||A general discussion of the fatigue concept, based on criteria retrieved from Italian laws, is presented. The results are then reported of a questionnaire survey in which 1438 Italian anaesthesiologists and resuscitators (mean age: 45.5 years) were asked if they considered their occupation as fatiguing. A high incidence of stress-related conditions and joint diseases was found, with a positive correlation with age. Other organic diseases did not appear to occur earlier than expected. Overall, the principal risk in this occupational group was that of neuropsychic disease due to physical and mental stress. This paper was presented at an International Seminar on Ageing and Work, held in Verona (Italy) on 7 Apr. 2000.
