Title

The Prevalence of Sleep Disorders among Ageing Adults residing in Jaipur City

Abstract

Sleep disorder is a very grave issue among ageing adults. Research studies shows that many ageing adults are suffering from various sleep problems. There are many sleep disorders exist but insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and narcolepsy are found mostly in the population. If the person twisting and turning all the night and can’t sleep at night or awake before the time, it is the symptoms of insomnia. When a person is sleeping and repeatedly experiencing uneasy respiration or interruption in respiration, it could be the sign of obstructive sleep apnea. When a person is experiencing pain, creeping and crawling sensation in the legs during sleep, it can be restless leg syndrome. If a person can’t sleep properly at night and experiencing sleep attacks during day time, it could be narcolepsy. The objective of the study was to study the percentage profile of various kinds of sleep disorders among 150 male and 150 female ageing adults of Jaipur city, Rajasthan, India. A Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index was used to examine sleep disorders in the ageing adults. A measure to examine sleep disorders was developed by the investigator and its reliability was 0.854. This is a useful measure to access types of sleep disorders among males and females ageing adults. In this study, it was found that the percentage of insomnia in ageing adults was found to be high than other sleep disorders whereas the percentage of the ageing adults with narcolepsy was found very least. Restless leg syndrome and obstructive sleep apnea was moderately found in the ageing population in this study.
