International Nursing: A Study of Sleep Quality Among Nurses and Its Correlation With Cognitive Factors

The objective of this study was to evaluate sleep quality and its relationship to cognitive factors among nurses. Sleep quality among nurses is an important issue, which requires more extensive study. Its correlation with cognitive ability has not been sufficiently considered. Five hundred forty nurses (66.3% female) working in 6 hospitals were selected as the sample of the study. Results show that nurses do not experience good quality of sleep. That is, 77.4% of the sample population of nurses have a poor quality of sleep, and nurses working the night shift have more sleep problems than other nurses. The results show that there is a relationship between dysfunctional beliefs and attitudes about sleep and metacognitive process and the quality of sleep, and that these variables can predict sleep quality. Based on the results of the study, it can be said that cognitive and metacognitive processes play an important role in sleep quality. Lack of sufficient sleep can create numerous problems for nurses and patients. Attention to the role of cognitive and metacognitive processes can help improve the sleep quality of nurses.

This study aimed to determine factors that may influence levels of daytime sleepiness and fatigue in a large cohort of DM1 patients followed for 9 years.MethodsThis study included 115 patients with DM1 at baseline (Time 1,T1) and at Time 2 (T2) who were questioned for daytime sleepiness, fatigue, history of depression, psychological distress, pain, hypothyroidism, and sleep habits. Also, their muscular impairment and intellectual quotient were evaluated. Regression models were used to identify correlates of daytime sleepiness and fatigue while controlling for time effect.ResultsBoth daytime sleepiness and fatigue incr...

AbstractBackgroundBoth REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) and impulsive –compulsive behaviors (ICBs) are well-recognized non-motor features in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Studies have given contradictory results about the potential association between RBD and ICBs.MethodsPubMed, Embase (via Ovid), and the Cochrane Central Registry of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) databases were systematically searched till August 20, 2019 to identify studies that explored the possible correlation between RBD and ICBs in patients with PD. Two authors independently screened records, extracted data and evaluated quality o...

You’d think after decades of an economy that depends on two incomes to float a family, that how a couple can work together to keep house would be common knowledge. You’d think. But old role definitions and stereotypes about who should do household chores die hard — very hard. Couples who see themselves as egalitarian and modern in their thinking are sometimes astonished to find themselves fighting regularly about such things as who should do the dishes, pick up the living room, and be sure that each has a clean shirt for tomorrow. Things have improved over the last 30 years. A survey by the Pew Research C...

This article presents an overview of studies that demonstrate that stress and dysregulated hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity, as measured by cortisol levels, are important additional risk factors for suicide. Evidence for other putative stress-related suicide risk factors including childhood trauma, impaired executive function, impulsivity and disrupted sleep are considered together with the impact of family history of suicide, perinatal and epigenetic influences on suicide risk.

Authors: Kulkarni K, Schow M, Shubrook JH Abstract In this highly digitalized era, sleep disorders are becoming more common and are associated with an increased burden of chronic disease. Shift workers are at an increased risk for both sleep disorders and metabolic syndrome. In this article, the authors outline the connection between circadian discordance, hormonal imbalance, and the development of metabolic syndrome in shift workers. Based on a literature review of animal model studies, observational studies, and clinical trials conducted between August and October of 2018, the authors offer several clinical inter...
