Join us as we host Dr. Robert Vorona, an Adult Sleep Specialist in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Allergy and Sleep Medicine at MUSC. He has helped care for adult sleep medicine patients for over 30 years initially in private practice and for the last 20 years in medical schools in Virginia and now South Carolina. This lecture will review two current hypotheses for why we sleep, recommended sleep amount and the neurocognitive and peripheral consequences of insufficient sleep. Then Dr. Vorona will discuss the data that do or do not reveal decrements in a wide range of physician functions and finally discuss sleep restriction mitigating strategies.
