The sleep camps will raise awareness on sleep disorders and the necessity of visiting sleep labs and seeking medical attention for healthy and sound sleep.

"Awareness on sleep disorders is rising -- people are increasingly looking at lack of sleep as a potential health issue. But a lot needs to be done, especially in tier-II cities," said Harish R, Head of Sleep and Respiratory Care at Philips, India.

"Sleep disorders and their relation with potentially life threatening conditions like diabetes, hypertension and cardiac arrests cannot be ignored," he added.

Symptoms of sleep apnea include unwarranted daytime sleepiness and trouble in concentrating which can have a serious impact on health and increase cardiac conditions, strokes, neurological disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and irregular heartbeats.
