Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Stress is a natural aspect of life and can be characterized as mental, emotional, or bodily strain or tension. Humans need stress to perform at their best, but unnecessary, extended stress is eventually unsustainable and, over time, may cause an individual's mental and physical health to deteriorate. The neurosurgical operating room (OR) is a challenging workplace where the team typically cares for critically ill patients who are hemodynamically and neurologically unstable. In a neurosurgical operating room, where the surgeon works on the brain and different arteries and nerves nearby, operating room hours are also lengthy. The neuro-anesthesiologist is often alert and prepared to handle any emergency, which is unsettling and draining. Burnout can result from the delivery of critical care because it causes physical, psychological, and emotional weariness in the healthcare professional.
