    The goal of this study was to examine the relationship between shift work and cardiovascular risk factors in a cross sectional survey.

    Material and methods 

    2 610 men of the PRIME study, aged 50-60 years, residing in Haute-Garonne (France) and selected from health centers and various firms were screened.

    White-collar workers, retired and disabled men at the time of the study were excluded so the analysis was performed on a sample of 1 341 subjects.

    Work was categorized as day work (n=1 161) and three types of shift work : 2 x 8 (n=108), 3 x 8 (n=41) and night (n=31).

    A comparison of cardiovascular risk factors was performed in the different types of work.


    Univariate analysis showed that systolic blood pressure was significantly higher among 2 x 8 workers (132.7 ± 17.4 mmHg) than in other shift workers and day workers (126.9 ± 15.1 mmHg).

    The same difference was observed for diastolic blood pressure.

    Plasma triglycerides were significantly higher among night workers (1.60 ± 0.76 g/l) than among day workers (1.29 ± 0.81 g/L).

    Logistic regression analysis showed that the risk of hypertension. defined as systolic (= 140 mmHg) and diastolic (= 90 mmHg) blood pressure and/or antihypertensive drug. was 2 times higher among 2 x 8 shift workers (OR : 2.14. 95% Cl [1.42-3.23]) than among day workers after adjustment for BMI. alcohol and tobacco consumption and plasma triglyceride levels.

    The same result (OR 

    1.99,95% Cl [1.28-3. (...)
