The CBS program “60 Minutes” took an interesting look at “The Science of Sleep” last night.  If you missed it, click here to visit the 60 Minutes website where you can view the entire segment.

One point that 60 Minutes missed, however:  when showing a young man whose sleep was being disrupted by beeping noises in a research study, reporter Lesley Stahl, who did an otherwise excellent job, failed to mention that the waking caused by those beeps is not at all dissimilar to what occurs for a patient with obstructive sleep apnea.
