Who is NSS?
National Sleep Services is a nationwide fatigue management safety program for transportation workers. We aim to decrease fatigue-related accidents and fatalities by offering transportation companies a low-cost solution that screens, diagnoses and treats obstructive sleep apnea.
Research shows that people with obstructive sleep apnea have a significantly higher risk of crashing a vehicle because of daytime sleepiness, and those with severe sleep apnea are 2 to 3 times more likely to be involved in a crash. NSS’s Fatigue Management protocol addresses and treats this medical condition. Industry leaders who have made NSS’s customizable fatigue management program a part of their corporate wellness program are protecting the interest and safety of their company, workers, and most importantly the general public.
NSS’s Fatigue Management Program Features
- Nationwide network of more than 6,000 sleep specialists who provide portable home sleep test and CPAP device, if needed.
- Portable technology allows transportation workers to test from where they normally sleep, instead of spending money on costly, inconvenient sleep lab testing.
- Compliance coaching by our staff and access to the Philips Respironics Sleep Mapper app to encourage engagement.
- Resupply services facilitated by National Sleep Services.
Our portable home testing device and national network of sleep specialists allow us to provide these services for a fraction of the cost and time of a traditional sleep lab. See it for yourself in our study comparison chart.
Sleep Lab vs. National Sleep Services Portable Study Comparison
NSS is a comprehensive program that offers a cost effective/time sensitive solution for diagnosing and treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition. Millions of people
suffer from OSA, and while it is extremely prevalent, it is largely undiagnosed.
We use a secure, web-based questionnaire to assist in screening candidates for
signs and symptoms of OSA. For those patients that qualify, and with physician
order, we use a portable monitoring system to diagnose whether or not the
patient has OSA. Our goal is to have the study in the patient’s hands for
testing within 48 hours of receiving the order from the physician. NSS will verify insurance and inform patients of applicable co-pays.
NSS utilizes the Homelink referral network to assist with
getting patients set up with their diagnostic study and if necessary, the Auto
titrating CPAP. We understand that adjusting to CPAP therapy can be a challenge,
so we’re committed to coaching patients by offering compliance monitoring. With
proper use, the benefits of using CPAP may be felt by the patient as soon as the
first night of use.
