The study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial. The measures included an objective computer-based vigilance test and a series of subjective questionnaires.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Dimensions of Critical Care Nursing, 25(3), p. 130-136||Publisher:||Lippincott Williams & Wilkins||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1538-8646
