Sleep Awareness Day – “Sleep in Times of Covid-19”
June 21st will be Sleep Awareness Day for the German Society of Sleep Medicine and the motto will be “Sleep in Times of Covid-19”. The Corona pandemic, with its associated health, family and economic consequences has caused many people sleepless nights. Two-thirds of Germans report that since Corona, their sleep behaviour has changed and about 10 % of Germans even suffer from chronic insomnia.
Up until now, there was no screening procedure available to obtain objective data for suspected neurologically induced sleep disorders – SOMNOmedics is changing that now! Our new Home Sleep Test is a cost-effective, outpatient screener which determines sleep stages as well as sleep fragmentation by arousal.
