This comprehensive treatise of occupational lung disease is focused on the clinician's point of view. The editors have brought together expert contributors from around the world to give their experience of these conditions, in some cases peculiar to their own country, thus giving a truly global view.
The full spectrum of industrially-related disorders is covered, from the pneumonconioses, through occupational asthma and organic dust disease, to lung injury caused by chemical exposure and pulmonary carcinogenesis. In each case, the authors have been asked to provide information regarding regulatory problems, working conditions and screening for adverse health effects where relevant, in addition to a description of the medical aspects of the condition in question. The concerns surrounding litigation are also considered.
