Feeling tired in the daytime, having low energy and falling asleep in boaring situations, as well as loud and irregular snoring, are symptoms which would lead us to conduct an outpatient sleep laboratory investigation. Not only children but also adults do not get enough restorative sleep often due to excessive activity, stress and exercise. This prevents the perception of underlying tiredness.
Insomnia is very often associated with arterial hypertension. Whilst suffering from sleep apnoe, ost patient suffer from high blood pressure. It is not uncommon for patients referred to us for sleep diagnostics because theirblood pressure levelwas difficult to correct, or because tests have shown that their blood pressure level does not decrease sufficiently at night.
