Getting to the Heart of Sleep Health: Podcast 2

Cardiovascular Consequences of Inadequate Sleep

Many patients that you see in clinical practice have sleep issues, but they will not share that unless they are prompted about it.

In this podcast leaders in sleep medicine discuss Getting to the Heart of Sleep Health. Drs. Younghoon Kwon, Marie-Pierre St-Onge and Nancy Redeker explore how patients may have multiple symptoms, and they're often accompanied by dissatisfaction with sleep and patients reporting that they don't feel refreshed when they wake up in the morning.

Learn from experts in sleep medicine about talking with your patients.

Editor's note: The researchers in this podcast discuss sleep issues among African Americans, based largely on the language used in previous studies. However, this discussion also pertains to Black Americans who are not of African descent or do not identify as African American.
