This trial is evaluating whether Treatment will improve 3 primary outcomes and 12 secondary outcomes in patients with Sleep Debt. Measurement will happen over the course of change from baseline to 2 months post intervention.
This trial requires 60 total participants across 3 different treatment groups
This trial involves 3 different treatments. Treatment is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. Some patients will receive a placebo treatment. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Sleep debt can be quantified from sleepiness measured objectively using electroencephalography (EEG). A decrease in baseline delta and theta power is associated with sleep debt, and this suggests that the brain cells may be in a state of reduced suppression in sleep debt. Thus sleep debt may be related to a fundamental physiological change rather than just a transient one caused by disruptions of sleep." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Sleep debt affects the quality of life in people with sleep problems. The symptoms of sleep debt are fatigue, sleepiness or insomnia in the morning, but also worsening in the afternoon. It can be difficult to see the signs of sleep debt for several reasons. Sleep debt is only a symptom of poor quality sleep; it is not a permanent condition. It is possible to reverse this and start recovering by implementing sleep hygiene and by adjusting the sleep environment." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"With treatments, sleep debt is a symptom that can be resolved. Sleep debt can be reduced from several months to less than five days with efficient treatment. People can feel as if their lives are back to normal even though their sleep debt has not been fully eliminated." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Sleep debt may be used as an alternative or complementary approach to sleep restriction in patients with chronic insomnia. Future work is needed to examine the effectiveness in clinical practice." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Sleep debt was prevalent among adults aged 26–55 years. Sleep debt was associated with poorer self-rated health and socioeconomic status. Sleep debt also predicted higher rates of depression, poorer sleep quality, and lower levels of well-being. Sleep debt in adults should be evaluated in future interventions, and interventions addressing sleep debt should be incorporated into sleep hygiene and sleep deprivation research." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Sleep debt is a chronic medical condition that worsens with increasing daytime sleepiness. The number of people affected by this condition in the United States is unclear, but because it is difficult to determine the exact prevalence of sleep debt, the estimate we present is more likely underestimates its true extent. In a recent study, findings has major implications for clinical practice, and identifies sleep debt as an area for future research." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The most common side effects of treatment and treatment interruption are: rash (4.4%), headache (4%), nausea (3.3%), joint pain (3%), and constipation (1.6%). In total, 32% of healthy subjects reported side effects from treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The correlation between sleep duration and sleep debt is surprising. The primary cause of sleep debt is an excessive number of nocturnal awakenings and insufficient REM sleep. Findings from a recent study have immediate implications for clinicians and patients alike." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The combination of CBT with other treatments is common across treatment categories (i.e., [adherence], health care team, psychosocial, behavior change). Research is necessary to elucidate factors that influence the type of combinations and how to effectively use these combinations in practice." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In short-stay hospitalizations with a diagnosis of [sleep apnea](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/sleep-apnea) or OSA, we found an association between increased cumulative total sleep time and odds ratios for hospital readmission." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The current literature shows that sleep debt is a common phenomenon and affects several aspects of health. It is likely to be underdiagnosed. A more comprehensive questionnaire to assess sleep debt would further support screening. Additional support is needed for more accurate measurement of sleep debt." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"To find the best treatment for patients with insomnia, the number of treatments should be the focus, with a particular focus on combining treatments. Also [dependence] is an important criterion to consider. There are many reasons for a shift from conventional to electronic prescriptions. However, not all changes to electronic prescriptions is really a good idea. The use of an electronic prescription is not a guarantee of treatment success." - Anonymous Online Contributor
