Sleep apnea is a condition that affects at least 7 million Canadians. It can make you feel tired during the day even though it seems like you should've slept enough. It can also increase risk for diseases because of how the condition interrupts your breathing during sleep.

The question of whether this new technology is better than traditional technologies will often depend on the patient.
According to the Public Health Agency of Canada's Sleep Apnea Rapid Response Questionnaire, approximately 858,900 Canadians over the age of 18 have been diagnosed with sleep apnea.
