Sleep disorders in the elderly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Many elderly complain of serious difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep. Sleep physiology changes with age. Furthermore, medical conditions that may affect sleep and serious pathologic sleep disorders are more prevalent among the elderly. Treatment should be directed toward any identified underlying condition after thorough evaluation by history, examination, and in certain instances, referral to a sleep disorders center.
