||Study on the level of blood pressure and prevalence of arterial hypertension depending on the duration of occupational exposure to industrial noise
||1995, Vol.1, No.2, p.109-116. 14 ref.
||In a study of 182 noise-exposed workers and 200 unexposed controls, conventional and occupational cardiovascular risk factors were recorded, blood pressure was measured and electrocardiograms were recorded. Exposed workers had higher levels of systolic blood pressure than the controls, particularly after 40 years of age. Rise in blood pressure was directly related to duration of noise exposure; greatest cardiovascular risk was in workers with more than 20 years exposure. The prevalence of arterial hypertension was 33% among the male workers and 16.5% among the women (23% and 14% in the control groups); women's risk increased considerably with increasing age.
