Sleep is vital for renewing our mental and physical health each day. However, more than 100 million Americans of all ages fail to get a good night’s sleep. There are at least 84 sleep disorders that lead to a lowered quality of life. They endanger public safety by contributing to traffic and industrial accidents. These disorders can lead to problems falling asleep, difficulties staying awake or staying asleep, sleepwalking, bed-wetting, nightmares, and other problems interfering with sleep. Some sleep disorders can be life-threatening.

Critical Care Medicine relates to the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions.
