Sleep deprivation in healthy volunteers is associated with immune dysfunction. This adverse effect of sleep deprivation likely occurs in patients suffering from acute injury and critical illness requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission. Studies have demonstrated that sleep in ICU patients is highly abnormal. The global hypothesis for this proposal is that a strategy to promote sleep in ICU patients will increase time in rapid eye movement (REM) and slow wave sleep (SWS). This three phase proposal examines the feasibility of a sleep promotion strategy for injured and critically ill patients in the ICU.
Phase I (Development and Training): Develop an intervention manual for sleep promotion, Sleep Enhancement Program (SEP), and train ICU staff.
Phase II (Validation and Safety): Implement SEP and test for protocol fidelity and safety.
Phase III (Efficacy): Conduct a pilot trail to determine efficacy of SEP to improve SWS in ICU patients.

The purpose of this study is to determine if the enhancement of electroencephalographic (EEG) slow-wave activity using transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) at Slow Oscillation (SO) fr...
In this study the investigators plan to systematically characterise infra-slow EEG oscillations during sleep, explore their relationship to the microstructure of sleep, and investigate its...
The aims of this study are examine the effects of sleep deprivation in muscle recovery after a maximum eccentric resistance exercise session performed on an isokinetic dynamometer (24 seri...
To examine changes in functional connectivity of the default mode network (DMN) that are induced by sleep deprivation, and to identify individual differences that contribute to the vulnerability of th...
Sleep deprivation significantly reduces the ability to maintain a consistent alertness level and impairs vigilant attention. Previous studies have shown that longer inter-stimulus intervals (ISI) are ...
To our knowledge, the influence of sleep deprivation on hearing levels has yet to be assessed in animals. Therefore, we evaluated whether auditory function was affected by sleep deprivation in rats.
Sleep plays an intricate role in epilepsy and can affect the frequency and occurrence of seizures. With nearly 35% of U.S. adults failing to obtain the recommended 7 h of sleep every night, understa...
Sleep is critical for proper development and neural plasticity. Moreover, abnormal sleep patterns are characteristic of many neurodevelopmental disorders. Studying how chronic sleep restriction during...
Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
The state of being deprived of sleep under experimental conditions, due to life events, or from a wide variety of pathophysiologic causes such as medication effect, chronic illness, psychiatric illness, or sleep disorder.
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep. (From Chokroverty, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, pp319-20; Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 1998 Apr:52(2):125-129)
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
