Abstract : Sleep is an essential physical need, like food, air, and water. You can skimp on it only to a point and still function. You will only perform and feel your best if you get an optimum amount of sleep. When operational requirements make this impossible, it is critical that you obtain the maximum amount of sleep possible within operational limitations. Also, it important that you know the effects of sleep deprivation so that countermeasures can be used to compensate. The purpose of this manual is to provide naval personnel with the basic facts about sleep and to teach them specific sleep management techniques.
