||Riesgos respiratorios en los procesos productivos de la madera [in Spanish]|
||Nov.-Dec. 1999, Vol.45, No.268, p.24-29. Illus. 5 ref.
||Respiratory risks due to various wood production processes are listed. Exposure to wood dust is associated with sinusitis, asthma, infectious respiratory diseases and irritation of the respiratory tract leading to rhinitis and chronic bronchitis. Exposure to wood impregnation or treatment products (ammonia, phenolic resins, organic solvents and fungicides) induces a series of disorders. The importance of wearing protective gloves and clothes as well as respirators is emphasized.
