  • Another Opportunity for Sleep Field Growth

    I read an interesting article about how the Affordable Care Act will be covering weight loss coaching as part of the mandatory coverage starting in 2014. The article goes on to talk about the fact that physicians will not be able to do this counseling due to their current work load. They are instead turning to health and wellness coaches ...

  • The Latest Sleep Research

    We look at sleep studies and we use CPAP but how many of us actually read the new research out there? We have great new ways of marketing our labs by using this research. From the studies that associate sleep apnea with new stroke patients and recently performed ablations to the research on changes in EEG associated with ADHD, there is always ...

  • Do We Help Keep People Healthy or Treat Disease?

    With the increase in unemployment here, we have seen more people refuse studies. Patients don't want to spend money on as many tests and do not have the money for their new higher deductibles. But people are spending more on things to help keep them healthy.It made me think that maybe we need to start calling sleep studies preventative medicine. ...

  • Have You Had Any?

    I came to work today thinking it was going to be a normal day.  I got up, dressed, drove my teenager to school because he thinks the bus is evil, and arrived at work.  I currently run a sleep lab and usually work days.  This day just went everywhere in a big hurry.  For one thing it was the day when I was doing my first ...
