Abstract

Sleep deprivation is common among residents. It contributes to daytime sleepiness and exhaustion that causing deterioration of productivity. This condition may affect their motor performance. As a consequence, sleep deprivation can increase the risk of human error among physician. This study aimed to evaluate the correlation between sleep deprivation and motor skill in night shift residents. We conducted a cross-sectional study in DR. M. Djamil hospital, Padang between July to August 2016. A total of 51 residents were recruited, related to night shift one day before the study. Those with chronic illness, consuming sedative drugs, and visual impairment was excluded. The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) was used to examine the duration of sleep in sleep-deprived subjects, and motor skills were evaluated using the Purdue Pegboard Test. The relationship between variables was analyzed using Kendall’s Tau b correlation, and p-value <0.05 was considered as statistically significant. The mean of sleep duration was 2.37+ 0.894 hours. The mean of Purdue Pegboard Test was 20.14 seconds on the right, 18.63 seconds on the left, and 15.61 seconds on both hands respectively. There was no correlation between sleep deprivation and motor performance of right hand (p=0.737), left hand (p= 0.541), nor in both hands (p= 0.400). There was a significant correlation between sleep deprivation and motor performance of both hands in night shift residents
