Lack of Sleep Linked to Reduced Quality of Life

Not getting between six to nine hours of sleep a night can reduce your quality of life, according to a new study presented by Dr. Charles Bae at the 25th Anniversary of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS).

The study, conducted over two years, evaluated data collected from 11, 000 patients and concluded that those with “normal” sleeping patterns (between six and nine hours per night) had lower ratings for depression and higher ones for quality of life, regardless of age, gender, race or marital status.

Dr. Bae commented: “These results are important because they provide more information about the importance of getting enough sleep.”


A regular lack of sleep for some people may be the result of underlying medical problems, such as sleep apnoea. ResMed PEI provides links to many sleep apnoea resources.

If your sleeping patterns are affecting your quality of life you should contact your local healthcare professional.
