La falta de sueño afecta habilidades cognitivas en anestesistas – MedPerts

Let sleeping anesthetists lie

Sleeping on the job is never a good idea, but with physicians there are of course significant concerns with respect to the safety of his or her patients. The present joint US-Canadian study investigated the effects of partial sleep deprivation on the clinical performance and the quality of patient care. In detail, they analyzed the effect of partial sleep deprivation on 21 pediatric anesthesiologists after a 17-h overnight call (3 pm-7 am) regarding mood status and cognitive skills, and compared the results to those during regular working hours. The outcome should serve as a wake-up call: Sleep deprivation affects the total mood status of anesthesiologists and, worryingly, also impacts their cognitive skills.
