A REVIEW OF RECENT LITERATURE: MEASUREMENT AND PREDICTION OF OPERATIONAL FATIGUE
The report presents an overview, and selected bibliography, of recent research dealing with the measurement and prediction of fatigue and stress. The impetus for this review is the need by military medical personnel for procedures which might be used to evaluate "operational fatigue" during periods of sustained operations. Of most interest are those techniques which can ultimately be easily implemented in a field setting. Two broad lines of investigation are being followed in current stress research. Investigators are generally attempting to identify either neurosensory or biochemical correlates of fatigue. Fatigue studies have failed to demonstrate conclusively a high positive correlation between subjective fatigue and work decrement. Performance can be maintained within limits, in spite of limited sleep and high subjective fatique.
