Título Health effects in New York State personnel who responded to the World Trade Center disaster
Información bibliográfica Nov. 2007, Vol.49, No.11, p.1197-1205. Illus. 28 ref.
Resumen The state of health of 1423 New York State personnel who responded to the World Trade Center disaster was evaluated. Data collected by means of questionnaires, clinical examinations and laboratory tests were subjected to logistic regression analyses. Lower and upper respiratory symptoms were reported by nearly half of the study participants. One third reported a psychological symptom. Some health effects were associated with having been caught in the cloud of dust on the day of the terrorist attack. Other findings are discussed.
