Although chlorine gas is a common irritant exposure, little is known about airway responses to chlorine inhalation among persons with baseline airway hyperreactivity. We wished to determine whether such persons manifest an exaggerated response to chlorine compared with normal subjects. We studied 10 subjects, five with and five without airway hyperresponsiveness (HR) after exposure to 1.0 ppm chlorine and five persons, all with HR, to 0.4 ppm chlorine. After 1.0 ppm inhalation, there was a… CONTINUE READING
