Rehabilitation is a broad and vast area of medical and healthcare field which is concerned with restoring an individual's ability to work and enjoy life as a "normal" (as we all know, normal is a very subjective term in healthcare) and healthy individual. This is typically after he or she has experienced a traumatic experience in their life - be it physical such as accidents and other injuries or mental such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or depression.
But in India, the term "Rehabilitation" is used in a very limited sense - at least by the general public.
Rehamo, in association with Philips India held a Continuing Medical Education session on Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and its effects on daily life.Â
The event was held at Fairfield Marriot Hotel in Rajajinagar, Bangalore on 4th of August 2018.
