Summary  This research demonstrated how exposure to physical work and restricted sleep can trigger an increase in firefighters’ immune and hormonal stress responses. The work also explored psychophysiological interactions between responses, with findings that suggest when sleep restricted, firefighters’ show a worsening in mood which relates to elevated hormonal and immune changes.
