Bruce Zartman, Assistant Vice President of Supply Chain and Perioperative Services at East Alabama Medical Center, does not fit the traditional mold of someone who might suffer from sleep apnea. A healthy, active person who is not overweight, he was shocked when he heard his diagnosis. “I snored loudly all my life,” Zartman says. “My father and brothers all snore and it seemed normal to me. I was not falling asleep at traffic lights or sluggish during the day, which made me think it was not possible that I suffered from sleep apnea.”
