Last week AASM members Andrew Varga, MD, PhD, and Monica Mallampalli, PhD, discussed insufficient sleep on NBC’s TODAY show. They emphasized the importance of making sleep a top health priority and the necessity of following good sleep hygiene.
A TODAY.com survey found that 26 percent of respondents reported sleeping five or fewer hours each night. Only 16 percent reported getting eight or more hours of nightly sleep.
