The Centers for Disease Control finds that more than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. While the abundance of distractions in today’s world are major contributors to this epidemic, estimates suggest that 20% of the population actually suffers from a sleep disorder.
Why does it matter? Sleeping heals damaged cells and allows us to process the information our brains take in throughout the day. Without a good night of sleep, we run the risk of fatigue, irritability, headaches, and trouble concentrating. Some symptoms may seem manageable, but there’s no reason you should have to suffer through the challenges that arise from sleep disorders.
But how do you know if your difficulty sleeping comes from a sleep disorder, and not just from watching TV before bed? The Sleep Disorders Center at Cooper University Health Care is offering a free webinar at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday December 6. Learn about signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and options for treatment to get a full night of sleep.
This webinar will feature Dr. Jonathan E. Kass and Dr. Donald Solomon. Dr. Kass is board-certified in pulmonary medicine; sleep medicine, and critical care medicine. Dr. Solomon is a pediatric otolaryngologist with experience in pediatric ear, nose, and throat conditions that include snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, and various others.
The Sleep Disorders Center at Cooper is one of the only two university-level sleep disorders centers in South Jersey. Cooper’s multidisciplinary team diagnoses and treats snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, and offers both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, helping you get a good night’s sleep.
