In this episode, Ayesha talked about the FDA clearance of a new at-home sleep apnea test developed by Belgium-based scale-up Sunrise. The wireless, AI-powered device is placed on a user’s chin, making it non-invasive and easy to use. The test has been clinically validated against traditional polysomnography testing and can help provide an accurate sleep apnea diagnosis. Hear more about the device in this episode.
Ayesha also talked about the teaming up of basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the Bristol Myers Squibb/Pfizer Alliance for a new ad campaign to help raise awareness about atrial fibrillation (AFib). The basketball Hall of Famer was diagnosed with the condition and in a video for the campaign, he describes how he initially dismissed his symptoms. He encourages others to learn from his experience and seek medical attention as soon as any symptoms appear. February is also American Heart Month, which is marked every year to help promote awareness about cardiovascular health.
