Sleep Disorders, Attention Problems Linked
Sleep disorders are diagnosed by sleep studies in which a combination of diagnostic parameters such as oxygen saturation and movement are monitored during sleep. Obstructive Sleep Apnea Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening disorder in which breathing is interrupted during sleep. An estimated 12 million Americans have sleep apnea, and many of these people have associated sleep disorders such as restless leg syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder.
