New Haven, CT - A sleep specialist will discuss the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea on Tuesday, March 20, 2012, at the Hospital of Saint Raphael. Dr. Roger Elias, a pulmonologist and director of Saint Raphael’s Sleep Health Program, will speak on the topic, “Up all night: How to get a better night’s sleep,” as part of Saint Raphael’s CareCard program for older adults. The lecture is free and open to the public and parking will be validated. Registration is required; call the Healthy Aging Line at 203.789.3275.

About 4 percent of adults are estimated to suffer from sleep apnea, which causes breathing to pause intermittently. Untreated apnea can lead to fatigue, poor concentration and memory loss, in addition to cardiovascular complications like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.

At Saint Raphael’s Sleep Health Program, new testing technology allows physicians to test at home for the signature patterns of sleep apnea. For more information on Saint Raphael’s Sleep Health Program, call 203.867.8141 or visit
