[Changes in the status of the adaptation of workers at the television relay station on top of Botev Peak].

[Article in Bulgarian]


The state of adaptation of subjects (numbering 17) occupied at Botev Peak TV relay station and thereby exposed to nonionizing radiations--electromagnetic fields (EMF)--was monitored by following changes in analysis of cardiac variance (ACV) indicators. In addition to these, other physiologic indicators studied were systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as psychologic indicators, notably, psychosomatic complaints as early manifestations of disturbance in the state of adaptation. Data from the group of subjects studied were compared to those of a control group whose working conditions involved no EMF exposure. This comparison, based on ACV indicators (mean--mean value of successive cardiac intervals, SD--standard deviation of mean value of cardiac intervals (R-R), AMo--amplitude of the mode, SI, ABI, HI--homeostatic index, CP--classification parameter, IC), psychosomatic complaints, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, provided no evidence of reduction of adaptive reserves or deterioration of somatic and mental health state in occupationally exposed workers at Botev Peak TV relay station.
