3 days without sleep

Hi Doc,
My fiancee goes some times three days without sleep.
Surely this is unhealthy. Does this kind of behaviour do any damage.
Thanks
Steve

Yes, it is unhealthy. After only 19 hours without sleep, one is not in a fit condition to be safely behind the wheel of a car. It becomes impossible to work accurately, and numerous other functions are also affected. However, once the problem is resolved, the complications seem to disappear.
