Título Asthma due to chloramine among swimming pool personnel
Título original L'asthme aux chloramines chez le personnel des piscines [en francés]
Información bibliográfica Apr.-June 2008, Vol.48, No.2, p.105-116. Illus. 34 ref.
Resumen This article describes three new cases of respiratory disease due to chloramines among swimming pool personnel in the Paris region. The causes of respiratory diseases among these workers exposed to chloramine emissions by inhalation are reviewed through a literature survey. In France, the occupational nature of these diseases is recognized. Job changes which are often necessary are not easy to implement among these workers, a majority of whom are furthermore young and in good health. Given the need to address various toxicity risk factors, the task of managing and monitoring the quality of swimming-pool water must be left to personnel that are diligent and particularly well trained in chlorination processes. Rules to be followed for limiting chloramine concentration in swimming pools are summarized.
