||Catecholamine excretion and serum concentrations of lipids were measured in air traffic controllers on and off duty. Correlations were seen between the measured volume and the state of health of the subjects. Hypertensive subjects showed high lipid levels, and the levels varied less between periods on and off duty than was the case with healthy subjects. Persons categorised as having "intellectual-emotional" personalities showed higher rates of hypertension and of abnormal lipid metabolism. The observed hyperlipidemia is probably due to elevated adrenal and sympathetic nervous activity in the hypertensives.
