Abstract. Methodological approaches to psychophysiological support of specialists of medical formations involved in the elimination of medical and sanitary consequences of emergency situations are proposed; the necessity of normative and legal registration of psychophysiological examinations within the framework of medical examinations is substantiated. These approaches are considered from the point of view of stress theory and adaptology as an optimal strategy for protecting the “health of the healthy”. In the light of systemic concepts, the possibility of identifying individuals with a low level of psychophysiological adaptation is demonstrated, which serves as an indicator of the presence of disorders in the functioning of the regulatory systems that underlie prenosological and premorbid states.


Keywords: “health of healthy”, emergencies, hardware and software complex, medical contraindications, medical formations, methodological approaches, psychophysiological adaptation, psychophysiological deviations, psychophysiological examination, psychophysiological support, regulatory systems of the organism
