Helping patients sleep easily

Surveys of the general population suggest that 49% of adults have brief periods of difficulty sleeping at some time in their lives. One in three American adults is plagued by insomnia sleep disorder, and 35 million complain of chronic insomnia. Insomnia can mean persistent difficulty in falling asleep, staying asleep or waking too early. The consequences of ongoing poor-quality or insufficient sleep include daytime drowsiness, poor concentration and the inability to feel refreshed and rested.

Studies have shown that those with chronic insomnia are more likely to experience major depression or develop an anxiety disorder when compared to the general population. In addition, people with insomnia are at higher risk for automobile accidents and poor job and school performance.

Types of insomnia sleep disorder

  • Sleep-onset insomnia, where sufferers need 30 minutes or more in order to fall asleep (the average, according to sleep study researchers, is about 23 minutes).
  • Sleep-maintenance insomnia, where sufferers awaken one or more times during the night and may need up to 30 minutes to fall back asleep after each awakening.
  • Early morning awakening insomnia, where sufferers awaken before dawn and cannot go back to sleep.
  • Transient insomnia, which can last for one to several nights and can be triggered by stress, excitement or travel across time zones (jet lag).
  • Intermittent insomnia, generally caused by stress, which occurs sporadically over a long period of time.
  • Chronic insomnia, which occurs almost nightly for a month or more and may be caused by many medical conditions from depression/anxiety to OSA and RLS/PLMS.
