Stress Inoculation

Stress Inoculation

Stress Inoculation Training (SIT) is being introduced at the Surface Warfare Officers School (SWOS) in Newport, RI with the aim of familiarizing the personnel with their own psychological and physiological responses to high stress.

NPS will compare the effectiveness of traditional cold-water exposure (CWE) with a cold-water perfusion system (CWPS) as a method for stimulating the body’s generalized stress response. The CWPS could potentially be used at SWOS and other training venues to allow selective imposition of physiological stressors to enhance the ability to expose students to decision-making and performance in high stress environments.

Product: Cold Water Perfusion System (CWPS) will potentially replace the cold pressor ice bucket in stress inoculation training.

  • Current Status: Baseline and initial data collections conducted at SWOS. Another study is ongoing at NPS using a ship bridge simulator and a cold pressor (ice bucket) stress.
  • Planned: Studies over the next year will assess cortisol and physiological indicators of stress with insights and feedback to SWOS.
