URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/health/article/q_a_with_dr_peretz_lavie_20031128

Dr. Peretz Lavie has spent his career studying sleep and sleep disorders. The fifth-generation Israeli is head of the Technion Sleep Laboratory, which has hosted more sleep patients than any other laboratory in the world. "We've had about 60,000 patients who have slept with us," he joked. Lavie's most recent book, "Restless Nights: Understanding Snoring and Sleep Apnea" (Yale University Press), examines the history of sleep apnea and provides advice for people suffering from this potentially life-threatening sleep disorder.
