Resident Performance and Sleep Deprivation: A Review.
Asken, Michael J.; Raham, David C.
Journal of Medical Education, v58 n5 p382-88 May 1983
A review of the literature on resident performance and sleep deprivation suggests that current research is sparse and inconclusive, and existing research suggests potentially severe negative effects. It is proposed that justifications for sleep-depriving night call schedules remain untested, and their use as part of residency training should be reevaluated. (MSE)
