Abstract
In this paper, the results from a field study on the influence of ventilation rate on the sleep pattern are presented. The testgroup was asked to sleep in their normal sleeping environment (student dorms) in order to cause as little disruption in the normal pattern as possible. For the same reason, actigraphy was used to measure sleep patterns since this is one of the least disturbing measurement techniques available. The student dorms were selected as a location because all rooms are identical and basic conditions are therefore very similar for all the participants in the study. The participants were also asked to fill out a number of questionnaires to determine their general attitude towards sleep and to get an idea of their subjective appreciation of the sleep quality experienced over the test period. The results show only a very small effect of the ventilation rate on the sleep pattern.
