According to a Gallup Poll, more than one-third of the population has trouble sleeping.
Studies show that children with sleep disorders are more likely to have behavioral issues, and that treatment can lead to significant improvement in both behavior and school performance. Pediatric sleep services are available at Hackensack Meridian Health.
The physical, psychological, and hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can lead to fatigue and sleep problems. Pregnant women are also at risk for developing sleep apnea, and other sleep disorders can be made worse during pregnancy. Treatment can provide relief for pregnant women and improve their overall health.
Sleep testing observes breathing patterns and checks for possible airway-related problems that may affect surgery and recovery outcomes.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnea has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular problems, such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, heart rhythm problems, and stroke. Obstructive sleep apnea causes people to stop breathing repeatedly during sleep because the airway collapses and prevents air from getting into the lungs. These pauses put strain on the heart and can lead to serious conditions. Treatment can reduce the risk of these problems.
