Anesthesiologists Are Screwed

Friendly Workplace Linked To Longer Life, New York Times.

"Researchers at Tel Aviv University found that people who felt that they had the support of their colleagues and generally positive social interactions at work were less likely to die over a 20-year period than those who reported a less friendly work environment. Over all, people who believed they had little or no emotional support in the workplace were 2.4 times as likely to die during the course of the study compared with the workers who developed stronger bonds with their peers in other cubicles."

Mortality Rates Among Swedish Physicians: A Population-Based Nationwide Study With Special Reference To Anesthesiologists, Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica.

"Anesthesiologists had a 46% higher mortality rate and pediatricians a 24% lower mortality rate than other specialist groups; both deviations being statistically significant. All other specialities had a mortality risk within the expected range. Anesthesiologists tended to have higher rates than other specialists for most underlying causes of death."

Anesthesiologists are screwed.
