Abstract:

From the first consultation with patients suffering from vibration disease one is struck by the number of complaints which might be associated with certain disturbances in the functional state of the cardiovascular system. Many molders complain of tachycardia, a sensation of interruption in the functioning of the heart, pains in the vicinity of the heart, and pains of an angiospastic nature in the arms and legs. The authors analyzed the complaints of 204 molders suffering from vibration disease caused by the effect of general vibration.
