Sleep Apnea Studies

Americans Report Good Sleep Quantity, not Quality

According to the results from a recent study conducted by The National Sleep Foundation, Americans are getting enough sleep. Yet, the quality of that sleep remains an open question.
Respondents to the Study were, on average, getting more than 7 hours of sleep per night. The typical respondent went to bed at around 11 pm and woke up at around 6:30 am.
Respondents also admitted to sleeping almost an hour longer on weekends.
Over one third of respondents classified their sleep quality as poor, however.
About 25 percent of women in the study stated they did feel refreshed when they awoke; only a little over 10 percent of the men surveyed felt this way.  Further study is needed to determine the reason(s) for this discrepancy.
Getting a good night of sleep is important. According to The National Sleep Foundation, sleep is a key factor in creating a healthy lifestyle. Individuals who believe their sleep quality is lacking should consult with their doctor.

“Dr. Bogrow and his staff helped me deal with sleep apnea in a painless, non-invasive way without a C-PAP machine. Prior to using the dental appliance, my sleep study measured nine interruptions an hour. After getting used to, and wearing the appliance for over a year, my follow-up sleep study measured just TWO interruptions per hour. I don’t notice these interruptions at all and I am waking up feeling wonderfully well-rested! Dr. Bogrow’s been so kind and very patient with me, because getting the best results requires fine-tuning and patience as the appliance is adjusted. Dr. Bogrow takes time to listen to answer any questions I have. I truly appreciate the service he provides and would recommend this option to anyone with mild sleep apnea, before starting on a CPAP machine. As they say, “There’s nothing like a great night’s sleep!”
