Patients with sickle cell disease who have shorter sleep duration, fragmented sleep, or inefficient sleep appear to have more days of greater pain severity, according to study findings. The authors noted that their results suggest that both the separate and combined effects of sleep duration and fragmentation should be considered in evaluating pain in adults with sickle cell disease.
