According to a recent report published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, as many as 36% of adults have reported sleep problems during the pandemic. Coronavirus patients were hit particularly hard by this trend, with 75% of them experiencing disturbed sleep.
44 studies were analyzed to learn these findings, with the United States and 12 other countries involved.
In addition, about 36% of health-care workers also suffered from sleep issues during the pandemic. This is a population that may be particularly vulnerable due to the nature of shift work and the stress of their jobs.
People who don’t get enough quality sleep each night are putting themselves more at risk to suffer from:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Cardiovascular Problems
Even if you’re getting the recommended 7+ hours of sleep, you might not be getting quality sleep. Sleep disorders like sleep apnea can make it so that you never achieve a deep sleep throughout the night, making you just as tired as if you hadn’t slept. You can test for sleep apnea or other sleep disorders by starting with the SleepMaster Solutions™ free sleep screening.
