The study analyses the prevalence of stress events and Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among Slovene medical emergency professionals working in a traumatogenic environment. Results showed that 7% of this population suffers from a complete clinical feature of PTSD and over one third experiences some of the PTSD symptoms. The study indicated that symptoms of PTSD differ according to the length of working period, educational level, job position and gender while incidence of severe PTSD does not differ among the groups. The majority of the responders do not get professional mental health support even though they express a need for it. Results support the need of a well-organized and attainable professional program for PTSD screening, psychosocial and psychotherapeutic support for medical emergency professionals.
