Objective: To determine the relationship between fatigue and
sleep quality in medical students.
Materials and Methods: We applied a sociodemographic
characteristics questionnaire, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index
(PSQI) and Piper Fatigue Scale (PFS) to 4th, 5th and 6th year medical
students.
Results: Thirty seven percent (n=290) of 4th, 5th and 6th year
medical students were included in the study. Mean age was
23.47±1.33 years, 53.8% were male. Alcohol use was determined
at a level of 40.3% (n=117), nutrition-drug usage at 40.7% (n=118),
and smoking at 19% (n=55). Additionally, 86.2% of the participants
(n=250) preferred to sleep in the dark, 37.9% (n=110) thought that
drinks they used before going to bed partially affected their sleep
quality. PSQI score was 10.56±2.54 (min:5-max:19), 98.6% of
the participants had poor sleep quality. There was no significant
relationship between the students’ academic years and sleep
quality. PFS was 2.85±0.83(min:1-max:5), and 79%(n=229) had
mild fatigue. A statistically significant relationship was determined
between PSQI and PFS scores (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Although a large proportion of participants had
bad sleep quality, level of fatigue was mild. We determined a
significant relationship between levels of fatigue and sleep quality.
Arrangements should be made to improve poor sleep quality which
affects students’ quality of life. Fatigue levels that affect sleep
quality should also be reduced.
