Malaria prophylaxis and self-therapy in airline crews


Steffen, Robert; Holdener, Fridolin; Wyss, Rosmarie; Nurminen, Liisa (1990). Malaria prophylaxis and self-therapy in airline crews. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, 61(10):942-945.

Abstract

The risk of malaria infection in airline crews is estimated to be 0.5 per 1,000 persons per night in areas with high levels of malaria transmission. Routine chemoprophylaxis for years is not recommended because of possible side effects. Airline crews should therefore use appropriate measures to prevent mosquito bites. In addition, they may need to carry "standby" medication with them to be used for presumptive treatment of a febrile illness if medical attention is not readily available.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
