Abstract

Wearing a protective mask is compulsory for those in professions such as fire-fighters, rescue personnel and soldiers. The phobia to wear a protective mask is considered a specific claustrophobia and may become of major concern during military service. To date, no data are available with respect to the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenocortical system activity (HPA SA) for both the so-called protective mask phobia (PMP) and its treatment. The aim of the present study was three-fold: 1) to assess HPA SA in soldiers suffering from PMP before and after intensive cognitive-behavioral treatment, 2) to compare these data with controls, and 3) to relate these data to subjective sleep.
