Title Latent ischemic heart disease in sea captains
Bibliographic information Sep. 1982, Vol.8, No.3, p.178-184. 17 ref.
Abstract A near maximal bicycle exercise test produced a pathological electrocardiogram in 10% of 110 apparently healthy sea captains, compared with 4.6% in a control group and 11.8% in sea pilots. A high caloric intake in relation to caloric expenditure, heavy smoking, and factors such as stress, irregular working hours, and varying climatic conditions are considered in explanation.
