Título Occupational risk factors for asthma among nurses and related healthcare professionals in an international study
Información bibliográfica July 2007, Vol.64, No.7, p.474-479. 29 ref.
Resumen This study examined the relations between self-reported work tasks, use of cleaning products and latex glove use with new-onset asthma among nursing and other healthcare workers. A cohort of 332 participants from 22 European sites working in nursing and other related healthcare jobs followed during a nine-year period responded to a questionnaire about their work environment, occupational tasks, products used at work and respiratory symptoms. Poisson regression models were used to compare the risk of new-onset asthma among healthcare workers exposed to various substances to that of unexposed respondents who reported administrative occupations during the entire follow-up period. Compared to the referent group, increased risks were observed risks among hospital technicians (risk ratio RR 4.63) and among those using ammonia and/or bleach at work (RR 2.16). Other findings are discussed.
