Short Sleeper


In a review of various classification schemes for sleep disorders, Thorpy (1990) listed 'short sleeper' under the broad category of 'disorders of initiating and maintaining sleep' (DIMS); however, the short sleeper phenotype or trait is not considered a sleep disorder. Individuals with this trait require less sleep in any 24-hour period than is typical for their age group.See also familial advanced sleep-phase syndrome (FASPS ), which is a distinct disorder characterized by very early sleep onset and offset.
