Nickel analyses were performed by electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry upon urine specimens obtained from electroplating workers at the beginning, middle and end of the work-shift. The means (+/- S.D.) for nickel concentrations in urine specimens from seven electroplating workers on three regular workdays were: 34 +/- 32 micrograms/L (pre-shift); 64 +/- 63 micrograms/L (mid-shift) and 46 +/- 32 micrograms/L (end-shift), compared to 2.7 +/- 1.6 micrograms/L (pre-shift) in 19 controls… CONTINUE READING
