ResMed, Dr. Oz determine America’s ‘sleep score’

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

SAN DIEGO – ResMed is teaming up with “The Dr. Oz Show” to launch a campaign to foster better public understanding of sleep health. As part of the campaign, which kicks off on the Oct. 20 show, viewers will have the opportunity to enroll in a national sleep survey and be eligible to receive a free S+ sleep monitoring device. ResMed will give away 1,000 of the devices, which help people track, better understand and improve their sleep. ResMed and Dr. Oz will use the data collected from the survey to determine America’s overall “sleep score.” “Sleep is the most underappreciated health crisis in America,” said Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of “The Dr. Oz Show.” “In our surveys, 42% of respondents sleep less than six hours a night. This partnership with ResMed is a great way for us to assess the sleep habits of our nation.” To demonstrate how the S+ determines sleep scores, several viewers have been provided with the device and asked to log their sleep scores. Dr. Michael Breus, a clinical psychologist, diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and member of “The Dr. Oz Show’s” clinical advisory board, will reveal the sleep scores of each of these views on the Oct. 20 show.
