Sleep changes through the lifespan

United States · CPD courses & CPD points · Health Professionals

Dr. Alison Bentley shares how sleep changes across the lifespan in this short clip below.

While some patients might complain of insomnia, these may be age-related changes, and it's important to make this distinction.

Dr. Bentley also argues that although 8 hours is the average sleep requirement, it is not the same for everyone; there is no set 'normal', as individuals have unique sleep requirements. This may be a relief for some parents of babies and toddlers to hear, especially if their children do not conform to the textbook age-related recommended sleep requirement.
