||Asbestosis among electricians
||Aug. 1988, Vol.30, No.8, p.638-640. 16 ref.
||In a cross-sectional study of a small group of non-shipyard electricians the prevalence of asbetosis, defined as irregular opacities of at least 1/0 profusion, was found to be 15% overall and 25% after 20 years of service. Irregular opacities occurred more frequently among smokers. Cost estimates for asbestos-related disease should include construction electricians in the populations at risk.
