Better Treatment Chocies for Sleep Apnea  

Description

The Carlsbad Senior Center welcomes Dr. Brad Eli, from Tri-City Medical Center to discuss treatment options for sleep apnea. 90 million Americans suffer with some form of sleep disorder. Although sleep apnea is treatable, it often goes unrecognized. New research suggests that people who suffer from a form of sleep apnea are at significantly increased risk for diabetes and hypertension and other related maladies. Learn how to recognize the warning signs of sleep apnea, how to distinguish it from normal snoring, and what to do about it. Topics covered will be:
• Personal and health related risks for people who suffer from sleep apnea
• The demographics of sleep apnea:  progressive disease that can affect anyone
• The multiple non-surgical treatment options available
Dr. Eli earned a post-doctoral Master’s Degree at UCLA where he received advanced training in sleep disorders. He remains the only expert with this unique skill set in the San Diego region. He is a member of numerous professional associations including the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and is currently on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and UCSD. He holds multiple patents in the fields of both sleep and pain.
