Resumen There was no appreciable difference between exposure determined by personal air sampling or stationary direct-reading instruments. Toluene uptake could be estimated by alveolar air sampling during and after exposure, but there was no correlation with the concentration in inspired air. There was a correlation between concentrations in alveolar air and in blood. Uptake was enough to cause a risk of central nervous system disturbances. No change was observed in daily toluene uptake with time in percent of a given amount. Measurements of alveolar air concentrations during, and not after, exposure are recommended.
