ResMed released the results of its ResMed Asia and Latin America Sleep Health Survey, which looked at overall sleep habits and their impact on respondents’ well-being across the region. The ResMed-commissioned study, conducted online by AtomikResearch in India (5004), Brazil, China, Japan, Korea, and Mexico, discovered that the majority of the 17,040 respondents suffered from insufficient sleep or poor sleep quality, with only 21 percent waking up feeling refreshed in the morning.
In India, 81 percent agreed that poor sleeping habits can have a negative impact on one’s quality of life and that getting enough sleep is critical for maintaining one’s immunity; 53 percent attempted to get more sleep to address this. Those who struggled with sleep also reported mood swings (24 percent ), as well as difficulty concentrating during the day (21 percent).
“We conducted this survey to investigate the importance of a good night’s sleep and its impact on one’s wellbeing,” said Carlos Montiel, ResMed’s Vice President of Latin America and South Asia. “The findings show that people struggle to sleep at night and are interested in learning more about their sleep habits and sleep quality.”
