CONCLUSIONS: Poor sleep quality in TBI cohorts may be due to the influence of multiple factors. Military/veteran samples had poorer sleep quality compared to civilians even in the absence of TBI, possibly reflecting unique stressors associated with prior military experiences and the sequelae of these stressors or other physical and/or psychological traumas that combine to heightened vulnerability. These findings suggest that military service members and veterans with TBI are particularly at a higher risk of poor sleep and its associated adverse health outcomes. Additional research is needed to identify potential exposures ...
