Dr. Jean Tsai, an assistant professor of neurology at the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine and the director of the sleep program at Denver Health, joins Murf to talk about a variety of issues concerning sleep and how is works in regards to our basic health.  Adults should get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep nightly.  Learn what you can do if you have difficulty falling asleep.  Find out about sleep apnea, how to test for it and what is the treatment?  As a long time morning broadcaster, Murf asks about catching up with a lack of sleep on the weekend.  How about napping?  Dr. Tsai explains that all these answers are not as easy as one might think.

Murf and Jayla welcome Dr. Christina Vaughan.  Dr. Vaughan works with our friend, Dr. Benzi Kluger, in the Department of Neurology Supportive and Palliative Care Clinic at the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine.  Christina explains that their clinic, which is probably the first of its kind in the US, treats patients who have neurologic diseases with a medical approach where the focus is on the quality of life.  This approach includes not only the patient, but the family and caregiver as well.  The clinic also councils patients on coping and future planning.  Dr. Vaughan explains this extensive care is best accomplished with an interdisciplinary team of professionals.
