The impact of insomnia can be worse than the Covid-19 epidemic


New research has shown that with shortness of breath, 31 percent of the patients suffering from insomnia have more lethal symptoms than Covid-19. Such patients are at increased risk of hospitalization and death. Such patients are at risk of hypoxia. Even with this disease, people die due to breathlessness while sleeping.

Research published in the journal 'JAMA Network Open' states that patients who have difficulty breathing during sleep are not at the same risk of infection as Covid-19 as they are more likely to develop serious diseases. The research team led by MD Dr. Reena Mehra, from an assessment of data from 5,400 patients from the Cleveland Clinic, said that as the Covid-19 pandemic continues, it is extremely difficult to assess which patient is going to have the worst effect.
