In Action: the long and short of it

The Sivertsen study showed that drivers with untreated sleep apnea were 1.6 times more likely to go out on workers’ comp and 1.9 times more likely to be forced out of work on early retirement. Another mega-study (Sassani, 2004) showed that for every $1 spent on sleep apnea testing and treatment, $3.49 will be saved in reduced collision costs.
