Insomnia, Snoring, Sleep Apnea

The world and life of a sleep tech

The Internet is the Greatest Bridge Ever Built

I have been in health care for over 20 years. I can honestly say that my patients have never been better informed and neither have I. The ability for new ideas and new research to be shared in an open forum and to allow patients and caregivers to discuss issues and to give each other help has changed how healthier is administers.

There are certain drawbacks like incorrect information being given. But the good out ways the bad. On a weekly basis I receive in emails lists of new research articles that have been published worldwide about sleep. On twitter, face book and linked in I get to discuss issues with fellow technicians about what is going on across the country in practice, legislation and new practices. It allows for a better quality practitioner to go with the more informed patient.

 It also allows for follow up with the patients in an easier way. We can create websites and videos tp help prepare our patients. We can offer help via e mail newsletters.

I can think of no better time to be a health care practitioner then now.
