Circadian desynchronization (Jet Lag) was a cause of several aircraft accidents over the years. While the exact cause of these accidents was hard to pinpoint, many of them were linked to human error.

Lag: A Look at Circadian Desynchronization focuses on stress that results from jet lag, shift work, and fatigue in aviation. Many of the principles included here transfer over to other industries like commercial overland transportation, law enforcement, and healthcare. How much does fatigue cost you? Only the reader will know, but factors that can influence the costs were discussed in this book. Some interventions intended to help lower the cost of fatigue are included, as well.


TABLE OF CONTENTS:

  • Behind the Lag

From the Back Cover

The body is fascinating: Behind the scenes the autonomic nervous system is usually quietly working to keep things regulated. Disruptions to our natural rythms can have some implications though. The effects of jet lag and shift lag are discussed in this book. Also discussed are interventions that can help to reduce some of the stress that the body experiences. With so many risks and so few benefits, there is no reason not to look at the schedule you keep. Even if variations are part of your life, there are steps you can take to reduce the chance that jet lag will be a problem for you.
