Operational Ground Testing Protocol to Optimize Astronaut Sleep Medication Efficacy and Individual Effects

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Operational Ground Testing Protocol to Optimize Astronaut Sleep Medication Efficacy and Individual Effects
As of July 3, 2014, data collection has been completed for 29 participants, with each participant completing testing across three nights at the Astronaut Quarantine Facility at NASA Johnson Space Center. Data collection for the remaining five participants is expected to be completed by August 29, 2014. The next phase of the study will include data analysis and drafting the final report. It is anticipated that data analysis will be completed by the end of the calendar year, with a report submitted to NASA by February 28, 2015. The results of this study will inform medical operations regarding individualized protocols for testing sleep medications, as well as informing countermeasure implementation for future exploration missions.
