The utmost potential danger one could encounter from taking a bath without any sleep is that they may end up falling asleep in the tub. Other than that, taking a bath is something that is deemed to be relaxing and beneficial to the human body.

  • What are the chances?

The odds of somebody drowning whilst inadvertently falling asleep in the bath tub are incredibly slim. However - most people will have experienced the sensation of skin going wrinkly if it has been submerged in the water for a prolonged period of time.

Some people may argue that the grogginess and fatigue felt from not having sleep could make a person less alert and as a result more careless. In an environment like the bathroom, this could be dangerous because the surfaces are often slippy, and underestimating water temperatures could result in burning/scalding of skin

  • Myths dispelled

There appears to be a rumor that taking a bath without any sleep could be potentially damaging to the eyes. Generally, this does not appear to be the case. As we are not an authorized medical establishment, any concerns regarding the legitimacy of these rumors should be taken up with a professional doctor.

Other than that, taking a bath is a fantastic way to let the human body relax and unwind. The hot water is particularly soothing for the muscles and will often help people feel sleepy and ready for bed. In combination with some bath salts or scented candles, the bath tub could be a great way to help someone who may be struggling to sleep get themselves in a calm and relaxed state.

If by duty you mean job then you can get tablets to wake you up for the right amount of time in the day, so you can work odd hours. Shift work sleep disorder or something.

But yes, it's unhealthy not to sleep the right amount of time.

Yes you can skip the odd night of sleep without any ill effects other than tiredness the day after (Meds like modafinil are useful here.)

Don't stay awake longer than 30 or so hours consecutively at least a 4 hour block of sleep.
