Título

EFFECTS OF EXCESSIVE DAY SLEEPING AND INFLAMMATION ON EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS IN HEALTH WORKERS

Introdução

Free unsaturated fatty acids are elevated in the systemic circulation in overweight/obese humans; and that tissues with unsaturated lipid characteristics may be associated with the synthesis of prostaglandins, which are precursors of the inflammatory process, increase the consumption of adenosine triphosphate and are potent sleep-inducing humoral factors and slow down the cortical processing of information, including executive functions, especially memory. Being excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) it can be defined as an increase in the propensity to sleep in inappropriate circumstances, affecting professional, family and social activities.

Objetivo

To relate measures of inflammation and working memory (OM) with daytime sleepiness in health workers.

Métodos

To relate measures of inflammation and working memory (OM) with daytime sleepiness in health workers.
METHODOLOGY: Cross-sectional, quantitative, prospective research, being part of the doctoral thesis, whose CAAE number is 33140620.6.0000.8050. Twenty-four individuals participated in this sample, with a mean age of 36.5 years ±5.8. Of these, 50% of the sample (n=12) had an exclusively day shift and the rest mixed shift (night and day). The Epwort sleepiness scale was used to assess EDS, to assess peripheral inflammation, ultrasensitive C-reactive protein (CRP) was used, and to assess executive functions (working memory) the digit spam test (order) was used. direct and reverse).

Resultados

There was a negative Spearman correlation between direct order digit spam and inflammation (p<0.05). To assess the relationships between inflammation, OM and EDS, linear regression was used, obtaining p < 0.0001 between the variables. There was no statistical relationship established between the type of working hours, MO and SDE.

Conclusões

EDS influences working memory performance, and the biochemical measurement of inflammation is an important component to understand the relationships.
