Sleep Disorders

The average adult needs between eight and eight and a half hours of sleep a night. However, children and adolescents need more hours of sleep than the average adult.

Infants
(3–11 months)
14–15 hours sleep
Toddlers
(11 months–2 years)
12–14 hours sleep
Preschoolers
(3–5 years)
11–15 hours sleep
School age
(6–17 years)
10–11 hours sleep
Adults
(18 & Older)
8–8.5 hours sleep

Ponder this, if you get 8 hours of sleep a night — but sleep next to a snorer — you may not be getting 8 hours of sleep a night.

Oftentimes, the symptoms of sleep disorders go ignored, and the affects can be damaging. Many people convince themselves it's no big deal and the only person they're really hurting is themselves. The fact is, your sleep disorder — including one as common as snoring — may be seriously impacting the health of your husband or wife. Studies show that when adults don't get the sleep they need, their health deteriorates. In fact, sleep disorders have been found to be key factors in high blood pressure, heart disease and stress that can drastically decrease work performance and strain family relationships.
