Insomnia among the dental college students

Author: ALDRIN A, DHANRAJ GANAPATHY, L.KEERTHI SASANKA
Abstract: A normal person needs approximately 8 hours of sleep every night to perform daily activities efficiently and maintain good health. Sleep deprivation influences many aspects of a person’s life and it is often associated with disturbed mood and anxiety problems and influences the academic achievement and work quality among the students. Dental specialty is often loaded with higher levels of didactic and clinical content, which exerts stress on students as it demands long hours of study and practice, because of this the sleeping hours are reduced and this affects the mental, psychological and physical status. To find the difference in sleep pattern among the dental students. A self-administered questionnaire comprising about 18 questions was prepared and circulated through online to a sample population of 100 dental college students. 28.7% of dental college students have sleep deprivation for days and weeks, 34.7% of them have acute insomnia, and 36.6% of them have chronic insomnia and among them 4% are taking medications for insomnia. This survey concludes that most dental students have healthier sleep patterns and only very few lack good sleep due to sleep disorders. Hence students should accustom themselves to a healthier sleep pattern to enhance academic performance and to avoid health and psychological related hazards.
