Expert Testimony || Sleep Deprivation

Mark Rosekind,
National Traffic Safety Board,
under President Obama

“Not getting enough sleep impairs our work performance, increases the risk for injuries and makes it more difficult to get along with others. Without sufficient sleep it is more difficult to concentrate, make careful decisions and follow instructions, we are more likely to make mistakes or errors, and are more prone to being impatient and lethargic. Our attention, memory and reaction time are all affected. But while we may recognize these symptoms, we do not always associate them as being symptoms of sleep loss.”–Mark Rosekind, National Traffic Safety Board
