AWAKE Sleep Apnea Initiative In early 2018, ASAA launched the AWAKE Sleep Apnea initiative to empower patients to accelerate progress for care and treatment of sleep apnea. The initiative report, “Raising Voices for Progress in Treatment and Care,” details the magnitude of human suffering, barriers to diagnosis and treatment, and unmet needs described by people living with sleep apnea and family caregivers. It is based on first-person accounts conveyed at the June 8, 2018 AWAKE Sleep Apnea patient-focused medical product development meeting attended by 465 people (in person and by live webcast) and a Patient & Caregiver Survey that attracted responses from 5,630 adults of all ages from around the country.
