First of three sleep apnea listening sessions held

Sleep apnea is often treated with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.

The first of three listening sessions on sleep apnea was convened in Washington, D.C., Thursday, May 12 by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety and Federal Railroad administrations.

Overdrive Senior Editor Todd Dills writes:

“Commenters in large part reflected the range of views on apnea, from skepticism about whether a regulation of the condition was even justified to a call for due consideration of the livelihoods of affected drivers throughout the supply chain.”
