Bright Minds on Your Side
To this day, I still remember the confusion, fear, and uncertainty I felt upon discovering that I actually stopped breathing frequently during sleep. I figured it was probably wise to reach out to fellow OSA sufferers for that simple reassurance that sleep apnea is manageable and is not as scary as once thought…
That was how WellAwareSystems was born.
