Sleep Apnea and the Truck Driver  Proactive Solutions for Drivers and Motor Carriers to Limit Delays in Medical Certification

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at 11am Central

This 1-hour webinar will introduce both drivers and motor carriers to the risks associated with sleep apnea, and the reasons and methods used in the diagnosis and management of this condition.  Most importantly, we will introduce you to not only the regulation/guidance but how medical examiners make their decisions.  Lastly, we will provide possible solutions for both driver’s and motor carriers that will help to limit delays with this very confusing and frustrating medical problem. 

Webinar discussion topics will include:

  • What is sleep apnea and how does it affect the driver?
  • Does guidance still exist even after the FMCSA pulled back on the new sleep apnea rule?
  • What are the risk factors and how is it diagnosed?
  • What kind of treatments are acceptable to the FMCSA and what is required for certification?
  • How medical examiners make decisions regarding sleep apnea.
  • Suggestions for Motor Carriers and Drivers to help limit possible delays in medical certification.
