Women and Sleep

Do you have trouble getting to sleep at night? Do you doze off at work, while driving, or at other inappropriate times? Do you feel depressed, sluggish or unmotivated? Do you or your partner snore? Do you wake up to go to the bathroom during the night? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then you might be one of millions of American women who suffer from sleep problems.

In fact, a 2005 National Sleep Foundation poll found that women are more likely than men to have difficulty falling and staying asleep—and women are also more likely to experience daytime sleepiness.

Following are the most common sleep disorders among women.

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Insomnia
  • Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) / Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD)
  • Nocturnal Sleep-Related Eating Disorder (NS-RED)
  • Narcolepsy

Children and Sleep

Good quality sleep is crucial to children’s physical and emotional health, and sleep problems can negatively affect their mood, relationships, schoolwork and other activities. Because pediatric sleep medicine is a relatively new field, these problems too often go untreated.

Led by pediatric pulmonologist and medical adviser for Pediatric Sleep Services at Crozer-Keystone Vatsala Ramprasad, M.D., the Crozer-Keystone Sleep Centers helps children ages 6 months to 16 years with sleep problems get the rest they need. Among the pediatric sleep disorders we treat are:

  • ADHD

  • Behavioral Sleep Disorders

  • Circadian Clock Changes

  • Insomnia

  • Narcolepsy

  • Night Walking

  • Non-restorative Sleep

  • Parasomnias

  • Sleep Apnea
