Apellániz Martínez and collaborators delve into the impact of confinement on the sleep of children and adolescents, a topic that has received little attention until now. This study seeks to shed light on how restrictions due to COVID-19 have affected the sleep of young people cared for in the public health service.
The sample includes patients from 3 to 16 years old, and the results are revealing. At the beginning, 82% of the participants showed sleep disturbances, a percentage that was maintained for 6 months. However, a year later and coinciding with the relaxation of the measures, this figure decreased significantly to 22%.
The results highlight the emotional impact of confinement on the child and adolescent population, specifically on their quality of sleep.
