Adrian Aron

The April 13, 2015 meeting with Professor Adrian Aron was an examination of Sleep Apnea and the impact it has on COPD and a variety of other lung and health problems.

Discussed during the presentation was how sleep apnea can exasperate diabetes, hypertension, and cause blood pressure issues.

Professor Aron described how sleep apnea is often not recognized immediately but can sometimes be found through symptoms like:

Daytime fatigue or drowsiness

Decrease in intellect

Behavioral and personality changes

Memory loss

Left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a myriad of health issues, such as:

Cardiac Dysrhythmias

Vascular Disease

Cardiac Hypertrophy

Cardiovascular morbidity and mortality

Professor Aron described the different kinds of tests done to detect sleep apnea, and treatment methods, in particular the usage of CPAP sleeping masks.

The video recorded presentation will be brought online soon.
