Título Hypertension, peptic ulcer, and diabetes in air traffic controllers.
Información bibliográfica 23 Apr. 1973, Vol.224, No.4, p.489-492. 9 ref.
Resumen The hypothesis that certain diseases are unduly frequent in air traffic controllers was tested by comparing the aeromedical certification examinations on 4,325 traffic controllers with those on 8,435 second class airmen. There is compelling evidence to support the hypothesis with regard to hypertension; for peptic ulcer, the evidence is strong; for diabetes it is slight but sufficiently suggestive for the matter to be examined in subsequent studies.
