Sleep Disorders: Who do they affect?

More than 100 million Americans fail to receive a good night’s sleep on a regular basis. There are over 80 disorders that affect sleeping and waking, resulting in diminished quality of life and individual health. The most common sleep disorders are breathing-related, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA.

  • 6 out of 10 adults say they have problems sleeping a few nights every week
  • 4 out of 10 adults say daytime sleepiness is severe enough to interfere with their activities a few days per month
  • Over 100,000 motor vehicle accidents annually are sleep-related
  • Shift workers, overnight drivers and many other occupations are affected
  • People with high blood pressure and excessive weight are at a higher risk

Several treatment options are available for sleep disorders; however, determining the underlying cause is the first step in appropriate treatment.
