We’ve all experienced this as sleep professionals at some point. Occasionally patients that come to the sleep laboratory complain that they have difficulty sleeping away from their spouses or bed partners. A survey in the New Scientist magazine shows men suffer disturbed sleep patterns when they share a bed - while women sleep more deeply. According to the survey, carried out by the University of Vienna, men wake feeling stressed and unrefreshed after a night of broken sleep, whereas women say they sleep best when they share a bed.
