Sleep Deprivation

5 JAN 07

Doctors don’t get much sleep. Residents and Interns get even less, and sometimes die while trying to drive home after little if any sleep while on-call. I once fell asleep at a traffic light after working for between 100 and 120 hours per week for an entire month.

The Army’s answer – MANDATORY SLEEP DEPRIVATION TRAINING.

I am right now headed to a one hour class on the terrors of a lack of sleep.

Did I mention that the mandatory class starts at 6:30 am?

You totally have to fall asleep during this class.
