DELGADO MAIDANA, W; VEGA, Carduz; SANABRIA, L  e  FIGUEREDO THIEL, SJ. Prevalence of Burnout syndrome in anesthesiologists of Paraguay during 2010. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2011, vol.9, n.1, pp.13-20. ISSN 1812-9528.

ABSTRACT Burnout Syndrome is a type of occupational stress observed health professionals who keep direct and constant contact with other persons. To determine its prevalence in anesthesiologist in 2010, this cross-sectional descriptive study was carried out in 146 Paraguayan anesthesiologist using the Maslash Burnout Inventory. This instrument evaluates the dimensions of the syndrome. A global prevalence of BS 72.6% was found. In the group of resident physician we found a prevalence of 88.6% (x2= 8.14 P<0.005). The most frequent dimension was the emotional exhaustion (60.9%). The syndrome was more frequent in the anesthesiologsts under 35 years of age (83.1%; x2= 8.14 P<0.005). Having a stable partner was identified as a protective factor (x2= 3.77 P<0.05). No significant relation was found with sex and working places (public and private medicine). The prevalence of BS found was high in comparison to other studies. Being a resident physician, under 35 year old, not having a stable partner and overload of work are the factors most frequently found in the Burnout Syndrome in Paraguayan anesthesiologysts.
