Sleep and Sleepiness in Insomnia Phenotypes of Shift Work Disorder

by Valentina Gumenyuk, Ph.D.

This study found that among employees that work overnight hours, there is a higher amount of people who may suffer from symptoms of insomnia and/or excessive sleepiness. The circadian mismatch between working “night” hours and sleeping during the day may contribute to the global problem with workers that have non-typical work schedules. Specifically, the study is demonstrating that insomnia in night workers is related to “brain hyperarousal,” a condition found to be similar in individuals who work during the day who experience symptoms of physiological insomnia and the inability to sleep normally. There is scientific evidence of the study supporting that night workers who suffer insomnia will not sleep well even during their nights off from work.

The conclusion of this study is that insomnia alone should be treated as the brain hyperarousal condition. Traditional sleeping medications may not assist in targeting the core of the problem – the inability to sleep and maintain generally well-being. read full study ›
