24-hour ER shifts linked to cognitive impairment in physicians
from HealthLeaders Media
Recently published research shows the cognitive abilities of emergency room physicians were significantly impaired after working a 24-hour shift. The researchers, who published their work in this month's edition of the Annals of Emergency Medicine, gauged the cognitive function of 40 ER physicians after a night of rest at home, after a 14-hour shift, and after a 24-hour shift.
