  title={III . Results And Disscussion 3 . 1 Demonstration Spray Painting Exposure on Lung function of Painters at Studied Painting Workshops},
  author={Ahmed E. E. Hagras and Maie Ibrahim El-Gammal and Abeer E. Abdrabouh and Nesreen M. Essam},
Vehicle and furniture painting workers are artisan that could be occupationally at risk hazardous attributed to the chemical composition of paints. The present study was focusing on occupational air pollution found in spray painting workshops to evaluate the health hazards that might generate from paints. Hence, the prospective study was conducted to demonstrate the risk health effects to airborne particles and solvents of painting on lung functions of exposed painters in the car and furniture… 

Tables from this paper


Effects of pulmonary function in short duration exposed automobile spray painters
The absence of reduced pulmonary function parameters in this study may be due to the lesser duration of exposure to the spray painters and usage of protective instrument.
Effect of car painting vapours on pulmonary and liver function of Automobile painting worker within Baghdad governorate area
Spray painting is an occupation which involves the risk of respiratory impairment and also confirms the need of regular medical examinations and implementation of appropriate measures to prevent adverse respiratory effects of workplace exposure in automobile spray painters.
A Study of Pulmonary Functions of Spray Painters Working In Automobile Garage
A cross sectional study to observe the incidence of obstructive as well as restrictive pattern of disease in spray painters, finding changes in ventilatory pattern may be due to diffuse, predominantly mononuclear inflammation of the lung parenchyma.
Respiratory morbidity in spray paint workers in an automobile sector
Reduced pulmonary function tests (PFT) in spray painters were related to duration of exposure to isocyanate, which is a major cause of respiratory morbidity in car spray paint workers.
Respiratory symptoms, sensitization, and exposure response relationships in spray painters exposed to isocyanates.
Evidence of exposure-response relationships for both work-related and non-work-related respiratory symptoms and specific sensitization in a population exposed to oligomers of HDI is provided.
Asthma-like symptoms, atopy, and bronchial responsiveness in furniture workers.
Painters in the furniture industry, particularly atopic subjects, are at higher risk of asthma- like symptoms than other job titles, and asthma-like symptoms are more sensitive than non-specific bronchial hyperreactivity in detecting a negative effect of the occupational exposure.
Exposure to Airborne Particles and Volatile Organic Compounds from Polyurethane Molding, Spray Painting, Lacquering, and Gluing in a Workshop
Due to the health risk related to occupational air pollution exposure, we assessed concentrations and identified sources of particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a handcraft workshop
Forced vital capacity, forced expiratory volume in 1st second and forced expiratory ratio in automobile spray paint workers
Exposure to automobile spray paint impairs lung functions, and as the age, weight, height and BSA increases there was a significant decrease in FEV1 in study group.
Histological Changes in the Lungs of Adult Wistar Rats Following Exposure to Paint Fumes
Exposure to paint fumes over time is dangerous to the lungs and can cause respiratory distress, and the alveolar cells of the treated groups undergo fibrosis compared to the control group and increase in the number of type 2 secretory alveolar Cells.
Respiratory function and bronchial responsiveness among industrial workers exposed to different classes of occupational agents: a study from Algeria
The higher prevalence of bronchial hyperresponsiveness in solvent workers adds to the growing body of evidence of adverse respiratory effects of occupational solvent exposure and point to the necessity of preventive measures in solvent Workers to avoid these adverse respiratoryeffects.
