ABSTRACT

Present work is a prospective cohort study that deciphers the alteration in stress marker and blood profile among trainee medicos during pre and post cardiac catherization procedure. Total 25 medicos were enrolled, only 10 were able to complete the criteria for the whole set of study, free from anxiety and were not on any medication before enrollment of study. Cortisol and white blood cells (WBC) count showed a significant difference in pre and post catherization procedures. Significant (P˂0.05) linear correlation was found between pre and post values for heart rate, WBC, electrolytes, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), cortisol, tri-iodothyronine, thyroxine, thyrotropin and Vit D in paired sample correlation. WBC counts measured before and after intervention were 5.81±1.12 and 5.19±0.98 respectively, which showed a significant fall in the WBC count and increase in cortisol after intervention. These alternations suggest to review and redesign the curricular or assigning duties to medicos under training.
