Continuation of the discussion from ASTRO OASIS TV program ‘Bismillah Ad-duha’.
Microsleep affects rate of motor accidents.
- poor sleep at night
- types of work (e.g. shift work)
Affects everyone but main cause is lack of sleep or Obstructive Sleep Apnea, sleep deprivation from medication
Microsleep happens because the body is trying to catch up on sleep.
