The goal of the present research is to define correlation of disease exacerbation risk within the next month and sleep-wake regimen changes in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. 40 patients with remission have been examined three times a week to determine qualitative and quantitative indices of sleep characteristic. During the following month the dynamic examination of the mentioned group of patients has been carried out for the purpose of timely acute condition diagnostics. It has been revealed that disturbances of sleep indices, such as late falling asleep, long-term falling asleep, frequency of awakening and unpleasant dreams become unfavorable risk factors for the development of the next recurrence of gastroesophageal reflux disease during the nearest month, but the remission of this disease is significantly connected with falling asleep duration and awakening time.
