Abstract

Sleep disorders are relatively common occurrence after traumatic brain injury. Sleep disturbances often resulted in difficulties in sleep onset and sleep maintenance, nonrestorative after sleep, poor daytime performances and poor individual sense of well-being. Unfortunately, there has been minimal attention paid to this common and disabling sequela of brain injury. Better understanding about problem, pathophysiology and treatment of sleep disorder after traumatic brain injury will improve the cognitive function, social adjustment and rehabilitation for injured patients. Also it may be helpful to reduce traumatic brain injury in patients with sleep apnea.
