Sleep deprivation is the condition of sleep insufficiency being able to be chronic or acute. A limited acute state of sleep can cause fatigue, daytime drowsiness, awkwardness and weight loss or weight gain. And adversely affects the brain and cognitive function. Few studies have compared the effects of acute total lack of sleep and partial chronic lack of sleep. A complete absence of sleep for long periods of time has not been seen in humans (unless they suffer from fatal familial insomnia);
It seems that brief micro-dreams can not be avoided. Total long-term sleep deprivation has caused death in laboratory animals. Sleep deprivation in humans has been used as a treatment for depression. Its effects:
1. Main health effects of sleep deprivation
2. Generally, lack of sleep can cause
3. Pain in the muscles
4. Confusion, memory loss or memory lapses
6. Development of False Memories
7.Trembling in the hands 8. Headaches Different strategies are common trying to increase alertness and counteract the effects of sleep deprivation. Caffeine is often used for short periods to stimulate wakefulness when you suffer from acute lack of sleep; however, caffeine is less effective if it is routinely consumed. Other strategies recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine include prophylactic sleep before deprivation, nap, other stimulants, and combinations thereof.
However, the only sure and sure way to combat sleep deprivation is to increase your daily sleep time. Recovering cognitive function is achieved more quickly after acute total sleep deprivation than a partial chronic sleep restriction. Chronic deprivation is the most common in everyday life. With only one night's sleep recovery can reverse the adverse effects of total sleep deprivation. Sleep recovery is more efficient than normal sleep with less sleep latency and increases the amount of deep sleep and REM sleep.
