Dr. Yaggi discusses heart risk from sleep apnea on NPR
Soon after many people fall asleep, they have trouble breathing. Their upper airway constricts and chokes them. They wake, startled, take a deep breath, and fall back to sleep. Then it happens again and again and again. This condition, obstructive sleep apnea, affects about a fifth of American adults and triples the risk for cardiovascular disease. How exactly has been unclear.
Kids and Poor Sleep: A Habit That’s Breakable
Though it’s not easy to change poor sleep habits, it’s not impossible—particularly for children in preschool and elementary school, says Lynelle Schneeberg, PsyD, a Yale Medicine psychologist and author of “Become Your Child’s Sleep Coach: The Bedtime Doctor’s 5-Step Guide, Ages 3-10” (Lifelong Books).
Dr. Henry Yaggi featured on AJRCCM Podcast: Symptom Subtypes of OSA Predict Incidence of Cardiovascular Outcome
Dr. John Fleetham is joined by Drs. Diego Mazzotti and Henry Yaggi to discuss the paper "Symptom Subtypes of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Predict Incidence of Cardiovascular Outcomes". Dr. Yaggi explains the importance of phenotyping patients with obstructive sleep apnea regarding different disease symptom that allows for a more personal treatment, better understanding of mechanism, prognosis, and designed clinical trials. The podcast also speaks of two additional models of phenotyping: implementing the supervised learning approach and unsupervised learning approach. Finally, he gives his expertise on the strength of the study, the foundational role it can serve for future studies involving sleep apnea as many previous major studies focused exclusively on non-sleepy patients, strategies to safely/ethically recruit future sleepy patients for clinical studies, and future directions of linking phenotyping to clinically relevant outcomes for personalized treatment.
Gut Bacteria Neutralizes Disease-Carrying Tsetse Flies
Yale School of Public Health Research Scientist Brian Weiss, Ph.D., has identified a bacterium that can colonize the gut of tsetse flies and help stop the spread of African trypanosomes, the parasites responsible for causing human sleeping sickness, a potentially fatal disease that threatens millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa every year.

The "Mystery" And Value Of A Good Night's Sleep
Sleep. We all need it. Yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly one in three U.S. adults does not get enough of it. Coming up, we consider the impact of this and other sleep-related trends with Dr. Meir Kryger. His new book is called The Mystery of Sleep. Later, we also find out how one American company is helping families get a good -- and safe -- night's slumber.
Exploring the mysteries of sleep with Dr. Meir Kryger
We spend one-third of our lives in bed, yet little is known about the purpose of sleep, says Meir Kryger, M.D, For more than 40 years, Kryger has been working to answer some of the remaining questions about sleep through innovative research and clinical practice.
Interview with Professor Dr. Meir H. Kryger, MD, FAACP
In this podcast, Dr. Andrey Zinchuk talks with Dr. Kryger, a Professor of Sleep Medicine at Yale University about how sleep and sleep medicine are connected with the arts. Dr. Kryger is a well-known researcher and educator. He is a co-author of the authoritative resource for sleep researchers and clinicians alike around the world, the Principles and Practice of Sleep Medicine. Dr. Kryger has been fascinated with how sleep and sleep medicine have intersected with the arts and literature for decades, and has published widely, given talks and interviews on the topic (2, 6-8).

Hospitals learn that sleep is good medicine
“Patients really don’t sleep in the hospital,” says Margaret Pisani, a pulmonary critical care doctor at Yale University School of Medicine, adding that lack of sleep is what patients complain about most. In addition to leaving patients cranky, lack of sleep can slow recovery and trigger the confusion of delirium, which can lead to longer hospital stays and even dementia, she says.
