  1. Management of occupational asthma.

    Article - En anglais

    The importance of occupational asthma and its fragement is usefully set in perspective by considering recent trends of increasing asthma incidence, morbidity and mortality in the population at large.

    The contribution to incidence made by asthma of occupational origin is of the order 20-100 cases per million workers per year ; the individual worker's lifetime risk approaching 5% in some industrial environments.

    Management of the affected industry inevitably follows different pathways from that of the affected individual, though both need to start from a definitive diagnosis.

    For the affected industry, mannagers must identify the causative agent and assess the extent of the problem.
