  • Veterans’ Sleep Apnea Claims Cost $1 Billion Per Year

    Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the need for sleep, and what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have referred to as the “epidemic of sleep deprivation.” One of the many results of this growing awareness is that more people are paying attention to their own symptoms and seeking medical diagnosis and treatment, and this includes America’s veterans. A recent government survey has revealed a 150% increase in the number of veterans who have submitted claims for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, a serious condition whose treatment classifies those vets who have been diagnosed with it at 50% disabled. This level of disability qualifies for one of the highest levels of monthly compensation. Continue reading

  • Sleep Number Downsizes its Price

    Early in the year 2014, at an event known as CES 2014, Sleep Number made a big splash by rolling out its latest product: smart beds. Combining the best of their original design with the newest technology that is being used in a number of sleep monitoring applications and devices, the beds had built-in sensors that would provide the consumer with feedback about their vitals, the temperature in the room, the amount of movement that was being registered in the bed over the course of an evening, all with an eye to providing valuable information about the quality of sleep that was being experienced and what kind of improvements might be made. Unfortunately, the technology was accompanied by a hefty price tag, with the X12 model coming in at $6,000. Understandably, a lot of consumers that may have been interested in the bells and whistles were turned off by the price.

    Now Sleep Number has announced that they are producing a more basic level of the X12 technology that will have a price of just $1,000. Although that is still a relatively high number for a mattress, it is well within the realm of what high quality mattresses are selling for in the United States, and considering the technology that the mattress offers, it may prove to be appealing for consumers who are growing increasingly concerned about getting the rest that they need, as well as the biophysical feedback that is becoming more and more popular.

  • Sleep – The Elusive Essential

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have called sleep deprivation a health epidemic, and there are countless articles written by experts decrying the national tendency to place work, social life, and even video games and movie-watching ahead of sleep as a priority. Though that is certainly happening in a large number of American households, there are also plenty of homes where people who are unable to get to sleep would gladly trade places with those people who are actually making the conscious not to.  Continue reading

  • Preschool Sleep Ed Program Shown to be Effective

    Researchers at the University of Michigan have found that an innovative sleep education program targeting preschoolers extended the children’s nightly sleep by thirty minutes.

    The study, which was recently published in the journal Sleep, was instituted through the Head Start program, and included a single 45-minute educational program aimed at parents and supplemented by two weeks of in-class programming aimed at children. The study, which involved exposing the kids to a program titled Sweet Dreamzzz, involved 152 children. The program’s success was measured through diaries that the parents were asked to keep, tracking their children’s sleep. Continue reading

  • Over Fifty? New Study Shows Sleep is More Important than Ever

    It is a fact of live for many in the over-fifty set that with age comes difficulty in sleeping. There are a number of reasons for this. For some, it’s simply a matter of sleep not being high enough on our to-do list, with job, family and social responsibilities taking precedence no matter how many articles we read on the importance of getting our rest. For others it’s a matter of health. Many women over the age of fifty struggle with hot flashes and other hormonal side effects of menopause and its aftermath, while both sexes can struggle with chronic pain that makes sleep difficult. Add to this long list the fact that the risk of obstructive sleep apnea disorder becomes greater as we age and it seems like everything is working against us. Continue reading
