We're here to help
We at the American Sleep Apnea Association know that the road to successful treatment of sleep apnea comes sooner and more smoothly if you can benefit from the experience of those who came before you.
In addition to our web site and other resources such as our newsletter Wake-up Call, publications, and videos, we provide patient support in several forms:
We have A.W.A.K.E. education and support groups all over the country. New ones are starting up all the time.
Or try one of these options:
- We maintain the Apnea Support Forum, where patients answer each other’s questions or search by category to learn about situations similar to theirs. Read as others describe, in their own words, the tricks that have helped them make their treatment devices more comfortable, how they’ve handled issues with insurance or medical suppliers, and more. With 3,000 daily visitors, the forum is a uniquely valuable resource. Check it out here.
- If you click to “like” us on Facebook, you can continue to access the latest information about sleep apnea.
- In partnership with Truckers for a Cause, we sponsor a virtual A.W.A.K.E. group that meets via conference call every other month and is open to everyone.
