Abstract

With increasing demands on productivity in modern society, lack of sleep is increasingly prevalent. People are now sleeping on average only 6.8 h a day, which is 1.5 h less than a century ago. There is emerging evidence that lack of sleep may contribute importantly to cardiac and vascular dysfunction and disease.
