The World Sleep Day 2014 will take place on March the 14th, under the slogan “Restful sleep, easy breathing, healthy body”. The World Association of Sleep Medicine (ASM) – which organized the event – will focus on sleep apnea, an obstructive condition of the upper respiratory tract which reduces the quality of sleep, diminishes the amount of oxygen in blood and puts a heavy burden on heart.
