Before industrialization made it easy to light city streets and homes late into the night, people had very different sleep patterns. When these patterns resurface today, they get labeled as pathology, but they might not be as dangerous as we think. Sleep deprivation has become a way of life for many Americans. Can you tell the difference between simple snoring and sleep apnea? Sleep apnea may have even more dire health results than keeping your bed partner awake. One condition characterized by poor sleep is fibromyalgia, a hard-to-treat chronic pain syndrome. We get an update on how restoring sleep in sufferers improves their quality of life. Guests: Mary Klink, MD, clinical associate professor of pulmonary medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. She is director of the Wisconsin Sleep Clinic. A. Roger Ekirch, Professor of Early American History, Virginia Tech Martin B. Scharf, PhD, Director of the Tri-State Sleep Disorders Center; Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Wright State University College of Medicine
