Are you looking for more information about UARS, upper airway resistance syndrome? What about choosing the right type of positive airway pressure device (PAP)? Still struggling with insomnia? Hoping to decrease sleeping pill use or eradicate entirely? Are your sleep professionals unable to solve your problems?

I will address all these issues and more to better guide you in your own care plans directed by your various healthcare providers. You may also learn more about my background at the website www.barrykrakowmd.com, where you will find several videos on the connections between insomnia and sleep breathing (complex insomnia), the importance of aggressive nasal hygiene to improve sleep, and why you wake up at night to urinate. My TEDx talk on “complex insomnia” is also available.
