Aim. Analysis of functional capacities of the central nervous system (CNS) of medical personnel of maternity hospitals in the dynamics of the work shift. Materials and Methods. Using the WAM method, the functional condition of the central nervous system of doctors (obstetricians, gynecologists, neonatologists), nurses (midwives, anesthesiologists, ward nurses) in perinatal centers and maternity hospitals in the cities of Ryazan, Smolensk, Lipetsk, and Kolomna at the beginning and end of the work shift was studied. Results. Analysis of parameters of operational self-assessment of the functional state of the central nervous system (well-being, activity, mood) revealed the dynamics of reducing the levels of well-being and activity of the main professional groups by the end of the work shift. Calculation of the W+A/M index in the dynamics of the working shift showed its reduction in obstetricians-gynecologists and neonatologists of perinatal centers by 5.0% (p=0.024174) and 10.6% (p=0.026637), respectively; by 10.6% in maternity hospitals in both professional groups (p=0.037452 and 0.039579). Among the nursing staff of perinatal centers, the index decreased in midwives and nurses anesthesiologists by 5.3% (p=0.000752) and 10.6% (p=0.000752), respectively. In groups of nursing staff of maternity hospitals, decrease in the index was determined in anesthesiologists, midwives and ward nurses by 16.7% (p=0.006566), 10.6% (p=0.003385) and 11.2% (p=0.001059), respectively. Conclusion. Statistically significant differences were found in the analysis of well-being parameters of neonatologists and midwives of perinatal centers, in all the studied respondents of maternity hospitals; of activity – in obstetrician-gynecologists, neonatologists and midwives of perinatal centers, in all surveyed respondents of maternity hospitals; of W+A/N index – in obstetrician-gynecologists, neonatologists, midwives, in anesthesiologists of perinatal centers and in all studied professional groups of maternity hospitals. Reduction of the functional condition of the central nervous system by the end of the work shift may indicate developing fatigue.
