  1. Respiratory irritation from environmental tobacco-smoke.

    Article - En anglais

    Acute physiological and chronic pathological responses of the respiratory tract to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) are reviewed briefly.

    This study excludes discussion of the possible risk of lung cancer and the known impact of carbon monoxide on the fetus and adult.

    In some environments, the dose of particulate matter and the concentrations of irritant vapors absorbed on the ETS particles reach a level for which a physiological response may be expected, not only in the nose but also the bronchi.
