Analysis of the data of ultrasound heart examination in the workers of locomotive crews depending on their seniority

1 Kyiv Clinical Hospital at Railway Transport N2, HC Branch, PCUR

SUMMRY:
We performed the ultrasound examination of the heart in 398 workers of locomotive crews (WLC) and 116 engineers and technicians of UR. The results of the study showed that there were the following changes in the WLC: aorta dilatation, early diastolic dysfunction of myocardium, specific dynamics of geometric changes in the left ventricle with the acquisition of a ball shape that was a feature of its modelling with a decrease of the stroke volume in an increase of the heart rate. Similar changes progress in the WLC at the increase of the seniority and contribute to the accelerated rate of aging under harmful working conditions.

KEYWORDS:
locomotive crews, seniority, cardiovascular system, ultrasound examination of the heart.
