Self-reported "sleep quality" often is assessed in epidemiologic studies. However, the bases for variation in sleep quality is not fully understood. We quantified the extent to which subjective sleep ...
People spend large portions of their lives working, often to the detriment of sleep. Businesses often ignore the importance of employee sleep despite evidence showing sleep health is crucial to positi...
Sleep bruxism, a major sleep disorder that causes serious harm to oral health, is considered a multifactorial disease. Sleep bruxism can be induced by smoking, which also adversely affects sleep quali...
Sleep deprivation is present not only in sleep disorders but also in numerous high demanding jobs and negatively affects cognition, performance and health. We developed a study design to distinguish t...
The usage of wrist-worn wearables to detect sleep-wake states remains a formidable challenge, particularly among individuals with disordered sleep. We developed a novel and unbiased data-driven method...
The purpose of this 3 week study is to test the effectiveness of an over-the-counter (OTC) skin balm in infants and toddlers with mild to moderate dry, itchy skin.
The purpose of this 14-day, two phase clinical study is to test the tolerance of a new over-the-counter moisturizing balm on subjects with eczema.
The purpose of the study is to assess the impact of a mental health training program in volunteer and career firefighters.
The primary aim of this non-randomised feasibility study is to 1) examine the acceptability of a newly developed computerised Behavioural Activation programme (BALM) in treating young peop...
"Healing our Minds and Bodies" (HHMB) uses a a hybrid type II effectiveness/implementation study design to increase both patient and organizational readiness to address trauma and CVD risk...
Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep. (From Chokroverty, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, pp319-20; Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 1998 Apr:52(2):125-129)
Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
