To increase the rate of diagnosis, Philips hosted the Sleep Apnea Forum to educate healthcare professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of OSA, reports Malaya.

In the 2017 Philips’ Unfiltered Sleep: A Global Prioritization Puzzle , an international survey which looked at how people across the globe perceive, prioritize and prepare for sleep, more than 8 in 10 adults (84%) say that a variety of activities take precedence over a good night’s sleep.

Beyond lifestyle habits, one of the most common causes of poor sleep quality is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a condition that disrupts the sleep cycle and affects one’s energy, intellectual performance and long-term health.
