Salivary Alpha Amylase for Exposing the Nurse Workplace Stress

February 19, 2021 Medicine and Medical Science 0

It is hard to control stress when stress is part of the work environment, which can cause persistent violence, and which in turn affects the health and capacity of a person to act. The link between the nurses’ occupational stressors, physical and mental health improvements has been discovered. The major causes of occupational stress among nursing staff have been described as a combination of high workplace expectations, over-responsibility, and over-authority. A total of 473 nurses from the four Mongolian tertiary referral hospitals participated in the study. To find out how nurses interpret and tolerate stress, we used a Job Stress Profile (WSP) questionnaire by Rice. The Likert scale was used in assessing the questions. With regard to the physical stress factor, using the SALIVA AMYLASE MONITOR 2004, a Japanese unit, we tested the alpha-amylase level in the saliva of the nurses. Three instruments, a salivary transcription system, a test strip and an optical analyzer were included in the produced salivary amylase activity monitor. Firstly, for 30 seconds in the morning, the test strip was taken and inserted under the tongue. Occasionally, our research was performed during the time of COVID-19 pandemic quarantine, and we could clearly see that under the urged stressed situation, the nurses at the National Center for Infectious Diseases are working hard.
