SLEEP DISORDERS

Sleep is part of the life of humans and most vertebrates. It is essential for our bodies from both a qualitative and a quantitative standpoint. During sleep, the body regenerates and prepares for the next physical and mental challenges, and our subconscious sorts out the events of the previous day. The need for sleep is different at different ages: newborn babies only seem to wake up to feed, while old people can get by with only a few short hours of sleep. Two cycles alternate during sleep. During the non-rapid eye movement (NREM) or slow wave sleep (SWS) phase, the energy of the body is restored, and growth hormones are released. This cycle is interrupted by REM (rapid eye movement) periods, primarily characterized by irregular, faster and shallower breathing. The eyes perform rapid movements in all directions, while the muscles of the extremities are temporarily unable to move. Dreaming mostly happens during the REM phase. Studies have shown that brain areas involved in learning, thinking, and organizing are active during this period.

Lack of sleep impairs performance and adaptability, increases the risk of accidents, decreases immune defenses, and prolonged sleep deprivation can lead to death.

Most sleep disorders are associated with some type of physical, psychiatric, or psychological illness or problem, although they can also occur as a separate condition. Sleep disorders most frequently manifest as problems falling or staying asleep, early waking, or a combination of both. However, there are also specific sleep disorders such as narcolepsy (sudden, unexpected sleep attacks at various times of the day) or somnambulism (sleepwalking).

Today there are several sleep centers in Hungary (one center in the Heim Pál Children’s Hospital is specializing in the treatment of children). It is recommended that you visit one of these if the sleep disorder has been present for a long time.
