I just read an article about judges and jurors who fall asleep. Can you imagine being wrongfully convicted of murder because they weren’t paying attention to all of the evidence? Do you remember last year’s horrific train derailment in New York? (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/may/18/metro-north-sleep-apnea-new-york-derailment) The train’s engineer had sleep apnea. What if you were unlucky and happened to be on that train? That question caused me to think about the seriousness of this condition not only for the person who has it, but for the others that are affected by it.
Let’s see if we can raise the world’s consciousness about the people who affect our lives with this condition … because now, it affects everyone. Please add your ideas below and forward to everyone you care about. Thank you.
What do you think is the most hazardous occupation when combined with Sleep Apnea?
