Newswise: Yet Another Way Dogs Help the Military; Aeromedical Patient Evacuations

Article ID: 717809

Yet Another Way Dogs Help the Military; Aeromedical Patient Evacuations

Florida Atlantic University

Animal-assisted therapy has many benefits in health care settings. Yet, its biological and psychosocial effects in the military are limited, especially for injured, airlifted patients. Researchers teamed up with a not-for-profit animal organization that trains therapy dogs to see if an animal-assisted intervention is feasible and effective at reducing stress in this setting. Results showed that levels of the stress biomarkers cortisol, alpha-amylase, and immunoglobulin A, significantly decreased following a 20-minute intervention with these dogs, regardless of post-traumatic stress symptom severity.
