Nodding off at the wheel, dozing off into another world of perception only for a few moments - with serious consequences. A truck accident. Emergency staff reports from the harsh reality... Yet, other occupations, too, face the problems of monotonous work and fatigue and the associated increased risk of accident. What are "natural sleep patterns', how much sleep do we need? And what health risks and other hazards do you expose, if natural need for sleep is not taken seriously? Sleep medical specialists explain in a simple way the interrelations. However, anyone must detect signs of drowsiness early and take responsibility and action for themselve.
