Title Health effects of hydrocyanic acid, cyanides, cyano compounds, cyanic acid and its esters
Original title Contributo alla conoscenza della patologia da acido cianidrico, cianuri, composti del cianogeno, acido cianico e suoi esteri [in Italian]
Bibliographic information Sept.-Dec. 1980, Vol.6, Nos.5-6, p.685-700. 60 ref.
Abstract Aspects reviewed are: pathogenesis (toxicological profiles of hydrocyanic acid; organic compounds such as nitriles; isocyanates), symptoms of acute poisoning, long-term exposure, first aid, prevention and biological monitoring. Conclusions: knowledge of the occupational pathology is relatively sparse, especially as regards the clinical picture of prolonged exposure; medical supervision of exposed subjects is not without difficulties even when methods of biological monitoring are available.
