Sleep apnea is a medical condition that affects most Americans. According to the United States Medical Association, the sleep condition affects more than 18 million adults as per the year 2017. Its prevalence is alarming. This is the reason why Dr. Avi Weisfogel is working hard to ensure people get the best medical treatment. While sleep apnea inhibits sleep among the victims, it also contributes to the occurrence of other chronic illnesses such as stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure coupled up with the heart attack. Despite its prevalence among those who are affected by this condition, there are a few advancements towards finding the solution to this medical illness.
Dr. Weisfogel is the founder of the Dental Sleep Masters Company, based in New Jersey. For the Dental Sleep Masters Company, it is aimed at enabling other health care professionals as well as physicians to learn the various methods in place to assist Americans to get better sleep apnea medical care. The company was founded in 2014 to support Dr. Weisfogel to help other doctors to get education on how to use more than 100 sleep apnea therapy pieces that could go a long way in reducing the number of deaths experienced every year as a result of sleep apnea.
Dr. Weisfogel has a long history of working with sleep apnea patients. When he was new in this field, he founded his New Jersey-based dental platform that served more than 20 patients a day. For all the 20 patients, 12 of them were sleep apnea patients who didn’t know how to get their condition treated.
