Abstract
Objective: to investigate the incidence and characteristics of common diseases of seafarers during long voyage, and to put forward relevant treatment schemes for medical security. Methods: to investigate and analyze the incidence of various diseases during the voyage from December 2017 to February 2018 of the crew of a survey ship, to understand the incidence of various diseases during the voyage and analyze the possible causes, and to provide corresponding treatment plans for the incidence of each stage during the voyage, so as to provide scientific basis for the medical support of the survey ship at sea. Results: the survey was conducted on 300 crew members of a survey ship, including 292 men and 8 women, aged 18 to 60, with an average age of 39. The top five diseases in the survey crew during the voyage were upper respiratory tract infection (35.33%), skin disease (22.33%), oral ulcer (14.67%), training injury (14.33%) and gastrointestinal diseases (13.67%). The incidence of upper sensations, skin diseases, oral ulcers and gastrointestinal diseases in the under 30s group was significantly higher than that in the other two age groups (p<0.05), while the incidence of training injuries was mainly concentrated in the 31 - 40s group (p < 0.05). Conclusion: during the voyage, diseases such as upper respiratory tract infections, skin diseases, oral ulcers, training injuries and gastrointestinal tract diseases are more common. Drug stockpiling, prevention and health education of related diseases before voyage should be done well, so as to reduce the incidence of common diseases of seafarers.
