Kimberly Truong. Sleep plays an integral role in health. Sleep issues affect people of all ages, and its impacts can be far-reaching. Sleep hygiene is a term that includes both the bedroom environment and sleep-related habits. Optimizing sleep hygiene can play an important role in addressing sleep insufficiency. Excessive sleepiness can lead to workplace accidents, injuries, and deaths.
Michael S. Simmons and Colin M. Sleep, like nutrition and physical activity, is a critical determinant of health and well-being 1. Now, a dozen years after this landmark report, there is strong indication of further decline in healthy sleep in our communities. Uninformed health providers contribute to poor guidance for the public, who may view snoring as normal, unrestful sleep as unavoidable, and self-imposed sleep deprivation as a badge of honor. Population based health problems require population-based solutions! One pragmatic answer to resolving population-based sleep health problems is to identify resources and remove barriers that limit access to care.
Sleep Disorders and Sleep Deprivation: An Unmet Public Health Problem
Untreated sleep disorders and chronic sleep loss are associated with a significant increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure , obesity , diabetes, anxiety and depression , substance abuse , certain types of cancer, automobile crashes, on-the-job accidents, and total mortality along with impaired work productivity, academic performance, and reduced quality of life. More than million Americans live with a chronic disease or disability. The Institute of Medicine IOM report, Sleep Disorders and Sleep Deprivation: An Unmet Public Health Problem, found the cumulative effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders represent an under-recognized public health problem and have been associated with a wide range of negative health consequences, including hypertension , diabetes, depression , heart attack, stroke, and at-risk behaviors such as alcohol and drug abuse — all of which represent long-term targets of the U. Moreover, the personal and national economic impact is staggering. The IOM estimates that the direct and indirect costs associated with sleep disorders and sleep deprivation total hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Sleep science and federal reports have clearly detailed the importance of sleep to health, safety, productivity and well-being, yet studies continue to show that millions of Americans remain at risk for serious health and safety consequences of untreated sleep disorders and inadequate sleep , due to a lack of awareness, community interventions, and inadequate screening.
