BOSTON, Feb. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Governors nationwide have begun issuing Proclamations to bring awareness to the condition known as "Sleep Apnea," which 95% of Americans who have it…don't even know they have. Rather, partners routinely find themselves telling their loved one to "stop snoring," when in fact that person could be dying right in front of them.
In just the last several months, twelve United States Governors have issued Sleep Apnea Awareness Proclamations following the passing of Helen Marie Bousquet in a Methuen, Massachusetts hospital. Her website is www.helenbousquet.com. The loss has caused an outpouring of support from politicians nationwide.
The American Sleep Apnea Association website provides information about condition at www.sleepapnea.org.
All fifty governors have been approached to issue Sleep Apnea Proclamations, to date, Proclamations have been received by Governor Dr. John Kitzhaber of Oregon, Govenor Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, Governor Pat Quinn of Illinois, Governor Bill Haslam of Tennessee, Governor Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, Governor Paul LePage of Maine, Governor Pat McCrory of North Carolina, Governor Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri, Governor Susana Martinez of New Mexico, and Governor Dave Heineman of Nebraska.
Only three Governors have flat out refused to issue Proclamations, or any other kind of public support for the campaign to bring attention to the condition. They are, Governor Steve Bullock of Montana, Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, and Governor Gary Herbert of the state of Utah.
Thirty five requests from the remaining states are being awaited, though the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott, has indicated that he intended to become the next state to issue the awareness of the condition.
H Infinity Books will be releasing a book entitled "Common Cents: How Steward Health Care Changed My Life, and Ended My Mothers," and it will be released in June 2014. It will describe the condition, and discuss Stryker Products, Steward Health Care System of Massachusetts, Cerberus Capital Management, and The LeapFrog Group, a hospital rating organization that rates hospitals based on hospital self-answered questionnaires.
The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety also recently wrote an article recently, which can be viewed at http://ppahs.org/2013/06/10/womans-death-after-knee-surgery-calls-attention-to-need-for-better-monitoring/
