25% of Australians are Significantly Sleep Deprived
Twenty five percent of Australians are significantly sleep deprived, increasing their vulnerability to illnesses that range from digestive problems and depression through to increased risks of road accidents, chronic fatigue, memory and concentration problems, and many others.
As the medical profession, we understand the impact of chronic sleep loss on physical and mental health.
Research suggests that sleep is associated with:
- Memory processing
- Mental acuity and moods
- Rejuvenation and repair of the body
Sleep is also important for optimal brain function and sleep disruption results in reduced ability to function well during the day. Studies have shown that if one sleeps less than six hours per night - "good" hours - the sleep deficiency causes deterioration in ability to concentrate, in vigilance, ability to work efficiently, and "bad mood".
Chronic sleep disorders may even lead to developing diabetes, heart problems and hormonal problems.
How We Can Help With Treating Sleep Disorders
We are able to provide treatment to patients diagnosed with sleep disorders in our centre. Treatment may include prescription of medication, providing special equipment to people with sleep apnoea and behavioural therapies, such as relaxation techniques.
For certain patients, surgical intervention may be appropriate, and our physicians will advise patients on available options.
For all patients, our staff are available to assist with personalized treatment and follow-up support.

I had a home study several years ago, because I did not want to sleep in a hospital bed.
Well, MediSleep must have heard this sentiment before, because the feel of the unit is like being at home - the furnishings, the beds, the service - all first class. V. L.
