Abstract : From six enroute and six terminal air traffic control facilities selected on the basis of differences between shift rotation schedules and high IFR traffic volume, 300 journeymen and assistant controllers were selected as volunteer subjects to complete a biomedical inventory daily for a period of 90 consecutive days. The inventory elicited information relating to health, morale, behavioral habits, and side effects of medications. (Author)
