Title: Real time fatigue assessment: A short review evidencing the usage of safety monitoring systems with military enforcement
Issue Date: 2019
Abstract: Fatigue decreases performance and physical strength causing incidents and accidents in operational settings. During military operations, soldiers encounter extreme conditions, which combined lead to a fatigue status that can cause serious physiological impairments, decreasing performance on the battlefield. Comprehensive studies in realistically stressful environments are essential to expand the knowledge regarding the consequences of real-life stress exposure and facilitate the development of operationally-useful techniques. This review, as part of a project for the development of a safety system based on physiological monitoring, aims to obtain relevant information about fatigue assessment through multiple physiological parameters in the military context, to focus on determining the associations between fatigue and physiological response in order to plan adequate interventions to prevent related negative consequences. Five databases (Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Medline and Web of Science) are used to develop a data search based on the crosswords of keywords. A total of 12 publications are included in the review. Topics such as sample characteristics, assessment context, purposes and findings of each study, parameters and equipment used, are analyzed.
