OLDER AFFECTS YOUR SLEEP - TRY THESE HELPFUL AIRBED & SLEEP TIPS - AND SLEEP MORE
People who suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia often
fall asleep faster and into the deeper restful REM sleep
stages longer on an adjustable airbed mattress. Simply let
your body's natural HEAT AND WEIGHT cause the viscous celled
memory foam topper to "COPY YOUR PERSONAL BODY SHAPE AS YOU
MOVE DURING THE NIGHT".

medical and physical conditions, their outlook and their

The poll results suggest that, like
Nan, many older Americans are sleeping well and may actually
sleep better than adults aged 18–54. More older adults are
sleeping 7- 9 hours on both weeknights and weekends (56% vs.
51% for weeknights and 60% vs. 55% for weekends).
Additionally, the 32% of older adults who nap 1–3 days a
week or more get an average of 41–51 minutes of supplemental
A closer look at the NSF poll data,
however, found a striking relationship between two sets of
factors infrequently considered together in medical care:
the health and quality of life of older adults, and their
sleep quantity and quality. The NSF poll found that the
better the health of older adults, the more likely they are
to sleep well.
Conversely, the greater the number of
diagnosed medical conditions, the more likely they are to
report sleep problems. Additionally, among older adults,
more positive moods and outlooks as well as having more
active and "engaged" lifestyles (having someone to speak
with about a problem, exercise, volunteer activity, etc.)
are associated with sleeping 7–9 hours and fewer sleep
"In spite of the emerging science
linking sleep quality and health status," says NSF President
James K. Walsh, PhD, "Most people believe that poor sleep is
an inevitable consequence of getting older. But NSF’s poll
findings reinforce the relationship between good sleep and
good overall health, particularly in older individuals.

comparison" yourself compared to the old-fashioned innerspring bed and

Rather than a consequence of aging,
poor sleep among older Americans appears to be an indicator
of health status." Dr. Walsh is Executive Director and
Senior Scientist of the Sleep Medicine and Research Center
at St. Luke's Hospital in Chesterfield, MO.
airbed health facts:
In the 2003 poll, NSF profiled the
sleep patterns and sleep complaints of 1,506 older
Americans. About two-thirds of older adults (67%) report
experiencing one or more of the following symptoms of a
sleep problem at least a few nights a week:
difficulty falling asleep
waking a lot during the night
waking up early and not being
able to get back to sleep
waking up feeling un-refreshed
pauses in breathing
unpleasant feelings in their

viscous celled foam beds using their own brand name for the
visco memory foam like our's is SERTA BRAND memory foam -

comfort layer will make your airbed like sleeping on a magic
cloud. If you can afford it we HIGHLY recommend the
adjustable airbed contains this incredible foam. And the
THICKER the MEMORY FOAM the BETTER the AIRBED.
In spite of the abundance of these
sleep complaints, only a small fraction (one out of eight)
say that they have been diagnosed with a sleep disorder and
fewer are treated.
don't realize their blood flow is being cut off by their
mattress pressure points - causing tossing and turning
during sleep - and preventing people from entering the
beneficial DEEP SLEEP REM sleep cycles you need to refresh
your body. Probably a big reason the new adjustable airbed mattresses
with memory foam comfort layers have become so popular.
When NSF also asked respondents to
rate their health, those who rate their health as good to
excellent are less likely to report a sleep problem than
those who say their health is fair to poor (59% vs. 85%).
For instance, those who report
having excellent or very good health are less likely to
sleep less than six hours than those who describe their
health as fair or poor (11% vs. 22%).
Similar findings occurred when
health assessments were compared to symptoms of sleep
disorders. For instance, among those who rate their health
as excellent or very good, 38% say they have one or more
symptoms of insomnia, but nearly double (71%) have such
symptoms if they report their health as fair or poor.
Similar patterns occurred for all reported symptoms of sleep
disorders such as those associated with sleep apnea or
restless legs syndrome: those who report better health
report fewer symptoms of sleep disorders.
less sleep you get the more you need to enter the deep sleep
REM sleep cycles and stay in them longer - a major benefit
of the new adjustable firmness controlled airbed mattresses
with visco memory foam comfort body support layers.
HEALTHY OLDER ADULTS TEND
TO SLEEP WELL, BUT THOSE WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS ALSO TEND TO
HAVE SLEEP PROBLEMS.
IS THERE A CONNECTION? COULD AN ADJUSTABLE AIRBED
MATTRESS HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER?
NSF also asked respondents if they
had been told by a doctor that they have any one of 11
common medical conditions, including high blood pressure,
heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, lung disease,
cancer, depression, memory problems, enlarged prostate and
The number of reported medical
conditions increases with age, but 19% of all respondents
reported having four or more conditions. When compared to
those who have no medical conditions, those with four or
more conditions have a greater likelihood of sleeping less
than six hours (22% vs. 10%), are more likely to rate their
sleep as fair or poor (40% vs. 10%), are more likely to
report a sleep problem (80% vs. 53%) and are more likely to
experience daytime sleepiness (27% vs. 5%).
Often such signs of sleepiness and
sleep problems have been assumed to result from the medical
condition that is being treated. But the poll data suggest
that many older Americans who have been diagnosed with a
variety of medical conditions may be suffering as much or
more from poor sleep.
Many people report the new adjustable firmness controlled
airbed mattresses containing this visco memory foam that uses pressure
and body heat to literally 'cradle and conform' to their
body shape during sleep have greatly reduced sleep problems.
NSF also questioned respondents
about their mood, outlook on life, cognitive function,
social involvement, exercise frequency, and financial
security. In general, those who assess themselves positively
in these areas—people like Nan Jansen—also are more likely
to sleep seven to nine hours each night, rate their sleep
quality as excellent or very good, and report fewer sleep
problems and diagnoses of a sleep disorder.
So, what does the Sleep in
America poll tell us about the connection between
sleep, health and aging? "We reaffirm what we know from the
epidemiology of aging that there is a very strong
correlation between common medical conditions and a
predisposition to sleep disturbances," says Daniel Foley, an
epidemiologist at the National Institute on Aging who
assisted NSF with the 2003 Sleep in America poll.
"A person may have several medical conditions that they're
seeing their doctor about and they may be getting treatment,
but they don't feel they're getting better. What may go
unrecognized is a tremendous amount of sleep disturbance and
daytime sleepiness. What may go overlooked is a major sleep
disorder that may be complicating treatment of the other
conditions." Sometimes as
part of an overall sleep program people switching to the new
adjustable firmness push-button controller airbed with visco
memory foam top padding report decreased sleep problems and
a more "refreshing sleep".
"The poll results show we need to
educate the public and healthcare professionals about the
connection between sleep, health and aging."
