 A perspective from the United States on sleep reports that twenty-five percent of adults report not getting

sufficient sleep. Sleep in America Polls by the National Sleep Foundation findings indicate that adolescents reported
getting, on average, six and a half of the nine hours sleep they need each night. With regard to work in America,
it is estimated by the Centers for Disease Control National Institute for occupational Safety and Health reported
that 41 million workers get less than six hours of sleep a night (i.e., 7 to 8 hours is recommended). Metabolic
changes in the body (e.g., heart rate, insulin resistance, systolic blood pressure) occur with poor sleep quality.
This phenomenon is referred to as cardio metabolic health vulnerability to restricted sleep. Health professionals
(particularly Sleep Specialists) are able to identify the impact of sleep disturbances on their patients. This and other
poor sleep conditions need to be detected and treated by a health care specialist.
