Heart Doc VIP with Dr. Joel Kahn

Nov 4, 2022

The American Heart Association (AHA) has taught Life's Simple 7 to estimate cardiovascular health but now there is an upgrade to Essential 8. What was added? Optimal sleep!

A study called MESA demonstrated the profound impact of sleeping 7-8 hours without sleep apnea and the data was so strong it is now part of the risk estimator. (Want a home sleep apnea study? Call 248-731-7412)

A second study from the UK described the particular risk of sleeping less than 5 hours.
