If you have found this forum then you either have sleep apnea or suspect that you do. You have found a place to ask questions and find answers as well as support. However, misdiagnosed sleep apnea is a huge problem, especially if you are a woman. 1 in 5 women have sleep apnea. 9 in 10 women who have sleep apnea do not know it. That's why the new brochure "Women and Sleep Apnea" can be so useful. You can download it to use yourself or to share with another woman you suspect might suffer with undiagnosed sleep apnea. You can also use the flipside to take to your health care provider.

There is a blog with more information about the brochure and a link to download it. Check it out. https://myapnea.org/blog/2017/12/swhr-women-sleep-apnea-tooklit
