Objective To compare the difference of time-windows between the effects of long-time voyage on physical and mental health of navy servicemen on surface ship,so as to provide the reference for reasonable medical service.Methods Two-week prevalence rates of the navy servicemen in a surface ship voyaging for 20 weeks in 2009 were surveyed.A reproducibility and cross-sectional survey with Symptom Checklist 90(SCL-90) tests was conducted to investigate the mental health of navy servicemen at 7 days before deployment,and 28 days,77 days,142 days after deployment during the long-time voyage.Results Two-week prevalence rates of the navy servicemen rose sharply and reached peak rapidly after the deployment,and then decreased gradually in the prophase during long-time voyage(within 8 weeks).The two-week prevalence rates tended to be stable and normal without significant difference compared with that before deployment(P0.05).The mental status of navy servicemen was still in good condition at 28 days after deployment.But at 77 days after deployment,the psychological state degraded significantly,with higher SCL-90 total mean score and factors scores of somatization,hostility,paranoid and additional factors(P0.05).The score of hostility was higher than the Chinese armymen norm(P0.05).At 142 days after deployment,all scores of the factors decreased to the normal levels as before deployment(P0.05),except the score of "additional factor" of SCL-90 which was still higher(P0.05).Conclusion Physical and mental health of the navy servicemen on surface ship can be affected by long-time voyage in different time-windows,with the former in the early phase and the latter in the middle phase of the voyage.
