Safety agencies want truck drivers tested for sleep apnea

A rule proposed in March by two federal safety agencies would require commercial truck drivers and certain railroad workers in Oklahoma and around the country to be tested for obstructive sleep apnea. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Federal Railroad Administration hope that the measure will reduce the number of accidents caused by fatigue, but several members of the public who submitted comments about the proposal were concerned about the costs of the testing.

Radiologists frequently miss hernias

Oklahoma residents could have a hernia even if they do not have an obvious bulge in their lower abdomen. Occult hernias that cannot be seen with the naked eye can be very difficult to diagnose, even with advanced imaging techniques.

Drivers over 50 in Oklahoma and throughout the United States may make car safety technology a priority in the years ahead based on a survey from the MIT AgeLab and the insurance company the Hartford. According to their study, among drivers older than 50 who were going to purchase a new vehicle in the next two years, 75 percent planned to make safety technology a top priority. This is in contrast to two years ago when only around a third of drivers in the same age group had the same priority.
