"I don't think you can overdose on healthy sleep," Safwan Badr, chief of the division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, said.

Dr. Safwan Badr, professor and chief of Pulmonary Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at Harper University Hospital and Wayne State University School of Medicine, told CBS News, "The first rule in medicine is do no harm."
Badr said that applies both to the patient and the broader world of health care. "Draining precious resources with no benefit" is also a harm, he noted. In his specialty of sleep medicine, overnight sleep studies have been overprescribed for insomnia patients. "Doing a polysomnogram -- which involves a full night of monitoring sleep, breathing, heart, and movement -- rarely provides you with useful information for insomnia patients," said Badr. He said medications, which can have many side effects, are also not a first line of treatment for insomnia unless there are other complications. Likewise, Badr said some patients with insomnia who also have a second sleep disorder and haven't found relief through behavioral adjustments, may benefit from an all-night sleep study.

"Sleep is part of our own nature's defense against illness," says Dr. M. Safwan Badr, former president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and chief of the division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit.
He calls the study's results "powerful." The study is unique because it used objective measures to show that poor sleep habits make people more vulnerable to a cold virus, says Badr, who was not involved in the research. The actigraphy measured sleep in a much more accurate way than information researchers get from self-reports, he says.
