Sleep, Health, and Society

A number of sleep-related breathing and respiratory disorders impact our ability to achieve a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, these disorders are becoming increasingly common—a phenomenon that has been linked to the rising obesity rates in society. In this chapter we aim to provide an overview of how some of the most common disorders (particularly obstructive sleep apnoea) contribute to poor sleep, review how these disorders/diseases impact both the individual and society, and discuss some of the key challenges and hurdles that we, as a society, will need to overcome if we are to maximize sleep quality in the community.

Keywords:   Obstructive sleep apnoea, Obesity, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Overlap Syndrome Asthma, Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrom
