Sleep medicine is a medical specialty devoted to the therapy and diagnosis of sleep disorders and disturbances. Competence in sleep medicine requires an understanding of a plethora of very diverse disorders, many of which present with similar symptoms such as excessive daytime sleepiness, which, in the absence of volitional sleep deprivation, is almost inevitably caused by an identifiable and treatable sleep disorder, such as narcolepsy, sleep apnea, circadian rhythm disturbances, Kleine-Levin syndrome, idiopathic hypersomnia, menstrual-related hypersomnia or idiopathic recurrent stupor.

Neuropsychiatry is a branch of medicine that deals with mental disorders associated with diseases of the nervous system. Neuropsychiatry has become a growing subspecialty of psychiatry and it is also closely related to the fields of neuropsychology and behavioural neurology. Neuropsychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer’s disease include psychosis (delusions and hallucinations) as well as behavioural changes such as depressive mood, anxiety, irritability, apathy, euphoria, disinhibition, aggression, aberrant motor activities, sleep disorder, and eating disorder.

 

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. Sleep apnea may be three types Obstructive sleep apnea, Complex sleep apnea syndrome, Central sleep apnea. Symptoms of sleep apnea include Loud snoring, Morning headache, Difficulty staying asleep, Irritability, Excessive daytime sleepiness etc. Obstructive sleep apnea affects 1 to 6% of adults and 2% of children. It affects males about twice as often as females. Central sleep apnea affects less than 1% of people. Treatment may include lifestyle changes, breathing devices, mouthpieces and surgery.

Insomnia is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Insomnia may be characterized based on its duration, acute insomnia and chronic insomnia. Insomnia can be caused by psychiatric and medical conditions, specific substances, unhealthy sleep habits, and certain biological factors. Some symptoms of insomnia include waking too early in the morning, trouble falling or staying asleep, unrefreshing sleep etc.

Circadian rhythm disorders are disruptions in a person’s circadian rhythm (internal body clock) that regulates the (approximately) 24-hour cycle of biological processes. Common circadian rhythm disorders are Advanced Sleep Phase Disorder, Jet Lag, Shift Work Disorder, Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder etc.

Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that causes persistent sleepiness and additional symptoms such as muscle weakness known as cataplexy, dreamlike hallucinations, vivid, brief episodes of paralysis when falling asleep or upon awakening and fragmented night time sleep. Narcolepsy usually begins between ages 10 and 20, although sometimes it starts as late as age 40 or 50. Narcolepsy affects women and men equally, occurring in about 1 in 2,000 people.

Cataplexy is a sudden loss of muscle tone that causes feelings of weakness and loss of voluntary muscle control. Cataplexy attacks generally last less than two minutes, and they may only last a few seconds to 30 minutes. About 75% of patients with narcolepsy experience cataplexy. Narcolepsy with cataplexy is a disabling sleep disorder affecting 0.02% of adults worldwide.

Sleep disorders that involve difficulty breathing during sleep are classified as sleep-related breathing disorders. Some common Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders are Sleep Apnea, snoring, child sleep apnea, infant sleep apnea, central sleep apnea etc. Treatment measures for breathing-related sleep disorders include avoidance of supine positioning during sleep, behavior modification aimed at improving sleep hygiene and avoiding additional sleep deprivation, and avoidance of ethanol and sedative medications.

Paediatric Sleep Disorders are frequently because of temporary or incessant restorative problems and are seen in upwards of 25 to 30 percent of babies and kids. They may extend from deficient sleep, sleep time settling issues and sleepwalking to sleep apnea and narcolepsy. Paediatric sleep disorders increasingly interfere with daily patient and family functioning. Sleep disorders in children may affect to daytime moodiness, irritability, lack of focus in class, sleepiness in school, inability to get up in time for school, and significant behavioural and learning problems. Some sleep disorders will cause adverse cardiovascular and metabolic effects as well as failure to thrive. Interest in and treatment of sleep disturbances in youth continues to grow, but research lags.

Sleep disorders are common in patients with neurologic disorders. Research has demonstrated links between neurologic and sleep disorders, showing that sleep disruption can serve as a risk factor for future development or worsening of neurological disorders. An understanding of the diagnostic assessment, common comorbidities, and treatment options can impact overall health outcomes. Treatment of sleep disorders is rapidly changing with new and effective behavioral, pharmacologic, and device strategies.

Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures and the resulting sound due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. Snoring during sleep may be a sign, or first alarm, of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Snoring is the result of the relaxation of the uvula and soft palate.

ADHD (Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) is a highly genetic, brain-based syndrome that has to do with the regulation of a particular set of brain functions and related behaviors.  ADHD is caused by Brain Communication Differences, Genetics, Brain Communication Differences. Most effective treatment for ADHD is a combination of medication and therapy.

There are many similarities exist between natural sleep and anesthesia. During early parts of natural sleep, an individual is difficult to arouse. During general anesthesia, a patient cannot be aroused. Parts of the brain that are responsible for sleep are similar to areas that control general anesthesia. General anesthesia is a drug-induced, reversible condition that includes specific behavioral and physiological traits unconsciousness, amnesia, analgesia, and akinesia with concomitant stability of the autonomic, cardiovascular, respiratory, and thermoregulatory systems. Substantial insights can be gained by considering the relationship of general anesthesia to sleep and to coma.

Sleep is a natural, periodically recurring state of inactivity, characterized by the loss of consciousness and reduced responsiveness to external stimuli. In contrast, wakefulness is the absence of sleep and is marked by consciousness, awareness and activity. Observation and speculation about the state of sleep was possible for thousands of years.

Sleep therapy is used to cure sleep disorders. There are more than 80 types of sleep disorders. And there are many therapies used which include psychotherapy, behaviour therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, family therapy, paly therapy, occupational therapy, art therapy and many more.

More Investigation studies are needed to explore the relationship that exists between circadian rhythm, mood, behavioral, and sleep disorders and sleep medicine. Evidence-based criteria in the diagnostic approach and management of these conditions with overlapping symptoms would vastly improve treatment and outcome.
