i think it depends on the person, i come from a long line of female insomniacs, most nights 4/5 hours if im lucky, the body just gets used to it in my opinion, so it is impossible to say how much sleep is needed as it obviously varies from person to person

you could never die primarily of lack of sleep. The only way you would die is if lack of sleep caused mental instability or lack of appetite then starvation or another secondary condition


trickster_travels
indefinately as long as you drink and eat

The Daily recomended amount of sleep per day for the average adult is 8 to 10 hours.

There are no documented cases of a healthy human dying from total sleep deprivation (excluding accidents), aside from those suffering from Fatal Familial Insomnia.

In carefully monitored experiments, several normal research subjects stayed awake for 10 days. While they all experienced cognitive deficits in memory, concentration, etc, none of them experienced serious medical, neurological, physiological or psychiatric problems. Total sleep deprivation in rats leads to death in around 28 days. Death occurs later if only REM sleep is eliminated. In humans, extended sleep deprivation causes microsleep sessions to develop. A person who has fatal familial insomnia may die after several months with no sleep at all; people without this condition may experience dementia or develop permanent personality changes within the first few weeks.

Obviously, scientists cannot ethically experiment how long it takes for lack of sleep to kill a person. As polyphasic sleepers get a lot of Stage 4 NREM and REM sleep, they may achieve higher alertness levels than those who do not practice the art of napping.

Actually, you would go insane before you died from lack of sleep. Then it would effect your heart, could be years.

Every person is different on how much sleep they need. Some people thrive on 5 hours sleep, some cannot function without 1-12 hours of sleep. What matters is how much deep sleep people get.

People with sleep apnea do not go into a deep sleep so it seems as if they are dreamimg all night, because when they quit breathing they get aroused (not fully awakened) and then doze back into REM (dream stage)..

This becomes a pattern through the night so they never get into deep sleep mode, which gives us the actual restful sleep we need.

we can not go without sleep, it will drive us mad. and if some one tries to poke you when you want to sleep as you mention, hit that crual person so hard, he won't dare to repeat it. you are entitled to enjoy your sleep as long as you need and want to, the need differs from person to person. i enjoy my noon siesta, i sleep atleast 6 to 7 hours at night, and if i haveslept well, nothing makes me more happy than that. i get damn irritated at people who dare to disturb, i can doze off while wathing a movie in a theatre or on t. v., but not while listening to a lecture, no, that offends, at the most excuse yourself. if you are working, youlose the chance to sleep in the noon, do it on weekends, enjoy the happiest world of peaceful slumber, nothing like it.

Ya can't die from being too tired eventually your body will just fall asleep.


psd1941
A child up to the age of one year can go without sleep only up to 6 hours per day. 1 to 3 years old, only for 12 hours. From 4 to 8 years he can go without sleeo only up to 14 hours. A boy from 9 to 25 years, he can go without sleep up to 16 hours. A young man from 25 to 40 years can live without sleep up to 17 hours. An adult 40 to 60 can live without sleep up to 18 hours. A man after 60 can enjoy sleep only for 5 to 6 hours, thus going without sleep up to 18 to 19 hours.

you will just fall asleep, you won't be able to control it. The max time you could be awake is 36 hours. Try it. You won't die! LOL

You cannot die from lack of sleep because one way or another you body will eventually sleep. After a certain point and it is different for all people you will go into something called micro sleep. It is where you body will shut down for a seconds at a time many times a day and most people don't even notice when this happens. It is also documented that all people after not sleeping for 100 hours will hallucinate. You need an average of 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.

Well here is something that not a lot of people know.To get the right sleep, and I mean a good and rest full sleep it is suggested to go to bed 2 hours before midnight.That is the best sleep.If you go to bed 2 hours before midnight you should sleep for 8 hours.And that should be plenty.Death will not come if you don't sleep.You will fall a sleep after about 48 hours. You won't be able to fight it.I don't suggest that you try that, it is not healthy.


hazyseptember
I've never heard of someone dying from lack of sleep unless they fell asleep at the wheel. The average person needs 8 hours, but like teenagers and babies need more because of growing. For a few days wake up with out an alarm and see how many hours you needed to feel refreshed. Then you will know, how much YOU need.


funlady6632
i need a lot of sleep...I think it's because I enjoy the dream world to the waking world...lol...Your body tells you how much sleep you need...it will shut down when necessary...As for the sharp stick, I've had that happen and I just say..."Leave me alone, I'm not open for business till the morning"


barb
The number of hours that a person needs is different or everyone. For an adult, the average is 8 hours.

Lack of sleep wouldn't be the cause of death. Once that you get tired enough, you would just fall asleep.

Yeah, not sure about death via sleep loss. I can function properly on 4-5 hours of sleep consistently.

technically we need 8 hours of sleep with at LEAST 4 before the hour of midnight. Our minds go into what is called RELM and it is the deepest part of sleep, but it takes approximately 4 hours to get there. It is said then, that if you do the four light hours before midnight, then the 4 to 6 afterward, your day will be much more relaxed, you will be more awake, and then you will be on a schedule where it is easy to fall asleep the following night.

Personally, stick to a schedule...whether its 6 hours or 10. Don't change the hours all of the time. Try to go to bed at the same time (even if its 2 am) and get up at the same time, and I don't have a problem feeling over/under tired. Its the flip floppy hours that get me!

Sleep and rest is objective. It differs from one person to another. As long as you can function properly and normally and you feel that you sleep enough, then it is considered sufficient

for me i would say about 13 hours........


vc
ideally 8 hours. but doing it like 6-7 isn't bad at all.


darion m
At least 8hr


monkeymanelvis
I personally have stayed awake over 50 consecutive hours without any sleep. I have also stayed awake 120 hours with 4 one hour long sleeps (around one every 30 hours). I need 3 hours sleep a night but prefer 5.
There are some people who never sleep - they are medically abnormal and do not fit normal requirements in this regard, most of these people are also insane.
Most people need 5-10 hours per night and can go up to 30 hours without sleep.


prettyinpink
We need at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night, not sure about the amount of lack of sleep before death, that's a little strange for me.
