For the past thirty years, Rande Lazar, MD, has worked as an ear, throat, and nose doctor at ENT Memphis, focusing on sinus, ear, and throat infections. Since 1984, he has remained on staff at other Memphis-area hospitals, including LeBonheur Children’s Hospital,Saint Francis Hospital and the Methodist Hospitals of Memphis. In addition to his work with patients, Rande Lazar, MD, is on the editorial board of Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Journal. He is the section editor for the Pediatric Otolaryngology section of the same journal. Published in New York, ENT Journal provides original clinical articles based on care pertaining to ears, noses, and throats. It includes case reports, scientific research, and timely content in its publications. In June 2015, ENT Journal published an article on a study of 428 Turkish schoolchildren and their sleep habits. Researchers looked into sleep disorders, which affect around one-third of people and can cause depression, reduced quality of life, and impaired school performance. Students answered a questionnaire to determine when they went to sleep and woke up, and if they snored, felt tired during the day, or had difficulty concentrating at school. The conclusion of the report found that difficulty in falling asleep, snoring, and daytime sleepiness might occur to students in both primary and high schools, and that watching inappropriate television programming might cause sleeping problems.
