Occupational exposure is an important, global cause of respiratory disease. Unlike many other non-communicable lung diseases, the proximal causes of many occupational lung diseases are well understood and they should be amenable to control with use of established and effective approaches. Therefore, the risks arising from exposure to silica and asbestos are well known, as are the means of. Occupational lung diseases are a broad group of pulmonary disorders that develop from inhalation of specific particles. Historically, they have been a major cause of morbidity and mortality before workplace safety guidelines were rigorously established and enforced.
Documents both environmental and work-related causes of lung disease Unlike other books on the subject, this new volume approaches occupational and environmental lung disease from the starting point of the patient who comes to the physician with respiratory symptoms. The authors recognize that potentially harmful exposures occur not only in the work environment, but also as a result of hobbies 1/5(1). Occupational lung diseases in Australia – shows that occupational lung diseases continue to be a health concern in Australia and substantially contribute to the burden of lung disease. Findings from the report will inform the implementation of Safe Work Australia’s occupational lung diseases work plan and national policy to address.

Occupational Disorders of the Lung is schematised to present the reader with the main diseases and their industry related disorders. Finally the issues of legislation and information are addressed. This book, written by leading specialists in a new and exciting format, will prove an invaluable addition on any Respiratory Medicine specialist's Cited by: This authoritative text on occupational lung disorders builds upon the fundamentals, including clinical, epidemiological, and predictive approaches.
It discusses interstitial and malignant diseases, airways diseases, and other respiratory issues, such as diving, working at high altitudes, and abnormal sleep conditions.5/5(1). Occupational lung diseases, like Occupational disorders of the lung book lung diseases, usually require an initial chest X-ray or CT scan for a clinical diagnosis.
In addition, various tests may be performed to determine the type and severity of the lung disease, including: Pulmonary function tests. Diagnostic tests that help to measure the lungs' ability to move air into and.

Occupational lung diseases are occupational, or work-related, lung conditions that have been caused or made worse by the materials a person is exposed to within the includes a broad group of diseases, including occupational asthma, industrial bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchiolitis obliterans, inhalation injury, interstitial lung diseases (such as.
Other chapters include respiratory function tests, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, lung cancer, occupational and work-exacerbated asthma, diving and fitness to dive, high altitude illness and byssinosis which helps to give the book an international appeal.
Hard metal lung disease is uncommon, but cases have been described in small workshops where hard metal or diamond–cobalt tools are manufactured or sharpened. Cobalt is also a possible cause of occupational asthma, which may coexist with interstitial lung disease.
Other metal-related disorders. The authors of this book aim to draw attention to “the changing nature of the contribution the occupational environment makes to lung disease, and to the particular difficulties this poses for those who find themselves responsible for patient care or the management of relevant industries”.
The result is a book which is easy to read, helped greatly by use of a standard format for each chapter. The first recorded observation of an occupational disease may be a case of severe lead colic suffered by a worker who extracted metals.
It is described in the third book of Epidemics, attributed to Hippocrates, the Greek physician of the 4th century bce. Other early writers also recognized the association between certain disorders and occupations.
Book Description. This authoritative text on occupational lung disorders builds upon the fundamentals, including clinical, epidemiological, and predictive approaches. It discusses interstitial and malignant diseases, airways diseases, and other respiratory issues, such as diving, working at high altitudes, and abnormal sleep conditions.
The spectrum of occupational and environmental diseases has changed markedly during the past decade. Pneumoconiosis is still a common cause of chronic lung disease but the concept has evolved to encompass reactions of the lung to chemicals and organic or inorganic dust. Occupational lung diseases are related to particular occupational exposures in two main categories: diseases of lung tissue and diseases of the airway.
Pulmonary fibrosis with restricted lung volume decreases lung diffusion capacity on pulmonary function testing, showing increased interstitial pulmonary markings on chest X-rays. A Clinical Guide to Occupational and Environmental Lung Diseases delivers a concise compendium to the diagnosis and management of occupational and environmental lung diseases, incorporating evidence-based guidelines where available.
Each chapter provides an updated review and a practical approach to different occupational and environmental lung diseases.

Work-related lung diseases are lung problems that are made worse in certain work environments. They are caused by long-term exposure to certain irritants that are breathed into the lungs. These lung diseases may have lasting effects, even after the exposure ends.

Occupational lung disease may refer to diseases that uniquely and specifically relate to different factors in the working environment of an individual. Occupational lung disease includes black lung disease, occupational asthma, mesothelioma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asbestosis and silicosis.

Each Monograph covers a specific area of respiratory medicine, providing in-depth reviews that give clinicians at all levels a concise, comprehensive guide to symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.Occupational lung diseases include asbestosis among asbestos miners and those who work with friable asbestos insulation, as well as black lung (coalworker's pneumoconiosis) among coal miners, silicosis among miners and quarrying and tunnel operators and byssinosis among workers in parts of the cotton textile industry.
Occupational asthma has a vast number of occupations at risk.
