Sleep Disorders

With over 40 million Americans suffering from a chronic sleep disorder and upwards of 62% of adults experiencing sleep problems a few nights per week, it’s safe to say that millions of Americans are not getting the sleep they need to maintain good health.
Sleep Disorders

Overview

A sleep disorder is a physical and psychological condition or disturbance of sleep and wakefulness caused by abnormalities that occur during sleep or by abnormalities of specific sleep mechanisms. Although the sleep disorder exists during sleep, recognizable symptoms manifest themselves during the day. Accurate diagnosis requires a polysomnogram, widely known as a “sleep test.”

It is estimated that some 40 million Americans suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders. Another 20 to 30 million Americans suffer from some kind of sleep disorder on an irregular basis. The annual costs in productivity, health care, and safety have been estimated in the billions of dollars.
