QUANTITATIVE EVOLUTION OF COMPULSORY NOTIFICATION INFECTIOUS DISEASES THAT MAY HAVE SLEEPINESS AS A SIGN OR SYMPTOM IN BRAZIL
According to the Virtual Health Library, linked to the Brazilian Ministry of Health, sleepiness is one of the main signs of infectious and parasitic diseases. Thus, there may be a misperception of sleep disorder when there is a decrease in cognition, perception, emotional state, and behavior that also frequently occur in infectious diseases. Such altered perception may interfere in the characterization of chronobiological aspects. Thus, careful observation of epidemiological aspects of the participants of sleep-related researches is essential.
Perform a comparative analysis of data on the quantitative development of compulsory notification infectious diseases in Brazil that may manifest sleepiness as a sign or symptom.
From the National List of Compulsory Notification - present in Brazilian Ministry of Health Ordinance No. 204 of 2016 - we selected infectious diseases, based on International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems – ICD, that are quantitatively monitored by the Disease Notification Information System. Then, the number of confirmed cases reported from 2007 to date was compared in order to follow the evolution of these diseases in the national territory.
In this context, we present the number of reported cases of infectious diseases from 2007 to date. Finally, we reached a total of 11,038,416 confirmed cases reported in Brazil of infectious diseases that may show drowsiness as a sign or symptom. Very significant number that shows the relevance of considering the variable infectious disease in sleep research in the brazilian territory.
From this research, it is intended to highlight the need for a broader view related to infectious conditions that may influence the characterization of chronobiological aspects in research on chronotypes and social jet-leg. In addition to providing a better understanding of the role of sleep in these pathological conditions, such integrated knowledge has the potential to assist in the development of more effective sleep-related researches strategies. Thus, it is expected to contribute to the optimization of the format of sleep questionnaires and diaries and to increase scientific knowledge about chronobiological characteristics and their relation with infectious diseases. In line with health promotion actions proposed by the World Sleep Society and the Brazilian Sleep Association.
