OSA was first described in 1960. Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS) was first described in the early 1990's by a doctor at Stanford University. This explains why these conditions seem to be popping up everywhere - not because they were not existent - but because they had not been identified any earlier as a condition. OSA has been around a while longer so sometimes people do not realize that there is a continuum of conditions between good sleep and OSA. UARS lies somewhere in the middle. Dr. Park shows the interrelationships between the results of interrupted sleep and many resultant conditions in only 239 pages including the references and index. In the past, doctors were diagnosing the resultant conditions not realizing their causes. A review of his chapter titles reveals some of the resultant conditions of interrupted sleep: stress, chronic sinusitis and other ear, nose and throat conditions, panic attacks, depression, & anxiety, hot flashes, night sweats, sleep position, weight gain, cold hands, heart disease, some forms of cancer, and so on. This is not surprising as getting oxygen to our body and its organs is a primary thing.
Dr. Park, an ear, nose, and throat doctor, speaks in a conversational way, relating things the way he discovered the links himself through experience with his family and his patients. He is very thorough in reviewing relevant research as he goes. The structure of the book is based on a diagram of interrelationships (page 8 and 40) that are caused by interrupted sleep.
The book is an eye-opener. If the reader has read any of the reviews here on Amazon on this book, you already know that doctors are recommending the book. I just gave the book to two of my doctors and discussed it with my dentist. My cardiologist told me that he knew it was a good book as many of his patients had talked with him about the book.
