The sleep outcomes for the iCOMPARE study are not yet available. A small study that we performed in 2010 (Kamine TH, Barron RJ, Lesicka A., et al., Effects of the new Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education work hour rules on surgical interns: a prospective study in a community teaching hospital. Am J Surg 2013 205 (2), 163-8) showed that interns on a night float schedule were significantly more tired than those on a Q4 schedule (using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale). We hypothesized that this was a result of exchanging an acute post-call sleep debt for a chronic sleep debt. Did you find any difference in sleepiness between the two groups, and if so, what do you think may have contributed?
