CORDEIRO, Ricardo; LIMA FILHO, Euclydes C.; FISCHER, Frida M.  and  MOREIRA FILHO, Djalma C.. Diastolic blood pressure and its association with cumulative working time among urban bus workers. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1993, vol.27, n.5, pp. 363-372. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101993000500007.

The relationship between diastolic blood pressure and the variables "total cumulative working time" and "age" was examined by regression analysis. The study was carried out among 839 bus drivers and conductors, users of an occupational health center in Campinas, S.Paulo State, Brazil. The main results were apositive association between diastolic blood pressure and cumulative working time, as well as an interaction between this variable and the bus worker's age.
