INTRODUCTION Crewmembers on ultra long-range commercial flights have the opportunity for rest and sleep in onboard areas in which the barometric pressure is 75.3 kPa (565 mmHg) or higher, equivalent to a terrestrial altitude of 2438 m (8000 ft) or lower. Sleep at higher altitudes is known to be disturbed, resulting in postsleep neurobehavioral performance decrements. We investigated the effects of sleep at 2438 m on oxygen saturation, heart rate, sleep quantity, sleep quality, postsleep… CONTINUE READING
