Mechanisms of cardiac risk among professional drivers.
This literature review indicates that professional drivers have excess cardiac risk that is not fully explained by standard risk factors.
The contribution of occupation is suggested by two independent methods and by psychophysiological studies during on-the-job driving.
Driving has been conceptualized as a threat-avoidance task.
Stimuli encountered in traffic are not inherently aversive but become so by association with driving experience, a formulation corroborated by laboratory studies in which stimuli such as car headlights elicit cardiovascular hyperreactivity and electroencephalographic signs of arousal in professional drivers.
