  1. The cost of sleep-related accidents : a reanalysis. Author's reply.

    Article - En anglais

    This journal published a special report titled « The Cost of Sleep-Related Accidents : A Report for the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research ».

    The report estimated that sleep-related accidents were annually associated with 23,318 fatalities, between 1,907,072 and 2,474,430 disabling injuries and costs between $43.15 billion and $56.02 billion.

    This paper reanalyzes the data base and assumptions underlying these estimates and concludes that they greatly overestimated the probable relationship between sleepiness and accidents.

    A more moderate estimate of this important relationship is proposed.
