The idea was to reduce time in bed awake (improving sleep efficiency) and the associated frustration with forcing oneself to fall asleep, as well as sleep deprivation to enhance sleep inertia
You set a 10-, 20-, or 30-minute window, and the band senses when you're in the lightest part of your sleep cycle-when sleep inertia
is shortest-and wakes you up.
The issues related to sleep inertia
identified by the managers are a concern, particularly in dynamic and rapid-paced clinical environments.
2010) Effects of artificial dawn on sleep inertia

Under the effects of significant sleep inertia
(when performance and situational awareness are degraded immediately after waking up), the first officer perceived the oncoming aircraft as being on a collision course and began a descent to avoid it," Canada's Transportation Safety Board said.

core temperature and hormones), sleep inertia

For example, naps that last longer than 20 to 30 minutes can lead to a condition called sleep inertia
, a slowing of activity in the brain's decision-making prefrontal cortex characterized by impaired alertness, grogginess and a decline in motor performance.
This is because your body has entered a normal sleep cycle, and ending it abruptly causes a condition called sleep inertia
, where the napper can feel even groggier than before.
In addition to the balance problems caused by Zolpidem, the study also showed that waking up after two hours of sleep after taking Zolpidem enhances sleep inertia
, or grogginess, a state that temporarily impairs working memory.
is a powerful force, Boone says, and while humans can temporarily hold it at bay, eventually they succumb to its force.
With reference to athletic training, immediate performance after waking from a longer sleep bout (>60 minutes) might result in short-term performance impairments due to sleep inertia
Time course of sleep inertia
dissipation in human performance and alertness.
