The obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and type 2 diabetes are prevalent medical conditions, morbidity and mortality associated with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular significant. Research indicates that the prevalence of OSA is increased in diabetic patients compared with patients with normal glucose levels, and that OSA is independently associated with type 2 diabetes. Additional research suggests that effective treatment of OSA with continuous positive pressure airway (CPAP) improves insulin response in patients with OSA diabetic and non-diabetic. ResMed is conducting a clinical study to evaluate the impact of CPAP therapy on glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes and OSA. The OSA patients will be randomized to one of two groups. CPAP treatment with a group or a group without treatment. Patients will be followed for 6 months, collecting several laboratory tests to assess glycemic control.

Worlds Best Medical Care?
Many Americans are under the delusion that we have the best health care system in the world, as President Bush sees it, or provide the best medical care in the world, as Rudolph Giuliani declared last week. That may be true at many top medical centers. But the disturbing truth is that this country lags well behind other advanced nations in delivering timely and effective care
