WellAwareSystems is a resource site for those who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The site is founded by George Porter who was diagnosed with the condition a decade ago when he was still in his thirties.
As a sleep apnea patient, he knows how frustrating the condition can be. You go to sleep early at night hoping to feel recharged the following day. But when morning arrives, you still feel just as drained as the night before; it’s as if you haven’t slept at all.
After years of suffering sleepless nights due to snoring and other discomfort brought by OSA, George’s wife really urged him to see a doctor. After going through a round of nocturnal polysomnography tests where his breathing pattern, brain, lung and heart activity, and blood oxygen levels were monitored during sleep, the verdict was finally in – he has obstructive sleep apnea.
To this day, George still remembers the confusion, fear, and uncertainty he felt upon hearing the diagnosis. It was his first time hearing of the medical term and he admitted to feeling anxious when he found out that he actually stopped breathing for several seconds in his sleep. On the hindsight, he figured it was probably better if he reached out to fellow sufferers back then, even for that simple reassurance that sleep apnea is manageable and is not as scary as he once thought.
And that’s what every member of the WellAwareSystems.com
