||Inspection of the log books of 39 merchant vessels, some equipped with air conditioning but the others not, which had made 820 voyages to tropical zones. The incidence of respiratory disease was twice as high in the air-conditioned ships. The deduction may be drawn from these data that air-conditioning should be adapted not only to general comfort conditions but also to outside temperatures.
