Thank you for visiting American Sleep Association ® (ASA).

The primary mission of American Sleep Association is to improve public health by increasing awareness about the importance of sleep and the dangers of sleep disorders. A secondary goal is to support other organizations that share our objectives.

ASA was founded in 2002 by sleep physicians and scientists as a member-driven public awareness effort. ASA believes that every member of the community (physician, scientist, allied health care, technologist, patient, family member, and corporate partner) can make a positive impact in this effort. ASA is not a medical society.

Who we are: ASA Board Members, Reviewers and Writers

The field of Sleep Medicine has appreciated a tremendous amount of growth over the past few decades. Sleep scientists have uncovered many of the mysteries of sleep. Sleep medicine has become its own credentialed field. Sleep has also become a popular topic in the media.

Unfortunately, most individuals with sleep disorders and other sleep problems are still undiagnosed and untreated.

Over the past decade, the ASA has helped to educate millions of people on the importance of sleep health and the recognition of sleep disorders. Originally at, the website has undergone many revisions.

We have made exciting improvements. Our new website offers a user-friendly and interactive interface to access information and connect with others.

Private support, corporate support, and banner ads have enabled ASA, a charitable LLC, to provide all of its educational resources for free to the public.

We will continue to add new services and content to insure that ASA remains a comprehensive source of sleep information.

    I recently saw an article on sleep disorders and this person said about 15% of adults in the U.S. do not get enough sleep each day. I thought this would be much higher than 15%. Is this correct? Also are fit bits and apple apps good for a sleep study?

    Thank you

    Good morning! I have a 5 year old CPAP machine. I just got a new one and would like to donate the old one. Can you guide me through it?

    I am writing to Inform you that I found a few spelling and grammatical errors while reading your article about chin straps,. I thought I had inadvertently stumbled across a site selling products under the guise of a reputable organization. Perhaps a proof reader might be in order?

    Thank you for the information and links supporting the details you provided. I found it very informative!
