Abstract

Adequate sleep is a basic requirement for good health. Adults generally require 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Sleep deprivation is associated with a decreased ability to perform tasks controlled by the frontal lobe, such as planning, concentration, motor performance, and high-level intellectual skills. Constant poor-quality sleep can also cause excessive daytime sleepiness, depression, and immune function compromise. In addition, continued sleep disruption has been associated with an increased risk for mortality.
