After collection, the Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient, t-test, and ANOVA.

Results: Most of research units, i.e., 77 (74.8%) had the mean stress score of between 150-250, which was indicative of stress in them, and 4 subjects (3.9%) had scores higher than 250, which indicated severe stress. These results show that medical emergency staff has high stress during emergency medicine care.

Conclusion: Considering that the medical emergency and prehospital emergency medical personnel are an important part of health staff that save lives, and also that stress is an important cause of development and exacerbation of burnout, therefore, a proper management system for facilitating and removing the risks of occupational stress and measures to prevent the consequences, are necessary.
