Are You Sleeping?

January 24, 2016 01:00 PM

These days, many of us are not sleeping well. Poor sleep can be caused by many factors, alone or in combination. For example, people who work rotating shifts can often have sleep problems when schedules change. Other cause of lack of sleep include:

    •    Anatomical or medical issues that affect breathing during sleep
    •    Stress from work, financial, social, or family pressures
    •    A sleeping environment that is not conducive to sleep due to noise, light, etc.
    •    Medications or medication interactions
    •    Health conditions or pain that causes wakefulness

In recent years, great strides have been made in the field of sleep medicine. Medical devices to aid breathing during sleep are smaller, quieter, and more comfortable. Targeted medications, closely supervised, can make a difference in many causes of poor sleep. Whether your lack of sleep involves not being able to fall asleep, or if the problem is staying asleep, get help from one of our expert sleep physicians.
