Jeffrey Durmer, MD PhD was recently the featured expert and co-host of Martina Desgouttes’ holistic health show Healthy Explosion on BlogTalkRadio. Dr. Durmer is Chief Medical Officer of FusionHealth®. During the show, Dr. Durmer and Ms. Desgouttes discussed the most common Sleep Disorders and the dangers associated with not getting adequate sleep. According to Dr. Durmer, Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is the most common Sleep Disorder.
SDB is a category of respiratory conditions that come on during sleep. The body’s upper airway muscles relax during sleep. When these muscles relax and vibrate, snoring is produced. When these muscles relax to the point of complete collapse, however, the airway is cutoff and breathing is temporarily suspended. This condition, known as Sleep Apnea, and other conditions caused by Sleep Disorders interrupt the restorative processes of sleep, often resulting in chronic health issues. In this ten minute segment, Dr. Durmer details various Sleep Disorders and the dangers associated with each, specifically with individuals in the transportation industry.
