Title: [abstract] LONGITUDINAL HEALTH STUDY OF US NAVY SUBMARINE AND DIVING PERSONNEL: PRELIMINARY RESULTS.
Author: Tansey, WA; Gell, CF; Harvey, A; Sphar, RL; Parker, JW
Abstract: The Longitudinal Health Study is an ongoing medical surveillance program designed ta analyze multiphasic health parameters among submarine and diving personnel occupationally exposed to specialized environmental stresses. Traditional as well as specialized health data is tabulated on Hollerith cards for immediate editing and storage and for ultimate retrieval and multivariate analysis. Anticipated and unanticipated biologic effects of specialized environmental stresses will be identified with a goal of controlling them. A preliminary descriptive profile emphasizing health patterns among six hundred submarine personnel is being prepared. The descriptive report will include anthropometric measurements, a tabulation of apparent cardiac risk factors within the population, a tabulation of dynamic pulmonary function studies, and a blood chemistry profile.
