Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
Sleep and circadian rhythms are fundamental requirements for maintaining biological homeostasis. There is a growing body of evidence showing that lack of sleep and the disruption of circadian rhythms are associated with various health problems, such as metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and mood disorders.
In modern society, we live surrounded by various factors that disrupt our sleep and circadian rhythms, such as the widespread use of artificial lighting and electronic devices, the increasing 24-hour shift work, and the internationalization of business. Moreover, the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways. Alterations of our daily routines, combined with reduced daylight exposure, are likely to disrupt our sleep and circadian rhythms.
The aim of this Special issue is to promote awareness in the scientific community about the role of sleep and circadian rhythms in health. We invite submissions of original articles and reviews addressing how sleep and circadian rhythms impact our physical and mental health. We also encourage submissions aimed at developing treatments and diagnostics for somatic and mental disorders from the perspective of sleep and circadian rhythms.
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- The role of sleep and circadian rhythms in mental and physical health;
- Health implications of disturbed sleep and circadian rhythms;
- Chronobiological treatments for sleep disorders and mental disorders.
