Abstract

Objectives: to evaluate the pattern of sleep habits of university students and the degree of satisfaction with their sleep. Background: College students generally develop inadequate sleep habits and often deprive them of sleep during the week. Sleep deprivation and / or fragmentation causes the student to experience a number of undesired consequences arising from excessive daytime sleepiness. This situation causes loss of attention, concentration and operational memory. In addition, poor sleep quality contributes to fatigue, irritability, stress, cognitive deficits and academic performance decline. Material and methods: A total of 134 students answered a questionnaire about the duration of their sleep, habits of sleep hygiene, degree of satisfaction with their sleep and presence of nap. Results: The mean age of the 134 students was 20 years, 44 were males, the average of sleep duration on weekdays was 6.2 hours and on the weekends was 8.5 hours and 61 students said that they nap regularly. The majority claimed to be dissatisfied with the length of their sleep on weekdays and more satisfied with the length of sleep on weekends. Conclusions: Although an adult individual needs an average of seven to eight hours of sleep per night, college students are often deprived of nighttime sleep on weekdays trying to compensate for daytime napping.
