Shift work sleep disorder (swsd) is a condition that affects people who work rotating or irregular shifts, such as night shifts, early morning shifts, or rotating shifts. The disruption of a person's natural sleep-wake cycle can lead to difficulty falling asleep and staying awake during work hours, and can result in excessive daytime sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, and an increased risk of accidents. Clinical sleep educators can help individuals with swsd understand the impact of their work schedule on their sleep and develop strategies for improving their sleep habits.
