Ten nurses have been studied for a period of about ten days during which they had rest days and between two and seven successive night shifts. Rectal temperature and wrist movement were monitored throughout, and the nurses kept an activity log. The process of adjustment to night work was assessed by comparing shifts in body temperature with those in mid-sleep, using the mean of the values during rest days as a control in both cases. When raw temperature data were used, the measured shifts were… CONTINUE READING
