SLEEP QUALITY IN MEDICAL GRADUATION: ACADEMIC PERCEPTION FROM A NORTH BRAZIL INSTITUTION
The change in the student scenario from high school to higher education, experienced by several medical freshmen, is permeated by countless doubts. It is considered the most critical period of adaptation and change, as teaching in medical schools requires the student's full-time effort and dedication to compromise their physical and psychosocial well-being. In this sense, the difficulty in facing stress and anguish situations, as well as the lack of a well-prepared family and institutional basis are factors that can directly affect the quality of life and sleep of these medical students and even predispose them to physical, mental illness. or social.
To evaluate the sleep quality of medical students from a private higher education institution located in the northern region of Brazil.
Observational, descriptive and analytical study, where individuals from the eight initial periods of medical school of a private educational institution in Belém / PA were surveyed. The self-answering WHOQOL-bref questionnaire was used, which presents four research domains: physical, psychological, social relationship and environment, as well as a general domain related to quality of life and health. The research focused on the physical domain, specifically the analysis of students' sleep and rest quality.
The study included 398 medical students attending the first to eighth semester of the course, 236 (65.8%) female and 136 (34.2%) male. In a broad context, the physical domain for both sexes had lower quality scores in the 3rd and 7th semesters, while in the 1st and 6th they were higher on average. Summing the general values of physical domain, students have an average of 2.05 (median quality). As for the quality of sleep and rest, the students obtained an overall average of 3.1, considering higher values in the 1st semester (value = 3.4) and 8th semester (value = 3.5) generating the highest possible value of 70%. of satisfaction with sleep. The worst rates correspond to the 7th and 3rd semester, with values of 2.7 and 2.8 respectively, generating a value of 55% of satisfaction.
Therefore, this research was fundamental to recognize that the student loses quality of sleep during the first 8 periods of medical school, recognizing that the 7th and 3rd period of curing are the moments that have lower quality of sleep and rest when compared to too much.
