stated that the survey will provide a comprehensive look at the impact 
of OSA screening and treatment within the motor carrier community that 
is beyond the information which any one carrier can provide. 
Furthermore, with this data in hand, OOIDA will be able to present a 
better analysis of the information requested by the ANPRM. ATRI
