Pulmonary function tests were conducted in 212 male workers exposed to fur dust in a fur-processing factory, and in 148 unexposed male workers. The authors used the cumulative dose of dust exposure (mg-yr) as an exposure index to relate to pulmonary function injury, as measured by pulmonary function tests, in exposed workers. The results showed that fur workers had lower percentages of predicted pulmonary function, as measured by forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in 1 sec… Expand
