Sleep disorders are common in the general population; however, they are poorly identified. Sleep disorders can negatively affect quality of life. Here are some examples of commonly affected areas:
- Cardiovascular health
- Mental health
- Energy and alertness
- Increased risk of Depression
- Heart attacks, stroke, and high blood pressures
- Motor vehicle or work-related accidents
The high rate of sleep disorders in the population proves that this is a major public health problem needing special attention. The most common types of sleep disorders are sleep apnea and insomnia.
Insomnia means being unable to fall asleep AND maintaining sleep throughout the night. This results on waking up not feeling rested. There are multiple causes of insomnia and they can range from excessive thinking or worrying, limbs being restless, and episodes of “pause in breathing” spells which can cause sleep apnea. Treatment for insomnia can be as simple as learning relaxation techniques or as complex as needing medication or even a breathing device called CPAP.Dr. Wayne W. Lai
