Sleep Disorders In Australia
Sleep disorders in Australia are remarkably common. Approximately 1 in 3 Australian adults suffer from some form of sleep disordered breathing and approximately 1 in 6 adult Australians suffer from non-breathing related sleep disorders (such as insomnia, sleep walking, narcolepsy etc).
The most common forms of sleep disorder in Australia are generically referred to as 'sleep disordered breathing' or SDB conditions. These conditions range from simple snoring, right through to severe obstructive sleep apnoea. In all cases, these sleep disorders are harmful.
