The Relationship between Sleep, Depression, and Traumatic Brain Injury: A Study of Ontario Workers with Head Trauma

The Relationship between Sleep, Depression, and Traumatic Brain Injury: A Study of Ontario Workers with Head Trauma

While current literature reports associations between psychiatric illnesses and sleep dysfunction, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and sleep dysfunction, and TBI and psychiatric illnesses, the relationship between all three variables has not been examined. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the relationship between brain injury, sleep complaints, and other clinical variables in individuals presenting with work-related head injury. A medical record review of a consecutive sample of 106 head injured workers was performed. Abstracted data included that related to occupation, cause of head injury, diagnoses of TBI and sleep disorders, self-reported sleep complaints, mental health diagnoses, and demographic characteristics.
