According to REG of cerebral blood vessels found that the train drivers-instructors have the sufficient reserve of adaptive- compensatory mechanisms, which is enough for the timely response on stress factors which occur during movement of the locomotive. The drivers of locomotives and their assistants noted the significant decrease rheosystolic index in FMs and OMd leads and the likely increase in dicrotism index of arterial vessels in both the right and left carotid and occipital arteries and in the veins of the left occipital region. This category of workers has also established the reliable increase diastolic index on the left occipital artery and venous vessels (FMd) of the right side. Indicators uncrating index in the monitoring group in most blood vessels had the tendency to increase and venous vessels significantly decreased compared to control values, indicating that hypertensive type REG drivers and assistant drivers. Machinists of locomotives and their assistants, having harmful habits (smoking) and excess weight are more vulnerable to production stress, making it impossible to continue safe operation of persons of the respective categories of locomotive brigades.
