The Handai-Asahi Nakanoshima Juku offers courses produced and sponsored by Osaka University and Asahi Culture Center. The Handai-Asahi Nakanoshima Juku was established at the time [Osaka University's] Nakanoshima Center was built in 2004.

These courses share results of research conducted at Osaka University with the general public in an easy-to-understand format. In these lectures, leading lecturers give presentations on topics in culture, art, history, science, technology, health care, as well as seasonal and current topics.

Date & Time: Saturday, November 15, 2014 -- 10:30 a.m. ~ 12:00 noon

Tuition fee: ¥1,620

Lecturer: ITO Norihisa, Professor, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University

In this course, I'll be talking about a sleep disorder characterized by loud snoring, pauses in one's breathing when sleeping, and daytime drowsiness, a condition known as sleep apnea syndrome. Falling asleep at the wheel and causing a traffic accident is not the only worry for persons with sleep apnea syndrome. We also know it's involved in various conditions such as hypertension and irregular heartbeat. I'd like to explain about this syndrome, from its complications, diagnosis, through to treatments. My hope is that persons who find they want to sleep so much during they day they can't stand it and persons whose families say their snoring is much too loud, I hope such persons will come and take part in this course.
