Sergio Siano Speech Communications 11/4/11 Sleep Deprivation Introduction Many college students and individuals are suffering from a health problem that can be more detrimental to their health than some forms of cancer. What is it? Sleep Deprivation. People are losing sleep daily, in such a fashion that most have trouble staying awake during work, driving, or even in class. Sleep deprivation is a serious medical situation that can harm your everyday life.
I. Main Point 1: Bedtime noise has become a serious problem in college life. A. Subpoint 1: Bedtime noise will destroy students’ sleep. 1. Dorm room should be a quiet place during bedtime because students need enough sleep to relax their bodies and brains.
A main cause of sleep deprivation is the start times of middle schools and high schools. Most schools start so early in the morning making it nearly impossible for teens to get the recommended amount of sleep and still wake up in time for school. As a result, sleep deprivation creates challenges that affect the daily lives of students. Starting schools later in the morning is a crucial factor in improving the performance of students inside and outside of the classroom. To begin with, sleep is extremely influential to a person’s daily routine and health.
It’s also hard for me to wake up in the morning without an alarm clock, I struggle to get out of bed, and I hit my snooze button a lot of times. During the day I am very irritable, sleepy, stressed, I have trouble with focusing on things and remembering, I also have to take a nap just to get through the day and I have dark circles under my eyes. I agree with my results, I am very deprived of sleep and it is hard for me to sleep because my mind is always racing with thoughts. I can stay up for 24+ hours and then if I do fall asleep or take a nap I sleep no longer than 2-4 hours and I am right back up for hours. Steps I want to take to get more sleep would be to try and go to sleep at an earlier time.
With the price of college steadily increasing every year, students have less and less of a reason to sleep in class. Every minute that they spend snoozing is a minute wasted, especially if they end up not understanding the material when they get back home. There are two sides to the debate, however. Some students have a legitimate reason for falling asleep in class. For instance, if a student has spent all night writing a midterm paper or studying for a difficult test, then he or she might just accidentally fall asleep in class.
Between 16 and 35 years and between 35 and 50 years During infancy babies sleep more than everyone else and have different sleep patterns. They tend to sleep for around 16 hours a day but it is not continuous. They wake every hour due to a shorter sleep wake cycle than adults and their sleep stages consist of quiet sleep and active sleep: these are immature versions of SWS and REM sleep. By the time they have reached 6 months, a sleep-wake cycle is established with 1 or 2 naps during the day and as a result periods of sleep then lengthen. By the age of 5 children have an EEG pattern which is similar and looks like those of an adult but they are still sleeping more than adults with an approximate time of 12 hours in sleep and they also have more increase with approximately 30% of the total sleep time being in REM.
Chronic Fatigue or also known as cumulative can occur after delayed or incomplete recovery from transient fatigue, or a series of days with insufficient sleep. This tends to be a longer-term problem as there is usually a build-up of sleep debt. It usually has psychological roots. Continuous stain on your job, for example, can produce chronic fatigue. Causes of Pilot Fatigue • Inadequate sleep due to circadian or "biological clock" disruptions associated with rotating work and rest schedules and time zone transitions (shift lag and jet lag).
The Secret Weapon: Effects of Sleep Deprivation in Students Around a college campus, it is common to hear students talk of having to “pull an all-nighter” in order to study for a test or write a paper. Little do many students know, however, sleep is the secret for success and is highly necessary. According to a recent survey by the National Sleep Foundation, sixty-three percent of college students do not get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation has become a huge problem among many college campuses, although many do not address it as a problem. Rather, they focus on alcohol abuse and what they see as larger issues.

It is a drug that high school and college students take to boost their academic performance and their ability to study harder. The ''study drug'' which is also known as the medicine Ritalin and Adderall, and is normally used to cure ADD and ADHD, but is used by students in USA to increase their concentration, productivity and endurance.
