Título Effect of waste anesthetic gas and vapor exposure on reproductive outcome in veterinary personnel
Información bibliográfica Jan. 1987, Vol.48, No.1, p.62-66. 27 ref.
Resumen This epidemiologic and questionnaire study was designed to investigate adverse reproductive outcome in veterinary personnel who are exposed to waste anaesthetic gas and vapours at levels near the US NIOSH recommended standards. The study employed case-control methodology using a sample of male veterinarians, female veterinary assistants. Exposure to waste anaesthetic gas and vapours was not associated significantly with adverse reproductive outcome at the 95% confidence level for female veterinary personnel when adjustment was made for use of diagnostic x-rays. Use of diagnostic x-rays in veterinary practice was associated with a statistically significant increase in odds ratios for spontaneous abortion in female veterinarians and veterinary assistants.
