Table 3 Association between self-reported burnout and activity levels

From: The association between objectively-measured activity, sleep, call responsibilities, and burnout in a resident cohort

  Daily mean ± SE across all study periods Difference (95% CI) between burnout groups P-valuea
Activity measure No burnout Burnout   
Exercise HR Zoneb, min 142 ± 16 120 ± 13 −22 (−50 to 6) 0.12
Active Timec, min 40 ± 6 40 ± 7 −0.1 (−13 to 13) 0.99

  1. aThe mean activity level was modeled as a function of burnout category, study period, treatment group, sex, and body mass index using a linear generalized estimating equation (GEE) model. An exchangeable working correlation structure was specified to account for correlation between repeated activity measurements over time. The GEE model was used to estimate the mean difference in activity level between those with and without burnout over follow-up
  2. bExercise heart rate zone was defined as a combination of time in ‘fat burning’, ‘cardio’, and ‘peak’ heart rate zones, as measured and reported by the Fitbit Charge HR™ app
  3. cActive time was defined as a combination of ‘fairly active minutes’ and ‘very active minutes’, as measured and reported by the Fitbit Charge HR™ app
  4. Abbreviations: CI, 95% confidence interval; HR, heart rate; min, minutes; SE, standard error
