MELBOURNE Wholesale Nike Air Force 1 Sage , May 22 (Xinhua) -- Young people suffering from cysticfibrosis (CF) are getting less sleep than their healthy peers, aworld-first Australian study has found.
The study, released by Monash University on Monday, saw CFpatients fitted with a wristwatch to monitor sleeping habits.
Rosemary Horne, the lead author of the study, said on Mondaythat "sleep is important for everyone, but particularlychildren."
"If they have poor sleep during the night, they have worseoutcomes in the day. They can't pay attention in school, they feeltired, grumpy and it can be very disruptive."
Researchers measured the sleep of 87 Victorian children with CFagainst 55 health participants over a two week period.
Although the CF patients were spending as much time in bed asthe control group, they were awake more often.
Caitlin Magagna, a 17-year-old participant in the trial with CF,said she often had six or seven hours a night.
"About 50 percent of the time I wake up in the night and I don'treally know why. I know from the study that my oxygen supply candrop and I get quite short of breath," she said.
"For the past few months, I feel like I'm always tired... therehave been a couple of times where I have fallen asleep in class orfelt like I was on the verge of it."
Horne said there was some evidence that sleeping better couldimprove lung function among CF patients.
Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary disorder that affects the lungs,pancreas, liver, kidneys and intestine. The disease can causebreathing difficulties as well as lung infections, sinus infectionsand poor growth. Enditem
MADRID, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Spanish number one Rafael Nadal qualified for the final of the Mutua Madrid Open on Saturday after defeating number two seed, Novak Djokovic, 6-2, 6-4 in their semifinal.
Djokovic went into the game fresher than the Spaniard after Kei Nishikori's wrist injury game him a bye in the quarter-final, but perhaps a day without competition effected his rhythm as he struggled to come with Nadal, who claimed the first set with few problems.
Nadal was made to work harder in front of a partisan crowd in the second set as the reigning champion dug deep to defend his title with pride. The Serb successfully defended two match points in the final match and even had a match-point before Nadal claimed the match and ended a run of seven successive defeats to Djokovic to set up his eighth final in Madrid.
"It was time for me to win, it has been a long time before I even won a set against Djokovic," said Nadal after his victory.
"It was a game where I had to play well. I played well in the first set and although I had a few nerves in the second, that was because I have not beaten him for so long," he commented.
"I know Novak has made some changes in his coaching staff and I am sure he is a rival who is going to battle for all of the major titles in the future," added Nadal who will now face either Pablo Cuevas or Domenic Thiem in Sunday's final.

MARIA Sharapova may have to wait until June 20 to see if she will be welcomed back to this year’s tournament at Wimbledon.
Sharapova, the 2004 champion at the All England Club, returned to the tour last week after serving a 15-month ban for doping and reached the semifinals in Stuttgart, leaving her ranked No. 262.
Sharapova is set to play two more tournaments, in Madrid and Rome, before the deadline for direct entry to Wimbledon qualifying. Deep runs at those events could earn her enough points to make the main draw, while she will also find out on May 16 if she gets a wildcard for the French Open.
Wimbledon chief executive Richard Lewis said yesterday there will be a meeting of the tournament’s tennis sub-committee on June 20, when it will be clear which players have been accepted into the main draw. Wimbledon begins on July 3, its latest start since 1895.
Andy Murray, the world’s top-ranked men’s player, said he expects Sharapova to be granted a wildcard if she needs one.
“But I’m sure they are hoping they don’t have to make the decision,” Murray said on Tuesday at the launch of the Queen’s Club tournament, a warm-up event for Wimbledon. “There’s a good chance that she can get in by right, which I’m sure is what she’s hoping for and that’s what Wimbledon would be hoping for.”
Also, All England Club chairman Philip Brook said two-time Wimbledon finalist Ilie Nastase will not be invited to the Royal Box on Centre Court.
The 70-year-old Romanian has been provisionally suspended by the International Tennis Federation following his comments about the skin color of the baby that Serena Williams is expecting and his foul-mouthed outbursts during a recent Fed Cup match between Romania and Britain.
There will be a 12.5 percent increase in total prize money, up to 31.6 million pounds (US$40.80 million).
The winners of the singles titles will each win 2.2 million pounds, a 10 percent increase from 2016.
