Considering we spend a good portion of our lives sleeping, it’s not difficult to see why a comfortable mattress plays an important role in the quality of sleep we experience.
We all know the dreaded feeling of not being able to fall asleep. Your body feels tired, you’ve been staring at the ceiling for hours, but your mind is running in circles.
Whether you’re bogged down with jet lag, struggling with stress, or spending too much time on your phone in the evenings, there are many reasons we have troubles sleeping. In fact, Canadians are dead tired. 33% of us suffer from sleeplessness and 10% of us suffer from insomnia.
The fact of the matter is, breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep, you may be suffering from sleep apnea.
Dreams: sometimes we remember them, sometimes we don’t, but some dreams stick with us, plaguing us throughout our waking hours, inciting almost visceral reactions of anxiety, fear, longing, sadness, or happiness.
Our blog has explored a variety of different topics related to sleep including how important sleep is, how destructive sleep deprivation is, and how disorders like sleep apnea present differently in women.
When we think of evolution, natural selection, predation, and efficiency, sleep might seem like a terrible idea. Lying dormant for six or more hours a day makes us incredibly vulnerable to danger not to mention inefficient, right?
RANA Respiratory Care Group, Provincial Sleep Group and Provincial Home Oxygen have teamed up under a new name, Careica Health.
The first year of our RANA Cares initiative closed out at 631 total staff volunteer hours and a corporate giving fund of $20,000. The RANA Cares committee awarded the donation to three outstanding organizations across Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba—each to receive a third of the $20,000 fund.

We’ve talked about the different warning signs and complications women face with sleep apnea, but what about sleep apnea symptoms in men?
With increased access to technology and devices that have now all but become extensions of our hands, it is becoming easier and easier to send texts - to the point that we are starting to send them in our sleep, with no recollection of the act.
We are pleased to announce that RANA Cares has surpassed our initial goal and as of February 25, 2019, our staff have volunteered 631 hours to not-for-profits in the community!
Your body needs sleep to function at its best. Sleep deprivation occurs when a person gets less sleep than they need or their quality of sleep is reduced. What constitutes a perfect sleep is difficult to determine as people’s sleep needs vary. Eight hours of sleep per night may be necessary for some people, whereas others can function on less.
