Hi Spencer, great job summarizing Dr. Shukla's talk. I really enjoyed the variety of disorders covered in her talk. With many of the sleep disorders discussed, it seemed like there were some clear ways that practice should perhaps change to recognize these sleep disorders and their effect on patient quality of life and outcomes. For example, as you mentioned, sleep apnea is a modifiable independent risk factor for stroke, with use of CPAP shown to improve stroke outcomes. Despite the evidence, there seems to be poor uptake of changes in practice and poor awareness of these disorders and their relations to patient outcomes, such as stroke. I was wondering if you had any thoughts on which changes in practice regarding one of these sleep disorders might be the easiest to implement or the most important to focus efforts on implementation?
