Overnight Call and Cognitive Functioning: Will Tablet-Based Assessment Be the Solution for Safety Check in Residents?

Arora, H., Chen, F., Martinelli, S. M.
(Abstracted from J Clin Anesth, 40:123–124, 2017) Sleep deprivation and circadian rhythm disruption in overnight call residents cause cognitive function deficits and increase workplace accidents, causing increased rates of patient care errors. Williams et al1 (“Sensorimotor and Executive Function Slowing in Anesthesiology Residents After Overnight Shifts”) evaluated the slowing of sensorimotor and executive function following a single overnight call shift compared with a routine daytime shift using 2 tablet-based pointing tasks in anesthesiology residents.
