Sleep Health

A good night's sleep is essential to your wellbeing, and nobody knows that better than the 40 million Americans with chronic sleep issues.

Each year, sleep deprivation is linked to thousands of car crashes, and many work-related accidents can be attributed to lack of sleep. What's more, a pattern of insufficient sleep is associated with a host of health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, stroke, diabetes, dementia, weight gain, and depression. If you're dragging through your days feeling foggy and fatigued, our new outpatient Sleep Disorders Program at El Camino Hospital Los Gatos can help you identify and address the cause of your problem.

  • Over a period of four years, obstructive sleep apnea increases a person's risk of having a heart attack or dying by 30 percent
  • 30-50 percent of people with heart disease and 60 percent of stroke patients have obstructive sleep apnea
