Women are More Likely than Men to Have Trouble Sleeping
Adequate and fulfilling sleep is a key component to women staying healthy and living a long and happy life. Studies show that women who sleep 6 or less hours per night have reduced reaction time when driving, increased mood swings, and in some cases serious damage to the body due to lack of adequate sleep. Women are also twice as likely to experience insomnia-related symptoms as their male counterparts. And, sleep problems can affect women’s hormone levels significantlyimpacting their weight as well as sleep health during pregnancy and menopause.
Pediatric Sleep Care
Sleep is critical to all major functions of the body. In children, sleep is essential for proper mental and physical development. Studies link sleep with learning; the area of the brain that controls processing procedural or “how to” learning has been demonstrated to be negatively affected by lack of sleep.
Medical experts indicate that any child who snores regularly, or has other signs of breathing problems during sleep, may benefit from an evaluation. In addition, for children that have difficulties with attention deficit, hyperactivity, or daytime sleepiness, there may be something that can be done to help if the child has a sleep disorder.
Inspira Sleep Centers Egg Harbor Township, Vineland and Woodbury offer specialized sleep evaluation and treatment for children with sleeping problems. After completing a night time diagnostic sleep study, one of our experienced physicians will determine a diagnosis for your child’s sleep problem and recommend appropriate treatment.
