Course Summary

Every person requires sleep as a normal part of daily activity and for continued health and stability. Almost everyone experiences disrupted sleep at one time or another. There may be some nights when sleep is hard to get, while on other nights, sleep cannot come soon enough. For a percentage of the population, sleep is continuously disrupted as a result of sleep disorders. These conditions impact the ability to achieve good, quality sleep and lead to chronic sleep deprivation, exhaustion, and possibly long-term health consequences. This is the second in a three-part series on sleep disorders.
