Systematisches Review und Metaanalyse kontrollierter Studien zum nicht erholsamen Schlaf

Die Konsequenzen des nicht erholsamen Schlafes sind vielfältig und haben bedeutende gesundheitliche und ökonomische Auswirkungen. So verursachen Erkrankungen, wie das obstruktive Schlafapnoesyndrom oder auch das Restless-Legs-Syndrom, neben dem Leiden und den Einschränkungen der einzelnen Individuen...
