Abstract Continuous chart recordings of night sleep in 22 patients with chronic occupational intoxication by narcotic substances (low-molecular unsaturated hydrocarbons and their chlorine derivatives - ethylene, propylene, vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene) and in 8 subjects with chronic methyl methacrylate poisoning showed disturbed sleep patterns. In the early stage of intoxication the disturbance was largely due to physical activation changes, and in the later stage to tonic ones.
