Nature and Context

Lack of sleep due to night terrors and anxiety is a major problem for those trying to recover from PTSD. This exacerbates the problem as sleep is key to healing any ailment. It is known that an increased heart rate is an indicator of an upcoming night terror attack, so monitoring and changing heart rate could help ensure those with PTSD are getting more sleep.
