||Atrial fibrillation and sudden death related to occupational solvent exposure
||May 1994, Vol.25, No.5, p.731-735. 15 ref.
||Two cases of atrial fibrillation and one case of sudden death are described in workers exposed to trifluorotrichloroethane used as a solvent/degreasing agent. This agent and related halogenated hydrocarbons have been previously linked to ventricular arrhythmias and cardiac sudden death when inhaled in excessive concentrations. These reports suggest that occupational overexposure to a fluorocarbon may cause atrial fibrillation.
