Thursday, February 12, 2015

To raise awareness for oral appliance therapy as an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, the AADSM launched a consumer media blitz and social media campaign, featuring survey findings on the effect of snoring on bed partners’ sleep and the different treatment options available. A few interesting statistics from the report include:

- Forty percent of women claim snoring in the opposite sex is a turn-off.
- One in five Americans say a snoring partner could drive them out of bed.
- More than a quarter of Americans confessed that a snoring bed partner makes them annoyed or angry.
- 45 percent of women said they worry about the health of their bed partner when they snore.
- Single adults surveyed were twice as likely to prefer oral appliance therapy to CPAP for their bed partner.
