||Conclusions of this criteria document: exposure to barium and barium compounds causes effects on blood pressure (hypertension) and on the renal function. Inhalation of insoluble forms results in radiographic findings of baritosis. Data from animal studies on inhalation exposure show respiratory effects (bronchitis) and inflammatory response and granuloma formation in the lungs.
