Abstract

In this review, I analyzed health disparities in the Hispanic/Latino population in the United States, focusing on sleep and respiratory illnesses. To better understand the nature of these health disparities, some of the significant factors analyzed include the demographic structure, access to care, and prevalence of sleep and respiratory illnesses. A major issue I examined in this report is the lack of knowledge regarding sleep and respiratory diseases as a result of the language barrier, underdiagnosis, and lack of health insurance. The sleep and respiratory diseases analyzed are Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Some of the major areas I examined include prevalence, diagnosis, and adherence to medical equipment compared to other ethnic groups. The primary research is based on OSA patient interviews and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) providers. The secondary research is focused on community health studies. This report explores current sleep and respiratory initiatives and their inclusiveness to the Spanish-speaking population.
