This is a descriptive study based on the perception of Senior Interns of MCU Hospital regarding the effect on them of drinking coffee during their 24-hour duty.Thirty respondents were asked to answer a checklist form.There were 15 male and 15 female subjects with a mean age of 29 years.Majority of the respondents came from Metro Manila and the province of Bulacan.The findings of the study revealed that most of the senior interns about 80 percent drink coffee during their 24-hour duty. They agreed that drinking coffee benefited them by keeping them awake and alert during their night-time duties.This effect was explained by the presence of caffeine in coffee which binds to adenosine receptors in the CNS which stimulates brain activity and shortens sleep pattern causing a caffeine-induced wakefulness.Most of the interns took about 2-3 cups of coffee during their 24-hour shift.They prefer drinking instant coffee.The researchers therefore concluded that indeed, coffee has some beneficial effect to the Senior Interns of MClJ Hospital hence recommending it to future medical interns. Although, further study is recommended.
