[Effects of inorganic lead exposure on the autonomic nervous system and on the variability of heart rate among workers at a battery plant].

Abstract

Inorganic Lead can cause a toxic effect on Central Nervous System, Peripheral Nervous System and Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). A damage of the ANS can determine an heart rate variability (HRV) reduction. In this study 43 battery workers exposed to inorganic lead with mean PbB = 31.63 microg/dl (DS 14.77 microg/dl) and 35 not exposed subjects underwent to… (More)
