Sleep Basics

Sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, an estimated 70 million people have trouble sleeping. When trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, you probably try to exercise and eat a healthy diet, but what about getting a good night’s sleep? Adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, but most average only 6.9 hours of sleep.

Sleeping well or not sleeping well can affect every aspect of your life, from your job and relationships, to your mood, health and safety. Did you know that 40 million adults suffer from a chronic sleep disorder? Sleep disorders are conditions that prevent restful sleep and result in fatigue, daytime sleepiness and dysfunction.

Current clinical research projects include:
Effects of PAP compliance on weight loss, and other variables, post bariatric surgery
Effects of Individualized Multidisciplinary CPAP Compliance Program on Health Outcomes
