Título Stress and coronary risk in shiftworkers
Información bibliográfica Sep.-Oct. 1983, Vol.74, No.5, p.351-360. 46 ref.
Resumen 164 newspaper printing workers exposed to noise of approx. 90dBA were studied by questionnaire (Italian translation of a NIOSH method), psychometric tests, individual health file, and clinical and laboratory data analysis. There was a progressive increase in adaptation and selection with the aging of the working population; a breakdown in adaptation was associated with the main behavioural coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factor such as cigarette smoking; there were no correlations between adaptation indices and laboratory CHD risk factors. At the same time, the reliability of the NIOSH questionnaire for the Italian working population was confirmed.
