Bibliographic information Oct. 1975, No.10, p.14-16. 3 ref.
Abstract Results of studies in 196 chemical workers exposed for some years to various fluorinated or chlorofluorinated ethylene derivatives. Most of them complained of persistent headaches. It was concluded that the symptoms were due to autonomic dysfunction, often combined with neurasthenia. Measures recommended: periodic screening examinations and temporary or permanent changes of workpost.
