Shift work sleep disorder

Shift work sleep disorder (SWSD) is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder characterized by insomnia and excessive sleepiness affecting people whose work hours overlap with the typical sleep period. There are numerous shift work schedules, and they may be permanent, intermittent, or rotating; consequently, the manifestations of SWSD are quite variable.

National Night Shift Worker’s Day is held on the second Wednesday in May. On this day we honor those who work through the night while the rest of the world sleeps. We honor those members of our community who stay awake and keep everything running smoothly. We honor our military, our firefighters, our police officers, our emergency physicians, construction workers, amongst many, many others.
