RESIDENTS (& faculty) GET YOUR REST!!
The American Academy of of Sleep Medicine has developed a program called Safety, Alertness and Fatigue, Education in Residency (SAFER) designed to help residents educate themselves on the dangers of sleep deprivation and tips to help prevent and manage fatigue.  
Brief points from the learning module:
1) Recognize sleep deprivation. If it is hindering you from safe patient care please call us. 
2) Caffeine- can be helpful but limit use 3-4 hours prior to sleeping as it can disrupt your sleep rhythm. 
2) Exercise: Stretch, run in place, or do jumping jacks. Walk briskly from house to car, car to hospital
3) Light: Best: full spectrum light (e.g.sunlight) Any bright light helps.

If you are sleep deprived, some tips on how to recover:
A) Optimize your sleep environment – Cool, dark, quiet
B) Practice good sleep hygiene – Pre-sleep relaxation, reduce alerting
stimuli, make bed a cue for sleep.
