NarcolepsyStreaming Video - 2008
At various moments throughout the day, people with narcolepsy experience a sudden urge to sleep. If the urge becomes overwhelming, they may sleep for periods lasting from a few seconds to several minutes. This program examines the chronic neurological disorder and its connection to the brain's inability to regulate the correct times for sleeping and waking. Illustrating the profoundly debilitating aspects of the condition-which makes basic activities like driving, typing, and even conversing with others extremely difficult-the program presents case studies and expert interviews. Dr. Richard Bogan of SleepMed and Dr. Todd Swick of the Houston Sleep Center are featured.
