Obstructive Sleep Apnea (Saskatchewan, Canada)

The Obstructive Sleep Apnea (Saskatchewan, Canada) PSP was established in 2019 by the Respiratory Research Centre at the University of Saskatchewan.  Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) has a high prevalence in Canada and, despite the prevalence of OSA, it remains an under-diagnosed public health concern. 

The Obstructive Sleep Apnea (Saskatchewan, Canada) PSP Top 10 was published in February 2022.

In recognition of Sleep Week 2022, and especially World Sleep Day on 18th March, the Respiratory Research Centre (RRC) launched 3 animated videos with a focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). These videos were produced with the help of patient partners and LungSask.  During their JLA PSP, the RRC discovered that there were many questions from the public that were already answered but, were not easily accessible to OSA patients and families. The RRC developed these animated shorts in an attempt to close that knowledge gap.
