What sends you to sleep?

For some sleeping is a matter of watching paint dry, counting sheep or listening to nature. But, for many people, falling asleep and staying asleep are struggles. Chronic sleep or respiratory conditions can have devastating effects if not treated or diagnosed.

How the world sleeps

Man sleeping View Global Sleep Survey Data

In honor of World Sleep Day, Philips executed a 10-country survey to generate new insights into how sleep impacts people’s lives, what keeps them up at night and what they are (or are not) doing to improve their sleep, around the world.

How are you sleeping?

The first step to better rest is investigating your risk of an underlying sleep disorder. A significant percentage of the global population is estimated to suffer from disrupted sleep, and sleep apnea is one of the most common of sleep disorders that is often undiagnosed.

If you think you might be at risk for sleep apnea, do something good for your health today by taking the sleep apnea risk assessment.

We also invite you to share the risk assessment with loved ones who you think might be suffering from sleep apnea, so they can get the help they need to sleep better.
