Occupational Disease


Presentation

  • The impact has been that miners have lost their solidarity and power to investigate, monitor or object to present-day exposures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hoarseness
  • Chronic voice disorders due to excessive vocal effort lasting at least 15 years: 1. hard vocal nodules 2. secondary hypertrophic changes of vocal folds 3. paresis of internal muscles of larynx with fusiform insufficiency of glottis and persistent hoarseness[imp.lodz.pl]

Treatment

  • We propose that surgical excision is inevitable and that any primary treatment can improve the patients' postoperative comfort.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • A cautious interpretation is warranted because data analyses may not fully have accounted for the poorer vocational prognosis already present at baseline.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • What we do We investigate the burden, cause, management and prognosis of respiratory health within the general population and within the workforce (including the military) in the UK, Europe, and in low and middle income countries.[imperial.ac.uk]
  • […] and describe the disability and medical diagnosis, the medical services for such disability which the employee has received and is receiving, the physical activities which the employee cannot currently perform as a result of such disability, and the prognosis[ilga.gov]

Etiology

  • Abstract In many countries, including Poland, carpal tunnel syndrome is considered to be a disease of possible occupational etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Sentinel case approach; in analogy with pharmacovigilance: In the case of a rare disease with a high etiological fraction (when work is an important cause of the complaints), then a large group of sentinel physicians and others, who describe and report[oshwiki.eu]

Epidemiology

  • Unlike the epidemiological studies that emphasized fatal diseases, the workers' compensation estimates emphasized nonfatal diseases and conditions like tendonitis and hernia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We have skills in respiratory epidemiology, occupational epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, environmental epidemiology, statistical methods, use of routinely collected electronic health records, public health and laboratory-based methods for investigation[imperial.ac.uk]

Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • CONCLUSION: The causation of CTS by occupational activities, either alone or in combination with other factors, has been well documented by epidemiological data and is pathophysiologically plausible.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Primary prevention, early detection, treatment and regular follow-up of skin cancer (NMSC and melanoma) are shown to be beneficial from a health economic perspective. 5.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
