To analyze sleep quality and psychological stress levels among medical students from a private institution in the city of Belém.
An observational, cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical study of 120 medical students from a private Northern educational institution. About 15 students from each semester were selected. This number was chosen by estimating the researchers between the size of each class and the applicability of the questionnaires to the population. Information was collected through the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and the translation of the Perceived Stress Scale.
Primary school students, especially those in the first and second semester, showed, with a high percentage (1st semester 71%, n = 10 / 2nd semester 78%, n = 11), that they were unexpectedly sad and feeling stressed. and nervous (1st and 2nd semester 50%, n = 7) and feel that they cannot overcome the difficulties faced daily in 50% of respondents. At the end of the basic cycle, which covers the third and fourth semester, the difference between the statements is remarkable: according to the interviewees, part of the students reports that they will never be able to overcome the difficulties encountered, while another part shows that The percentage of nervousness and stress decreased, which can be explained by the better organization acquired over time. Regarding the clinical cycle (from the fifth to the eighth semester), most students report that they consider their sleep quality to be good, and report that they can control daily situations even if they sometimes get out of control. In addition, especially in the eighth semester, students pointed out that they are dealing positively with the changes that happen in their lives, can control irritations and do not feel that daily situations are beyond their control.
These students, who are constantly being charged by themselves, their families and the college itself, end up falling asleep to be able to fulfill their academic activities, since the amount of content charged is extensive.
