Background & Aims: Insomnia and sleepiness are common sleep disorders in various societies, especially among students. The aim of this study was to evaluate the sleep quality of students at school of Health, Urmia University of Medical Sciences.
Materials & Methods This descriptive-analytical study was conducted in 2017 with the participation of 207 students with an average age of 22.91 years. The study tools were Insomnia Severity Index (ISI), Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Descriptive and analytic tests such as independent t-test, chi-squared, and Pearson correlation were used for data analysis.
Results: The mean score of sleep quality, sleepiness, and insomnia severity were 5.10 (0-21), 10.39 (0-24), and 8.87 (0-28), respectively. The sleep quality did not differ significantly between male and female students (P-value> 0.05). About 36.2% of students had poor sleep quality, 45% of students reported mild insomnia, and 50% of them reported daily sleepiness? Listening to the music before bed and also the stress did not affect the sleep quality of students significantly (P-value> 0.05), while they significantly increased the students' sleepiness (P-value <0.05).
Conclusion: Daytime sleepiness was high among students (regardless of gender and residence status) and its severity was higher among students with stress and the habit of listening to music before bedtime. Therefore, appropriate measures should be taken to increase the quality of sleep and decrease the daytime sleepiness of all health science students.
