National Sleep Survey to Launch on The Dr. Oz Show on October 20th
This post was written in partnership with ResMed. All opinions are mine.
Have you ever had a hard time falling asleep at night and woken up the next morning completely exhausted? Do you suffer from sleep apnea? My mom and dad both do and it is not only scary and dangerous, but can lead to exhaustion and health problems. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 60% of Americans are not meeting their sleep needs. ResMed (NYSE: RMD), the global leader in medical devices and digital connected care for the diagnosis, treatment and management of sleep apnea, is teaming up with “The Dr. Oz Show” to launch a campaign to foster better publish understanding of sleep health. You won’t want to miss this on “The Dr. Oz Show” on Thursday, October 20th at 1 pm EST!
Dr. Oz Show viewers will have the opportunity to enroll in a national sleep survey and be eligible to receive a free S+ by ResMed, the world’s first non-contact sleep tracker and smartphone app designed to help people track, better understand and improve their sleep. ResMed and “The Dr Oz Show” will use sleep data anonymously collected from the show’s registered S+ users to determine, for the first time, America’s overall “Sleep Score.”
To demonstrate how the S+ by ResMed determines sleep scores, several Dr. Oz Show viewers have been provided with the S+ and asked to log their sleep scores, which will range between zero and 100. 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 viewers on the October 20 broadcast.
As part of this campaign, ResMed will also be giving away 1,000 of its award-winning S+ sleep monitors and more than 20,000 viewers will also be able to participate and purchase an S+ by ResMed for only $50 (a $79.99 discount from the manufacturer’s suggested retail price), by redeeming a code through www.doctoroz.com.
Viewers that enroll in the survey will also be entered to win a dream vacation to the award-winning Six Senses Zil Pasyon Resort & Spa on private Felicite island in the Seychelles.
