MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (April 26, 2016)—For the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic sleep disorders, driving to a doctor’s office or sleep center can be downright dangerous, but thanks to a new online service, these individuals can consult with a board-certified sleep physician from the comfort of their homes simply by visiting an innovative website. Developed by Dr. Joseph Krainin, Singular Sleep is a virtual sleep center offering telemedicine services that include:
- Online consultations with a board certified sleep physician
- Sleep apnea testing that is conducted in the patient’s home
- The most advanced sleep health products available on the market
Sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment are major focuses of the company, given that an estimated 22 million Americans suffer from the disorder but 80 percent of moderate and severe cases are as of yet undiagnosed. However, unlike most sleep health websites, which focus solely on sleep apnea, Singular Sleep offers treatment for the entire spectrum of sleep disorders, along with state-of-the-art products.
“We established Singular Sleep to help empower people to take control of their health by getting better sleep,” says the company’s founder, Joseph Krainin, MD, a board certified neurologist and sleep physician who envisions the website as a comprehensive online source for sleep health.
Currently affiliated with Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, Dr. Krainin received his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and has been in practice for 11 years. His previous experience includes serving as the Medical Director of a Michigan State University-affiliated sleep center, and Director of Medical Services for the Orlando Magic, where he helped professional athletes overcome sleep disorders and other health conditions.
According to Dr. Krainin, adequate sleep is one of the three cornerstones of good health, along with a healthy diet and regular exercise. He formed Singular Sleep to resolve the chronic sleep issues that affect millions of Americans and are becoming a public health problem linked to:
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Industrial disasters and occupational errors
- Increased risk of acquiring chronic diseases like heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, depression, and obesity
- Increased chance of developing cancer
- Higher risk of earlier death
- Presenteeism and reduced workplace productivity
- Lower quality of life
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that more than a quarter of the U.S. population complains of not getting enough sleep and that nearly 10 percent say they experience chronic insomnia. Rather than being a luxury, sufficient sleep is a necessity, as well as a vital building block of good health, the CDC claims.
Headquartered in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, Singular Sleep currently offers online consultations and home sleep testing in 18 states (see complete list below) and is rapidly expanding nationwide. Sleep health products can be purchased and shipped anywhere in the U.S., and most products can also be shipped internationally. Visit Singular Sleep’s website at singularsleep.com.
