It isn’t always easy for drivers to get the sleep disorder diagnosis they need. It’s nonetheless important, both to ensure DOT compliance and help keep drivers safe on the road. Learn what to expect from a telemedicine consult.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Telemedicine Consults?

The following factors play a role in your risk level for developing sleep apnea:

  • Age
  • BMI
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Neck Circumference

Depending on your risk factors, the DOT may require you to get treated in order to maintain your CDL. If you think you’re suffering from sleep apnea, you should get tested either at a driver hub or with an Home Sleep Test. Then you’ll be ready for a consultation with a sleep expert.
