Modern sleep science
Lecture in german
Deutsche Gesellschaft für Schlafforschung und Schlafmedizin (DGSM) is an interdisciplinary medical society with 2,300 members. In Germany, it represents the entire field of sleep medicine at Arbeitsgemeinschaft Wissenschaftlich Medizinischer Fachgesellschaften (AWMF). DGSM places great emphasis on sharing knowledge about sleep medicine with patients and, to this end, offers a variety of informative materials. Current issues in sleep medicine include the pros and cons of changing the clock to/out of daylight saving time and the question of whether permanent daylight saving time would compromise our health. Developments that reinforce the problems resulting from lack of sleep, which are increasing, should be avoided at all costs.
