Sleep issues in aviation and space
Contribution to a Book
Encyclopedia of Sleep and Circadian Rhythms: Volume 1-6, Second Edition
This article describes the factors that cause sleep issues in aviation and spaceflight. There are many causes of sleep disruption that are common to both domains, including, irregular schedules, circadian misalignment, and inadequate sleep environment. There are also factors that are unique to each type of operation that may lead to the manifestation of sleep disorders among these populations. Each of these factors, and their subsequent impact on sleep, are reviewed in this article.
