||The objective of this retrospective descriptive study was to determine the relationship between the cause of the evacuation of seafarers by the Spanish Radio Medical Advice Centre (CRME) and their previous medical history. Over a one-year period (2009/2010), 1062 seafarers consulted the CRME. 58.19% were treated on board with telemedicine; 17.61% remained on board until arrival in port and 24.2% needed to be evacuated to land. 40.9% had not been subjected to a medical check-up prior to enrolement. 23% of the evacuated seafarers had evidence of a similar problem in their medical fitness examination. It is concluded that the information given in occupational medical records needs to be improved (past medical history, consequences from background pathologies) to reduce the number of evacuations.
