Título Occupational asthma due to a repair process for polyethylene-coated electrical cables
Información bibliográfica Spring 1989, Vol.39, No.1, p.33-34. 7 ref.
Resumen The case of an electrical cable repairer is reported who presented with symptoms suggestive of occupational asthma. A supervised workplace challenge test confirmed this diagnosis and laboratory challenge studies implicated heated polyethylene repair tape containing the chemical cross-linking agent dicumyl peroxide as the cause. Similar cross-linking processes are widely used in the cable manufacturing industry and the possibility of occupational asthma occurring in other settings may need to be considered.
