Sleep Health, Can it be Measured?

Kingman P. Strohl, MD, Professor of Medicine, Physiology & Biophysics, and Oncology at Case Western Reserve University, & Director at the Center for Sleep Disorders Research at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center

Dr. Strohl reviews how if we can define and measure the dimensions of Sleep Health, we can begin to develop predictions and preventions for early dysfunctional behavior that are risks for common sleep disorders i.e. insomnia or sleep apnea. If there is a metric, it can be used to define outcomes beyond that of the physiologic value, such as AHI, and guide educational efforts to build a sleep healthy society.

  • Describe the need for a pivot from sleep disorders to sleep health
  • Understand how a metric for behavior could be developed and utilized
