Robert Rosenberg, DO, writes about a new study that links CPAP therapy with lessening PTSD nightmares in Everyday Health.

Given that PTSD is such a severe problem and that many also suffer from sleep apnea, the authors recommend that routine sleep apnea screenings for individuals with PTSD be a customary order. I agree and am hopeful that healthcare providers will become more aware of the underlying sleep disorders that require attention in PTSD.
