Editorial Policy

At SleepApnea.org, we are committed to providing information and resources for people with sleep apnea. Our overarching goal is to help readers understand this medical condition and its potential impacts on daily life.

Sleep apnea is a complex topic, so our writers and editors take measures to ensure the content on this site is accurate, up to date, and bias-free. Each page undergoes a rigorous review process that includes input from licensed medical professionals, and we continually re-evaluate our guides to account for recent research and developments in the field of sleep science.

Sourcing

We exclusively use reputable, data-based sources for our medical reports and product guides. In order to be fully transparent, we cite each source. These sources include:

  • Peer-reviewed studies published in academic journals
  • Official reports from government agencies
  • Data derived from collegiate-level research
  • Information from legitimate medical organizations 

Our Team

Each member of our writing and editorial team brings years of experience and expertise to the content we publish. We also rely on invaluable feedback from our medical expert panel, which includes licensed physicians, psychologists, physical therapists, and sleep scientists — all with a professional background related to the study and treatment of sleep apnea.

All new content follows the same creation process. After thoroughly researching the topic at hand, a writer will compose a draft and hand it off to the editorial team. One of our medical panelists also reviews the draft prior to publication. The original writer and medical reviewer are listed in the bylines of each guide.

Product Recommendations

Our product recommendations are based on rigorous research and analysis. The SleepApnea.org testing team also personally evaluates over-the-counter products such as anti-snoring mouthguards and pillows. We assign ratings to each product based on different performance areas, resulting in a final overall score we use to determine our top product picks. Due to prescription limitations, we do not test CPAP machines or masks firsthand. Recommendations for these products are based on verified owner reviews.

Our testing team consists of experienced sleep experts who have collectively evaluated hundreds of individual sleep products. We never recommend a product without fully vetting it for quality and performance. The top picks featured in our guides may periodically change as we test new products and weigh them against existing entries.
