Promoting Physician Wellness: Management of Physician’s Fatigue, Sleep Deprivation and Other Conditions that Contribute to Physician Impairment

Miami, FL US
June 21, 2018

With the growing attention paid to resident duty hours, there is an increasing need for research involving fatigue and practical ways to measure it. This study shows that residents who are measurably fatigued (both objectively and subjectively) may have difficulty utilizing vestibular input during quiet standing but can compensate by means of somatosensory and visual input.
