Millions of Americans across the nation suffer from sleep disorders, but the limited number of board-certified sleep specialists and accredited sleep centers prevent many from obtaining the treatment they need. Because insufficient sleep can increase the risk of numerous chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, it is paramount that patients are able to see sleep specialists in a timely manner. There is no way for few sleep centers to provide services to a disproportionate amount of patients, thus Somnology IDTF offers a solution.
