Sleep Apnea and Shaq
Many people have heard that Shaquille O'Neal has been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Harvard Medical School's Sleep Medicine Division has a great website about OSA and features a 4 minute video of Shaq. In the video, he describes his symptoms, the sleep study he had, and the treatment - in this case, it was CPAP.
The website also has great information about OSA for the general public.
