Paper Abstract
"In the presented research, a new algorithm of detection and analysis of non-stationary phases (NSPh), characterizing sudden changes in heart rate variability (HRV) parameters was used. Physiological reactions of air traffic controllers during the performance of training scenario were estimated. 39 participants - 14 experienced air traffic controllers and 25 students performed a 40-minute scenario, which included 3 stressful incidents: a rapid increase in air traffic density, low fuel level and plane engine failure. Students also performed the scenario after brief training. The results have shown that as expertise grows respondents show a significant decrease in duration and change in patterns of non-stationary phases of heart rate arising in response to the stressful incidents. These changes of parameters of non-stationary phases are connected with increased efficiency of air traffic controllers’ cognitive performance in stressful conditions. The research has illustrated that the analysis of non-stationary phase parameters complements classical HRV measures and may be used for assessment of physiological responses of operators in Augmented Cognition applications."
