MedPage Today: Three distinct profiles of sleep changes are seen in the general population during COVID-19.

While there was high variability in sleep changes, three distinct profiles of sleep-related behaviors emerged during the pandemic, reported Rebecca Robillard, PhD, of the University of Ottawa and the Royal’s Institute of Mental Health Research in Canada, at the virtual SLEEP 2020, a joint meeting of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society.

“Our results suggest that the effects of the pandemic on sleep are more complex than just bad or good,” Robillard observed.
