Charles Glaubitz illustrates sleep disorders for the University of Chicago

Charles Glaubitz did this illustration for a recent issue of the University of Chicago magazine.  The article was on sleep disorders, and below is what Charles came up with.  Charles submitted another sketch on a slightly different concept, which wasn’t chosen for publication.  However, he liked the idea so much that he decided to complete the final art for himself anyway – see the Sleep Owl Machine illo at the bottom of post.  We think they’re both super cool!

    Hypopnea can occur during sleep. In this case it may turn into a serious sleeping disorder. Sleep hypopnea can be characterized by person’s repetitive stops of breathing or low breathing for short periods of time during sleep. Speaking in anatomical terms, there is intermittent collapse of the upper airway and reductions in blood oxygen levels during sleep. Thus, a sleeping person becomes incapable to breathe normally and awakens with each collapse. Quantity and quality of sleep is lowered, what results in sleep deprivation and excessive daytime sleepiness. The most usual physiological consequences of hypopnea are cognitive disfunction, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, hypertension, memory loss, heart attack, stroke, impotence, psychiatric problems. People suffering from sleep hypopnea increase considerably the overall number of traffic accidents. Their productivity is diminished and they have constant emotional problems and strains. ;
