Sleepiness and fatigue can greatly impact day to day living. From driving a car, to attending school to trying to complete work or errands, poor sleep can result in poor performance. Much like diet and exercise are key components to good health, so is adequate sleep. Sleep health refers not only to the importance of good sleep hygiene and sleep quantity (rearranging work schedules to better fit your lifestyle, decreasing screen time prior to going to bed or going to bed 30 minutes earlier), but also to the proper treatment of sleep disorders that can disrupt a good night’s sleep as well.
For those diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, consistent treatment can have long lasting and beneficial effects on sleep quality and overall health. Associated health risks such as stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease can be decreased when sleep apnea is properly managed.
