A Better Approach to Sleep Health.

About Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders are known to cause interrupted sleep and compromise daytime alertness. Insomnia, daytime fatigue, memory loss, mood disorders and sexual dysfunction are well-established consequences of sleep problems. Recent evidence has linked poor sleep to motor vehicle accidents, especially among commercial drivers.

In addition to addressing the impact of sleep on quality of life, Sleep Clinics of America (SCA) promotes the comprehensive care of sleep issues to reduce their burden on chronic health conditions. Increasing medical literature implicates suboptimal sleep, primarily in the context of sleep apnea, as being causative in the development of many medical conditions.

Conditions Can Include:

Diabetes

High Blood Pressure

Obesity

Stroke

Heart Failure

Cardiac Arrhythmias

Depression

Metabolic Syndrome

Coronary Heart Disease
