BACKGROUND Halon 1301 and Halon 1211 are being replaced because they contribute to the depletion of ozone. Many of the potential candidate chemicals for replacing them are, like them, halogenated hydrocarbons. These chemicals have the potential to cause cardiac sensitization at high enough exposure concentrations. METHODS A physiologically based… (More)
