FusionSleep’s Chief Medical Officer Featured on CNN’s Daily Dose Discussing the Hidden Dangers of Snoring
Jeffrey Durmer, MD PhD, was recently the featured expert on CNN’s Daily Dose. Dr. Durmer is Chief Medical Officer of FusionSleep®, a FusionHealth® company. During the short segment, Dr. Durmer discussed the dangers associated with a snoring bed partner. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 1 out of 4 American couples sleep in separate beds. One reason for 25% of couples sleeping separately is snoring. Disruptive and restless partners, while annoying, should not be dismissed. Multiple studies have shown that snoring is an early warning sign for other health issues.
