Breathe Better, Sleep Better, Live Better Podcast

In this episode, Kathy and I have an interesting discussion about the 7 most common myths that I encounter about surgery for the tonsils:

  1. Don’t take out tonsils because they are part of the immune system and help fight infections 
  2. Tonsils can grow back after tonsillectomy 
  3. Tonsils shrink as you get older or you can outgrow them
  4. Surgery can lead to bleeding
  5. Anesthesia can be harmful in children
  6. You need to find the best surgeon 
  7. Small tonsils don’t need to be removed

In this special episode, I will be having a conversation with with Dr. Barry Krakow, who will talk about his new landmark study on eclinicalmedicine, the online version of the prestigious journal Lancet. The title of the paper is Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial on the Efficacy of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure and Adaptive Servo-Ventilation in the Treatment of Chronic Complex Insomnia.
