Course Summary

A good night’s rest is vital for people of all ages. Sleep deprivation in the elderly population can occur when a regular and expected night of rest does not occur, often due to circumstances beyond a person’s control. There are several known and understood reasons for sleep, with many more being uncovered through continued research and study about sleep habits and processes. A sleep disorder will interfere with essential health benefits derived from good sleep, such as consolidation of memories, regulation of immune function, body growth, and energy conservation. The patient with sleep issues may undergo a number of tests to confirm a diagnosis.
