Michael Newnam talks with Ch. 2 about another pandemic byproduct, 'coronasomia'

The pandemic has altered many elements of everyday life including sleep patterns, according to Michael Newnam, M.D., co-director of sleep medicine at Oklahoma Heart Institute.

Dr. Newnam described the condition as coronasomnia. Because of the pandemic, some have lost their boundaries between work and home environments.

"Many people are doing school and work in the home environment, so there’s no separation,” Dr. Newnam said. So you’re never really leaving work because that’s where you live.”
