Abstract: Objective: To assess sleep quality and association of body mass index with quality of sleep among post graduate resident doctors of various departments working at a Tertiary Care Centre. Methodology: This is a cross-sectional study with sample of 75 postgraduate residents working in various departments of RD Gardi Medical College, Ujjain (M.P.). The Questionnaire Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) were applied for assessment of quality of sleep and excessive daytime sleepiness respectively. Chi-square test was applied to evaluate and analyze the results. Results: A total of 75 responses were obtained, of which 46(61%) showed poor sleep quality on PSQI. There were no significant differences in mean PSQI values between male and female residents. 41% of the students were found to have high BMI. There was no association found between PSQI and BMI among the post graduate residents. Among 3rd year residents 80% have poor quality of sleep comparative to 1st & 2nd year with significant value (P= 0.0023). Discussion: The post graduate residents who go to bed early (before 10pm) were found to have good quality sleep, and the results were statistically significant (P = 0.013). A significant association was seen with those who spend more than 85% of time in the sleep of the total time in bed (P= 0.007) had good sleep quality, suggesting relationship of sleep quality with sleep habits. Conclusion: Overall poor quality of sleep and EDS (Excessive daytime sleepiness) was observed in post graduate residents. Prevalence of raised BMI is seen high in residents which may prepone the incidence of various metabolic and chronic illnesses in them.
