In an interview about the event, Dr. Rodolfo César Callejas Rojas, Neurologist and specialist in Sleep Medicine, reinforced the importance of the Forum, saying that in Mexico, little or no sleep is a common reality. “28% of the people in the country have some kind of sleep problem, including children with chronic sleep deprivation”, he declared. For this reason, it is important to ensure that the consequences of these issues do not become more severe, such as in snoring, for example: “most of the time snoring accompanies sleep apnea and, night after night, this situation starts to damage the heart, lungs, brain and others organs, which can trigger other more serious problems ”, he adds.
