Friday, October 10, 2014

SAN DIEGO – ResMed is launching Better Sleep for Women, a new initiative to educate women about the importance of sleep, it announced recently. A recent ResMed survey of 500 women ages 40-65 found that fewer than 20% believed they need to make improvements in the quality of sleep, according to a press release. It will focus on sleep as the third pillar of health, alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise. The program will provide information, tips and resources about women and sleep through a robust online experience including a dedicated website and social media. "Many women resign themselves to experiencing daily fatigue, blaming it on demanding schedules and busy lifestyles," said Dr. Carmel Harrington, a leading sleep researcher and author of The Complete Guide to a Good Night's Sleep. "It is critical that women recognize that constant fatigue or loss of energy is something that warrants a conversation with their doctor.”
