SLEEP, HEALTH, AND WELLNESS PROJECT

2009-2011

Would you be interested in having your blood pressure assessed? For free? If so, you may be interested in taking part in a research study examining the influence of everyday factors on blood pressure throughout the day.

Researchers in the School of Psychology and the Centre for Research on CROLSOccupational and Life Stress are about to embark on an ambitious research study examining the influence of work-life balance, social networks, and sleep duration on physical health. Previous studies suggest that the increasingly large number of people who have less than the recommended 7½- 8 hours of sleep each night have greater risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.  The aim of the present study, funded by hrb_logo_colour_thumbnail_150x131pxthe Health Research Board (HRB), is to examine the effects of sleep duration on everyday fluctuations in blood pressure level and how sleep loss contributes to stress in our daily lives.

For an overview, please see the the webpages on your right.

If you think you may be interested in participating in this study, or would like to hear more, please email the Project Manager, Dr Siobhán Howard at siobhan.howard@nuigalway.ie .
