Sleep disorders

There are several different types of sleep disorders such as; being excessively tired in the day, insomnia, sleeping at the “wrong times” (circadian rhythm disorders) and unwanted behaviours during sleep (parasomnias).

The Epworth scale is often used to assess excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). A score of more than 11 indicates EDS.
