Abstract: A practical and thorough guide to the early recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of occupational diseases. Since many of these diseases are reversible when treated promptly, the book concentrates on information that can help physicians recognize the specific biochemical, morphological, and functional changes that precede the appearance of manifest signs and symptoms. Preventive measures that can be applied to the work environment are also considered. The most extensive part of the book sets forth practical guidelines for the early detection and control of 28 occupational diseases classified according to the hazardous substances or conditions that cause them. Clinical information includes details on the best methods for assessing exposure, signs and symptoms associated with various stages of impairment or disease, relationships between exposure levels and clinical effects, prognosis, differential diagnosis, and individual differences in susceptibility. The book also features seven chapters organized according to the main organs and systems affected by occupational diseases. Each chapter presents information on the most common occupational disorders affecting the organ or system, the pathophysiological mechanisms involved, and the most appropriate clinical examinations and tests for early detection of impairment
