A Discussion of the Impact of Sleep Apnea on our Health
David Bishop
Are you foggy in the morning and have a hard time focusing during the day even after you got a “solid 8 hours of sleep”? These may be some key signs of a possible sleep disorder. We all look forward to getting some rest at the end of the night. But for some people, sleep isn’t always as restorative as it should be. In this presentation, we will discuss the evolving concept of society’s view on sleep and the resulting impact on the pursuit of “getting a solid 8 hours of sleep”. We will delve more deeply into a particular sleep disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and its impacts on a variety of illnesses:
· Stroke
