The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 50-70 million U.S. adults have sleep or wakefulness disorders. These conditions manifest as snoring and gasping, restless sleep, difficulty falling or staying asleep, daytime sleepiness and performance difficulties. In addition, they may be associated with or causing health problems and require expert medical care to correct.
