The Bulletin of the Institute of Maritime and Tropical Medicine (IMTM) was published first time in 1948 as a preliminary publication. Since then it has developed and from 1999 it is known as International Maritime Health (IMH). Initially it was published by the Institute of Maritime and Tropical Medicine (IMTM) in Gdynia. From 2009 it was published by the Polish Society of Maritime, Tropical and Travel Medicine (PSMTTM) in cooperation with the International Maritime Health Association (IMHA) and the Norwegian Centre for Maritime Medicine (NCMM), later the Norwegian Centre for Maritime and Diving Medicine (NCMDM) at the Department of Occupational Medicine, Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen...

The authors present the current state of knowledge about the long term sequelae of the common travel-related infections associated with immunological dysregulation. Travellers' diarrhoea, chikungunya and dengue are common in travellers and protracted manifestations such as post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (travellers' diarrhoea), arthritis (chikungunya) or post-dengue syndrome may be more prevalent than previously thought. Attention should be paid to active prevention of the infections during travel, especially when an effective treatment against long-term sequelae has not been established...

BACKGROUND: In case of an emergency related to crew's health the first responsible person on board is the appointed officer of the ship. Sometimes these officers aren't just the only responsible person but also the only available option. Therefore, they are expected to handle various types of cases from disease outbreaks to food poisoning. However, officers on board aren't particularly trained or prepared for such extreme circumstances. Services like Telemedical Assistances may provide great help in such moments, but the first identification and contamination of various diseases might not be possible without previously acquired knowledge and awareness...

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is an under-recognised aetiological factor of viral hepatitis; it is most commonly transmitted via the oral-faecal route, but can also be transmitted by blood or blood products, vertically from an infected mother to the foetus or by transplanted organs. The aim of the study was to present the current seroprevalence of HEV among soldiers from the Polish Special Forces deployed on military operations carried out in harsh environmental conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The research conducted between October and November 2016 involved 253 active duty soldiers, 237 men and 16 women, aged 26-57, without clinical symptoms of infection, participants in military operations in Asia and Africa...

BACKGROUND: Maritime medical practice includes assessment of fitness, management of medical emergencies and healthcare on board and ashore. A better response to seagoing professionals' health requirements can be achieved when all the respective stakeholders have a common understanding. Training is a powerful tool to raise awareness and in particular continuing professional development is very significant in sustaining competencies of these professionals. The objective of the study was to identify maritime professionals' perceived training needs...

BACKGROUND: A polytraumatised person is a severely injured patient with an association of several injuries including at least one life-threatening. In an isolated and hostile environment like the maritime environment, the principles of early care and fast evacuation of a polytraumatised person are sometimes difficult to apply. CLINICAL CASE: We report the story of a patient with a bilateral fracture of the lower extremities following an accident on board a Moldavian tugboat off the coasts of Djibouti...

BACKGROUND: Dockers in the port facilities are exposed to significant psychosocial risks (stress, suffering at work, etc.) related to heavy organisational, environmental, physical, chemical constraints, etc. These workers are particularly affected by the consumption of psychoactive substances because of the dangerousness and complexity of their work. To what extent can these numerous occupational risks be at the origin of behaviour favouring the consumption of psychoactive substances? However, in our country no study has investigated toxic habits in this population...

BACKGROUND: Diving is a popular recreation with an excellent safety record, with an estimated 1.8 deaths per 1 million dives. This study investigated the relationship between intentional deviation from accepted diving practices (violations) and diver fatalities. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors examined 119 incidents/122 diver fatalities that did not involve diver training in North America and the Caribbean, and identified the presence of violations of accepted diving safety practices, as well as if the death was associated with an acute medical event such as heart attack...

Barış Özsever, Leyla Tavacıoğlu
BACKGROUND: Human factor has become a critical issue due to the fact that all operational processes in maritime transportation have been accelerated with technological innovations. Irregular and long working hours, rapid change of working environments and other organisational and/or individual factors have negative impact on the performance of the seafarers as well as other transportation workers and/or shift workers. Seafarers working under the influence of these stressor factors, naturally, are affected from psychophysiological and cognitive aspects, which in return decrease their overall performances...

REVIEW
Krzysztof Korzeniewski
International travel with children, which is the opportunity for the family to see the world together, has become commonplace. If you are travelling with children the journey needs to be carefully planned, especially in cases of visiting a region with harsh environment or poor sanitation. It is particularly important in terms of thermoregulation (hot climate) and the immune system (protection against pathogens causing infectious and invasive diseases) as these are not fully developed in small children. In addition, it is important to maintain appropriate safety and security measures in the destination area (e...

REVIEW
Krzysztof Korzeniewski
Travelling during pregnancy has become increasingly common. Many pregnant women travel for pleasureand recreation and a lot of them continue to work and therefore often travel on business, sometimes to areas with poor standards of sanitation and limited access to health care providers. During pregnancy, it is extremely important that a woman has a regular access to maternal health care, also in temporary destinations, especially in areas characterised by harsh environmental conditions, and places where the prevalence of infectious diseases is high...
