“If sleepiness interferes with work or other daytime activities, and if you’re an adult who gets less than seven hours of sleep a night despite going to go to bed on time, it’s a good idea to get a sleep evaluation,” says pulmonologist Jyoti Matta, MD, Medical Director of the Center for Sleep Disorders at JCMC.
Since sleep-related breathing disorders are associated with an increased risk of hypertension, cardiac disease and stroke, it is important to get a diagnosis as soon as possible so that treatment may begin.
