  • 1. EUROSLEEP & Nova Specialty Surgery Join Hands to Conduct Research Study on Sleep Disorders in India *Initiates a National Level Study on World Sleep Day* MUMBAI  –  14th  March  2013  –  EUROSLEEP,  a  network  of   ENT  clinics  from  Norway  and a world leader  in  the  management  and  treatment  of  snoring  &  sleep   apnea   has   joined  hands  with  Nova Specialty Surgery,  a  leading  chain   of  centers  in  India  offering  specialty  surgeries  to  conduct a “Research Study  On Sleep  Related  Disorders”  on  the  sample  consisting  of  the  Indian  population.  Eurosleep  is  the  largest integrated  center  for  sleep  disorders  in  Europe.  Nova  is  proud  to  announce  its  association with Eurosleep for  the  diagnosis  and  management  of  sleep  disorders.  Sleep  disorders  are  a  new  area of interest globally, as studies have shown that more and more lifestyle diseases are attributable to sleep disorders. Dr.  Ashim  Desai,  Senior  Consultant,  ENT  at  Nova  Specialty  Surgery,  Mumbai  said,  “Although there  is  a  lot of global data, till  now  there has been  no  comprehensive India specific data  available for   the  Indian  population.  Therefore  the  need   of  the   hour  is  to   conduct  research   studies  in  this area.  The  association of Nova  and Eurosleep spread over  a large  geographic area is ideally suited to conduct research into the demographics, causes and management of sleep disorders.” “Globally  validated  set  protocols  are  being  instituted  at  all  centers.  Nova’s  involvement  in  this research  aims  to  achieve  complete  online  data  integration,  in  order  to  generate  meaningful insights  from  the  collected  data  for  the  Indian  population”,  added  Dr.  Magne  Tvinnereim, Founder and Global CEO, Eurosleep. Speaking  on  the  occasion,  Suresh  Soni,  Chairman  and  CEO  of  Nova  Specialty  Surgery, commented,“  We  are  delighted  with  our  association  with  Eurosleep.  This  partnership  will  prove beneficial to both parties in terms of effective health management  and knowledge building.” Dr.  Mahesh  Reddy,   co­founder  of  Nova  Specialty  Surgery  said,  “With  this  association, Nova­Eurosleep  Sleep  Clinics  have  become  the  largest  provider  of  diagnostic  and  therapeutic modalities  for  the  comprehensive  study  and  management  of  sleep­related  disorders  in  the country. It  is  established  simultaneously  at  five  of  our  of  India  centers  located  in  Mumbai,  New  Delhi,

Eurosleep is also going to implemented at our Chennai, Pune, Kanpur and Jaipur centers shortly. “As  a  matter  of  fact,  almost  15%  of  the  adult  population  in  Asian  countries  suffer  from  sleep related  disorders.  However,  there  is  no  comprehensive  India­specific  data.  These  problems  can give  rise  to  several  psychological  and  physiological  changes,  besides  increasing  the  risk  of developing  hypertension,  type  II  diabetes  and   an   increased  body  weight,”  said  Mr.  Mohan  Nair, CEO, Eurosleep Asia. “Over  the  last  year  we  have  been  strengthening  Eurosleep  operations  in  India  by  closely working with  specialized  clinics  and  by  focusing  on  spreading  the  technological  know­hows  and advancements.  We  are  extremely  hopeful  that  this tie­up will facilitate research  and findings  on  the Indian audience on sleep related disorders,” added Mr. Mohan Nair, CEO, Eurosleep Asia. In  fact,  sleep   apnea   is   not  just  a  problem  of   the  elderly  population  as  it  affects  children  as  well. Consequences  of  untreated  obstructive  sleep  apnea  among  children   includes   failure  to  thrive,  enuresis, attention­deficit  disorder,  behavior  problems,  poor  academic  performance,  and  cardiopulmonary   disease. The  most  common  etiology  of  obstructive  sleep  apnea  is  adenotonsillar  hypertrophy.  Clinical  diagnosis  of obstructive  sleep  apnea  is  reliable;  however,  the  gold  standard  evaluation  is  overnight  polysomnography. Adenotonsillectomy  is  curative  in  most  patients.  The   treatment  includes  use  of continuous  positive airway pressure and weight loss in obese children. About EUROSLEEP EUROSLEEP  is a world leader  in the  management and treatment  of snoring &  sleep  apnea and has to  its credit  the  largest  number  of patients  diagnosed  and treated till  date. Eurosleep is a network of  ENT clinics from  Norway­Bergen,   United  Kingdom,  Aschaffenburg,  Bensheim,  Berlin,  Flensburg,  Gottingen, Hamburg,  Hamburg­Suderelbe,  Koblenz,  Munich,  Offenbach,  Regensburg  and  Soltau.  Eurosleep  is dedicated  to  provide  complete  solutions  for  sleep  related  breathing  disorders  and   aims  to   enhance  quality of  life  and  help  patients  obtain  good  health.   Eurosleep  is  led  by  Dr.  Magne Tvinnereim, considered as  the father  of  modern  sleep  surgeries  who  has  performed  over  15000  CAUP  procedures   and  30000  sleep studies. 1.
