One night of no sleep:
Impairs movement and focus, comparable to having a blood alcohol level of .10%. You may be more likely to misinterpret neutral faces. And long-term potentiation, believed to be crucial for memory formation, is significantly impaired.
Two nights of no sleep:
Your oxygen intake lowers. And your anaerobic power decreases. You may start to stumble and forget the words you’re trying to say.
Three nights of no sleep:
It becomes more difficult to concentrate on uninteresting tasks. You become more easily agitated. Your heart rate increases. In 2015, a man died from heart failure after staying for for three days straight.
Four nights of no sleep:
Your brain begins to fall asleep while you are still awake. These microsleeps can last between 5 and 10 seconds. You may start hallucinating and experience a “hat-phenomenon,” where you feel pressure around your head.
Five nights of no sleep:
Thinking and problem-solving skills are significantly lowered. You may get the feeling that someone is out to get you.
Six nights of no sleep:
Sleep deprivation psychosis sets in and you can no longer interpret reality.
There’s good new though…this is all preventable. You just need to go to sleep.
