Título Ischemic heart disease and work stress in West German sea pilots.
Información bibliográfica Nov. 1977, Vol.19, No.11, p.762-765. 10 ref.
Resumen This study revealed an excess mortality from cardiac disease in this occupational group compared with the Hamburg male population. The excess was most noticeable in the 31-50-year group (22 deaths, against 4 expected). Occupational stress may be involved in addition to established coronary artery disease risk factors. Catecholamines were significantly high during pilotage operations. A detailed workload analysis as a basis for a code of practice to control excessive working hours is advocated.
