9788847053878: Sleepiness and Human Impact Assessment

The World Health Organization supports tools and initiatives in Health Impact Assessment to dynamically improve health and well-being across different sectors. Human Impact Assessment (HuIA) is a relatively new concept. It describes an integrated process that encompasses both Health Impact Assessment and Social Impact Assessment and is used to anticipate the effects of programs, projects and decisions on human health and welfare. Sleep occupies approximately one-third of our lives, but its human impact remains largely unrecognized. The prevalence of excessive sleepiness is recognized to be increasing in industrialized societies. Without doubt, sleepiness and fatigue have high costs in terms of both lives lost and socioeconomic impact. For example, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that up to 4% of all fatal crashes are caused by drowsy drivers and that as many as 100,000 deaths per year in the United States may be due to fatigue-related medical errors.

Sleepiness and Human Impact Assessment provides a uniquely comprehensive exploration of many different facets of sleepiness in our 24-hour society from the new HuIA point of view. Among the covered issues are the physiology and pathophysiology of sleep, its relationship to daytime alertness, fatigue and drugs, the relevance of sleep-related fatigue in various occupational settings and public safety. This book will be of assistance to physicians, occupational health professionals, ergonomists, researchers and decision-makers as they strive to understand the full significance of sleepiness and to create a culture of accountability in everyday life without sleep-related risks.

Review:

From the book reviews:

“This is a comprehensive analysis of sleepiness in a 24-hour society from the perspective of a new WHO concept of Human Impact Assessment. ... The audience includes physicians, occupational health professionals, researchers, and policy makers. ... This is a timely contribution to the field of sleep medicine. It examines sleepiness from the perspective of Human Impact Assessment and will help guide therapeutic decisions for practitioners and formulation of social and public health policies by decision makers.” (M. Isabel L. Crisostomo, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2014)
