Catching up on lost sleep a dangerous illusion

New research shows the effects of chronic sleep loss.

People who are chronically sleep-deprived may think they’re caught up after a 10-hour night of sleep, but new research shows that although they’re near-normal when they awake, their ability to function deteriorates markedly as night falls. Some studies show that almost 30% of Americans get less than six hours of sleep at night. The research indicates that the body’s daily circadian rhythm hides the effects of chronic sleep loss and gives such people a second wind between about 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., when the circadian rhythm is pushing them to be awake. – From USA Today
