Philips to set up sleep disorder management centres at Saudi German hospitals

The centres will cater to Saudi patients suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Philips will establish Sleep Disorders Management centres at Saudi German Hospital Group facilities in Saudi Arabia to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Through an agreement signed between Philips and the healthcare group, the technology company will provide several sleep disorder centres within Saudi German Health Hospitals in the kingdom.

Patients spend a night in the Sleep Center so their sleep pattern can be observed. Those with positive Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are offered Philips Positive Airway Therapy devices that help to manage OSA.

Philips says it will offer a follow-up procedure to ensure that patients comply with the recommended treatment and health guidelines.

OSA is a common but under-diagnosed disease worldwide. With the advent of a global pandemic causing personal and professional strain on the lives of Saudi citizens and residents, a study in KSA suggests that one out of ten adult middle-aged men carry a high risk of OSA.

“The cumulative long-term effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders have been associated with a wide range of deleterious health consequences including an increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack, and stroke,” said Eng. Mohamed Sindi, CEO of Philips Healthcare Saudi Arabia.

“Our strategic partnership with Middle East Healthcare Company for sleep disorder management services will bring state of the art Philips solutions to the KSA region and improve the overall quality of the patients leading to better lives,” he added.
