Accomplishments

Dr. Michael Lemke

Assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Science

Lemke, along with colleagues from Texas A&M University, Appalachian State University and Monash University in Australia, recently had an article titled “Can subjective sleep problems detect latent sleep disorders among commercial drivers?” published in Accident Analysis and Prevention, a top-ranked safety journal.

Long-haul truck drivers experience poor sleep health and heightened accident rates, and undiagnosed sleep disorders contribute to these negative outcomes. Using cross-sectional data from 260 long-haul truck drivers, five latent sleep disorder factors were extracted, and patterns of associations between these factors generally corresponded with known risk factors and symptoms. Further, one or more of the extracted latent sleep disorder factors were significantly associated with all the sleep health and safety outcomes. These findings suggest that using subjective sleep problems to detect latent sleep disorders among long-haul truck drivers may be a timely and effective way to screen this occupational segment.
