Consider the following statistics:
One third of a human lifespan is spent in sleep.
Sleep kills more people in road traffic accidents than alcohol.
Sleep was responsible for disasters such as Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and Challenger Space Shuttle explosion.
Common sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea are routinely associated with other systemic diseases like uncontrolled hypertension and morbid obesity.
However, sleep is still one of the poorly understood physiological phenomenon and sleep medicine is still a nascent and evolving specialty. Very few specialists exist to treat sleep disorders exclusively and most of the disease burden is taken up by general physicians, respiratory physicians, neurologists and psychiatrists. This course by Dr. Sankaran, Consultant sleep physician in Nelson, New Zealand caters to that group who routinely encounter patients who have sleep disorders disease and patients who would benefit from knowledge of sleep disorders.
