Título Dizziness and oculomotor dysfunction after welding
Título original Yrsel som subjektivt symptom och oculomotorisk störning vid svetsning [en sueco]

Resumen In this study information on symptoms related to welding was obtained by means of a qustionnaire survey comprising 323 welders. Fatigue and eye irritation proved to be common symptoms, while only 8% suffered from dizziness. In a second part of the investigation 7 welders afflicted by dizziness and 7 references were investigated with a battery of oculomotor tests before and after 30 minutes of welding. The results showed that the oculomotor function of the welders had been impaired prior to the investigation exposure but also that the dysfunction increased after 30 minutes of exposure to welding fumes, especially as regards eye movement gain. However, no correlation was found between changes in oculomotor function and the extent of exposure to any particular metal, nitrous oxides or ozone.
