J. Daryl Thornton, associate professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, discussed sleep and its effect on the cardiovascular system on Cardi-OH Radio’s podcast, “Sleep Disorders and the Heart.”
In the podcast, which took place on July 12, Thornton reviewed how sleep time deficiency and sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia, increase cardiovascular risk.
He also provided guidance on how to help patients with these conditions. Thornton was interviewed by Deborah Gordish from The Ohio State University.
Case Western Reserve University is the lead institution for Cardi-OH, a statewide initiative of healthcare professionals at Ohio’s seven medical schools who share knowledge to improve Medicaid patient outcomes and eliminate health disparities across Ohio.
