Abstract

When firefighters work in hot environments, immune responses can be elevated for up to 90 minutes [1, 2, 3], possibly increasing the likelihood of thrombotic events or illness [4]. Australian firefighters complete multi-day deployments following natural disasters. However, the extent of immune changes following extended intervals, particularly after an overnight rest, is poorly understood. Thus, this study aimed to assess changes in immune responses of urban firefighters up to 24 hours after a work bout in the heat
