This volume discusses the clinical epidemiological and pathophysiological investigations of airways diseases - emphasizing the diagnosis, including immunological and physiological methods of evaluation, as well as detailing all known causative agents and the main workplace settings associated with occupational asthma. Written by over 30 leading international authorities in the field, "Asthma in the Workplace": explores a stepwise diagnostic approach and the use of bronchoprovocation to evaluate individual workers; covers environmental sampling methods used to monitor the concentration of chemicals and proteins in the workplace; treats the medicolegal aspects, workers' compensation, assessment of disability, and surveillance of occupational asthma; presents specific disease entities that encompass a variety of high-molecular-weight antigens and chemical etiological agents, and considers irritant-induced asthma and asthma-like disorders; and lists the major chemical and protein inducers of occupational asthma, chief industries where these occur, and approximate number of documented cases in each category and describes the NIOSH information base and a French telematic information service on occupational asthma.
