Swine confinement facility workers often develop respiratory problems secondary to their work, including the asthma-like syndrome, exacerbation of underlying asthma, chronic bronchitis, and mucous membrane irritation syndrome. Organic dust toxic syndrome is seen in these workers as well. Swine confinement barns are characterized by the presence of multiple factors that can cause respiratory tract and systemic inflammation symptoms, including dust, endotoxin, and ammonia. Investigators have… CONTINUE READING
