Charles H Van Wijk
BACKGROUND: There are numerous reports on diver personality, spanning across five decades, across national boundaries, and using a range of measures to describe diver profiles. However, the range of reports poses challenges to interpreting new studies, particularly when having to compare findings across generations, measurements, and national/cultural contexts. This paper aimed to review and integrate diver personality descriptions, drawing on the available studies that reported trait theory based data for naval and sport divers...

All over the world there has been a sudden increase in the number of international travels, mostly for touristic purposes. According to the World Tourism Organisation, the number of international journeys exceeded 1.323 billion in 2017 and it continues to grow. Of the growing number of travellers more and more are the elderly (> 65 years), this fact can be attributed to longer life expectancy and a better quality of life, especially in the developed countries. The article lists the main destinations chosen by senior tourists and their reasons for travel, it also discusses physiological changes in organs and systems affecting the elderly, which are the result of travelling across time zones and to areas with different environment...

BACKGROUND: Hajj pilgrims are encouraged to take influenza and pneumococcal vaccines prior to their travel to safeguard against acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs). It is unclear whether dual immunisation with influenza and pneumococcal vaccines have had any impact on ARTI symptoms. To this end, we have examined the data of the last several years to assess whether combined influenza and pneumococcal vaccination has affected the rate of ARTI symptoms among Hajj pilgrims. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Hajj pilgrims from United Kingdom, Australia, Saudi Arabia and Qatar who attended the congregation between 2005 and 2015 were included in this study...

BACKGROUND: Reducing the crew size of the galley department on merchant vessels causes heavy workload for the remaining food handlers on board. This situation in return, could trigger risky behaviours and create an unsanitary environment which can facilitate the spread of various gastrointestinal disorders on ships. In such cases, ensuring and supervising food hygiene and food safety on board is up to maritime captains and officers. In addition to that, each crew member on board should maintain a general awareness of food hygiene to prevent any outbreaks...

BACKGROUND: Anisakis is a marine nematode. Its larvae can be found encysted in several species, both in the abdominal cavity and in the adjacent musculature. The most commonly affected commercial species are hake, whiting, cod, and mackerel. The prevalence in fish varies according to the fishing area and the size of the host. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Until now only three species have been confirmed to be involved in human anisakiasis, the most common ones being A...

BACKGROUND: The Maritime Labour Convention 2006 (MLC2006) entered into force in 2013 and is the first comprehensive set of standards for better living and working conditions covering aspects such as wages, contracts, food, medical care and social security. Currently, the Convention covers more than 90% of the world's shipping fleet. The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of the MLC2006 on the living and working conditions of seafarers and to test and adjust the methods for future use through a pilot study...

BACKGROUND: Previous research has identified the importance of promoting behaviour change within the offshore workforce. This qualitative study sought to: identify self-care behaviours perceived to require behaviour change within the offshore workforce, and explore perceived potential behavioural determinants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included the perspectives of both offshore workers (OWs, n = 16) and healthcare practitioners (HCPs, n = 12) from the global workforce...

BACKGROUND: The number of commercial cruise ship passengers continues to rise and is projected to reach 27.2 million passengers worldwide in 2018. Accidental injury aboard these ships can result in serious morbidity and mortality. This study examines the injury mechanisms, patterns, demographics, and outcomes of these injuries which are serious enough to require hospitalisation in order to facilitate administrative, financial, and medical decision making to aid in injury prevention and treatment...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this survey was to assess the stress in fishermen by analysing its relationship with sociodemographic and professional characteristics, by evaluating work stressors, and by estimating psychosomatic symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional survey involved representative sample of 828 artisanal and coastal fishermen. All participants were men and had a regular activity for at least 2 years. We used an individual questionnaire inspired by those of the National Institute for Research and Security of France and of the Karasek's Job Content Questionnaire...

Christopher James Taylor
BACKGROUND: The utility of cruise ship sanitation scores as indicators of future gastroenteritis outbreak was investigated by means of a 5-year review of inspection scores and outbreaks of gastroenteritis as reported under the Vessel Sanitation Programme of the United States Public Health Centers for Disease Control. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2012 and 2017 a total of 1197 inspections were published online, with a mean score of 95.7 out of 100. During the same interval there were 50 separate outbreaks of acute gastroenteritis...

The Bulletin of the Institute of Maritime and Tropical Medicine (IMTM) was published first time in 1948 as a preliminary publication. Since then it has developed and from 1999 it is known as International Maritime Health (IMH). Initially it was published by the Institute of Maritime and Tropical Medicine (IMTM) in Gdynia. From 2009 it was published by the Polish Society of Maritime, Tropical and Travel Medicine (PSMTTM) in cooperation with the International Maritime Health Association (IMHA) and the Norwegian Centre for Maritime Medicine (NCMM), later the Norwegian Centre for Maritime and Diving Medicine (NCMDM) at the Department of Occupational Medicine, Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen...

BACKGROUND: Telemedical Assistance Service (TMAS) is very important for seafarers and passengers who are far from full-fledged health services. This study aimed to determine the frequency of using Turkish TMAS by seafarers and other patients and to compare the given services. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data obtained from calls to Turkish TMAS in between 2014 and 2017 are composed of 5080 calls. In the study, they were examined in two groups as calls regarding seafarers and other patients...

Anna Kuna, Michał Gajewski
The authors present the current state of knowledge about the long term sequelae of the common travel-related infections associated with immunological dysregulation. Travellers' diarrhoea, chikungunya and dengue are common in travellers and protracted manifestations such as post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (travellers' diarrhoea), arthritis (chikungunya) or post-dengue syndrome may be more prevalent than previously thought. Attention should be paid to active prevention of the infections during travel, especially when an effective treatment against long-term sequelae has not been established...

BACKGROUND: Occupational divers are prone to many health risks. For instance, they can get infections. We reviewed the infectious diseases in occupational divers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a literature review which went on up to 31.12.2017. The research was carried out on Medline and Scopus databases, in French and English languages. RESULTS: Fifteen papers report cases of infections in occupational divers. They are mainly skin infections, but also ear-nose-throat and ophthalmological infections...
