|Sleep is not just a "time out" from daily life; it is essential for physical well being. Although many, up to 100 million Americans of all ages, regularly fail to get a good night's sleep. Sleep disorders are widely prevalent and represent a major national health problem that goes highly undiagnosed and misunderstood.|
There are more than eighty disorders of sleeping and waking that result in a decreased quality of life and personal health, and which can endanger public safety. The consequences of sleep deprivation and sleepiness are significant and include decreased productivity, inability to think clearly, and increased likelihood of accidents.
Sleep disorders include those leading to problems of falling and staying asleep, difficulties staying awake or following a consistent sleep/wake cycle, being excessively sleepy at inappropriate times, sleepwalking, nightmares, irregular breathing patterns and other problems that interfere with sleep.
Most adults' need eight hours of sleep every night, although some may need less and others more. When an individual's sleep is adequate, that person should feel alert throughout the day.
Sleep disorders are diagnosed and treated at centers like the Sleep Institute of Spokane. Professionals certified and experienced in sleep-related disorders provide the services.
