a program designed to identify patients with this obstructive sleep apnea and schedule them for a sleep study prior to leaving the hospital.

“Undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea can make certain existing health conditions worse,” said Andrea Ramberg, BA, RPSGT, CCSH, Centegra Sleep Health Navigator who helped launch the program and continues to oversee it. “The good news is, it can be prevented in almost every case.”
