Abstract
Clinical and functional examination of the miners who suffered from coronary heart disease showed a higher ectopic activity of the myocardium during their work under underground conditions and during the subsequent 4 hours after its termination. It also indicated a significantly higher fatal cases of sudden coronary death in the miners in the aforementioned periods. To prevent the development of complications occurred in miners, the status of the cardiovascular system was proposed to be dynamically controlled.

Abstract
Occurrence of coronary heart disease among workers of Donbass coal mines more than 2 times exceeds the values for matched general population (groups of males aged 20-49). Peculiarities of working environment and industrial process were proved to be risk factors for coronary heart disease among the miners.

Abstract
The article is devoted to coronary disease in miners of deep Donbass mines. Data of its prevalence, chemical and functional features are given. Rapid progress of the disease was found to correlate with unfavourable factors of occupational environment. Mechanisms of dangerous heart rythm disorders formation during the work are shown. The main points of the programme improving the health care of miners suffering from coronary heart disease are described.

Abstract
The authors studied autopsy protocols, microscopic and histochemical data on the heart for miners who had died suddenly. No positive trend in the sudden coronary death incidence in miners was reported. A great number of sudden deaths were registered in mines. The deaths are attributed to severe atherosclerosis responsible for irreversible changes in the myocardium, coronary vascular spasms, emergence of pathological agitation triggering lethal ischemia.

Abstract
As a result of epidemiological and clinico-functional studies occupational peculiarities of ischemic heart disease (IHD) among miners were detected. The role of a number of industrial factors in the development of arrhythmia with unfavourable prognosis was assessed. Persons at risk for development and progress of IHD were identified. A method of dynamic control over their cardiovascular system was suggested. The findings of the study formed the basis for a complex follow-up programme for miners with IHD.

Abstract
In the process of carrying out medikal checkups of miners a shop physician must take an active part in forming groups at risk of ischemic heart disease (IHD) and in ensuring dynamic preshift and postshift monitoring of the state of miners' cardiovascular system through the use of comprehensive methodological complex and further health promotion of this occupational group. Those attributed to the groups of extreme risk must discontinue their work in a mine. It was necessary to find some appropriate employment for them in order to avoid their contact with colliery occupational conditions. Early conditions of IHD by means of the suggested complex and timely appropriate employment promoted better diagnosis of atypical early forms of IHD and prevention of its complications.
