The results of hemodynamic parameters' evaluation (blood pressure, heart rate, minute volume of blood, total peripheral vascular resistance) and adaptation (adaptive capacity of the circulatory system, the index of physical condition, body mass index) to job strains in machine operators of agriculture with a different experience in the profession are presented. It was found that 27 % of the patients -machine operators were in a state of unsatisfactory adaptation and 18.8 % in the state of
more » ... the state of failure of adaptation options when functional body reserves were sharply reduced, indicating that the work in hazardous conditions resulted in a significant deterioration of the functional state of exhaustion and adaptation reserves. It was found that the professional experience of 10 years or more is a risk factor for the health of machine workers in agriculture, causing the violation of functional state and exhaustion of adaptive reserves of an organism, as evidenced by a statistically significant correlation between the indicators of functional status and work experience in the profession. Key words: agricultural machine operators, working conditions, work experience in the profession, functional state, organism adaptive capacity.
