Abstract: Prolonged exposure to screen-based devices is known to cause sleep disturbances. Computer professionals area population with regular, prolonged screen exposure and hence have a higher probability of developing sleep disorders. This study was aimed to find the association of co-morbidities and addictions, with sleep disorders, in computer professionals of South India as there are no previous published data on sleep disorders in this population. In the study population, a history of hypertension (7.1% of participants) was found to be significantly associated (p-value <0.004) with prevalence of sleep disorders. Screening for life-style diseases and health awareness campaigns should be done in this group as they are an at-risk population.
