In these increasingly stressful days, sleep has never been so important. Local GP Dr Michael Crampton talks to Hawkesbury sleep specialist Dr Donald Lee about why sleep is so elusive and what can be done about it. The conversation is split into two parts. In the first 20mins the discussion is community focussed, providing general advice about sleep, what a lack of sleep could be doing to your overall health, as well as tips for getting a good night sleep.
In the second half the program, the two delve into a more technical discussion for local GP’s. Dr Crampton and Dr Lee discuss the types of conversations GPs should be having with their patients, when it’s best to recommend a home study versus a lab study, the accreditation process for a sleep study, reading a patient report, the newest technologies, CPAP and finally the role of GPs in ongoing care.
