"Type 2 diabetics and people with hypertension are much more likely to have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) than other people, and as a result should immediately discuss their risk for sleep apnea with a sleep specialist," AASM President M. Safwan Badr, MD, said in statement.
"Diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea from a board-certified sleep medicine physician will promote improvement in these conditions - including improved insulin sensitivity, blood pressure and cholesterol," Dr. Badr said.

American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) President M. Safwan Badr, MD, was recently quoted in a Huffington Post article sharing recommendations on various snoring remedies.
While Dr. Badr was happy to contribute, he was disappointed to see that the statements included in the article did not accurately reflect his opinion of or recommendations for oral appliance therapy.

For AASM President-elect M. Safwan Badr, MD, all of the standards are critically important, but, for him, one is chief among them.
"The most important aspect for me is the identification of the parameters within which these tests are appropriate," he says. "Specifically, the standards will guide us in selecting the right test, for the right patient, under the guidance of the right physician. I am particularly pleased that the OCST accreditation standards require that the designated medical director must be a sleep specialist. This is a major step forward to ensure consistent, high standards in OCST." Badr, who is a professor and chief of the Pulmonary Critical Care and Sleep Medicine Department of Internal Medicine at Harper University Hospital and Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, adds that he has confidence in the data collected during OCST studies, because of advances in portable monitoring technology in the last few years. The revised standards will help to guarantee the data continue to be the best possible. "Strengthening the OCST accreditation standards in areas such as HIPAA compliance and equipment maintenance will ensure that facilities maintain the highest standards in every aspect of testing," he says. Both Fleishman and Badr stressed that the AASM program is not an accreditation program, but a designation program. It is an option for accredited centers to utilize if they so choose to assist them in developing their out of center program. The designation gives the accredited center confidence that these providers can assist the center in providing a good OCST program, Badr explains. "Many sleep centers will continue to implement their own, in-house OCST program. But some sleep centers will find it beneficial to outsource some of their OCST functions to a provider. When selecting a provider for OCST, a sleep center can have confidence in knowing that an approved OCST supplier will provide services that are consistent with OCST accreditation standards," he says. Badr outlined why the voluntary designation is important for accredited centers and sleep medicine in general. "The new designation of Approved OCST Suppliers is important because it ensures that national contractors provide OCST services in accordance with OCST accreditation standards when they contract with sleep centers," he says.
