Abstract

Disturbances of sleep can be encountered in many medical disorders. Conversely, sleep impairment can adversely affect the symptoms of a variety of medical conditions, including respiratory, cardiac, gastrointestinal, renal, rheumatologic, and infectious disorders. More than one sleep pathology may be present in a particular patient, and these disorders may interact to increase the severity or prolong the duration of sleep disturbance.
