||Occupational respiratory allergies caused by wood dust
||Allergies respiratoires professionnelles provoquées par les poussières de bois [in French]|
||4th Quarter 2003, No.96, p.501-510. 86 ref.
||Woodworking is a known cause of respiratory allergy risk. High-speed revolving machines produce large amounts of easily-inhalable fine dust, which when deposited at all levels in the respiratory tract may cause nose, bronchial and lung symptoms. Moulds, bacteria and bacterial endotoxins which grow on wood parts stored in the premises, together with substances used for wood treatment present additional respiratory hazards. Contents of this article on occupational respiratory allergies caused by wood dust: physiopathology; prevalence among exposed occupational groups; diagnosis in occupational settings; confirmation of diagnosis in specialized institutions; development; prevention; compensation.
