Adverse Effects of Daylight Saving Time on Adolescents' Sleep and Vigilance
Sleep Disorders, Circadian Rhythm

Larger scale evaluations of sleep impairments related to DST are needed to further quantify this problem in the population. If confirmed, measures to attenuate sleep loss post-DST should be implemented.
