Crude Oil


Presentation

  • Abstract At present, there is growing interest in research examining the relationship between occupational stress and mental health.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present work aimed to investigate the effects of rosemary extracts on metabolic diseases and the underlying mechanisms of action.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Petroleum Microbiology is a state-of-the-art presentation of the specific microbes that inhabit oil reservoirs, with an emphasis on the ecological significance of anaerobic microorganisms.[doi.org]
  • This paper presents the anodic oxidation of real produced water (PW), generated by the petroleum exploration of the Petrobras plant-Tunisia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We describe a patient who presented with a history of unexplained exertional dyspnea and pulmonary infiltrates. She was evaluated for interstitial lung disease, presumed to be idiopathic and underwent an open lung biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sepsis
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of prophylactic whole-body application of pure preservative-free topical petroleum jelly on the incidence of nosocomial sepsis in very low-birthweight (VLBW) infants.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Cough
  • It has been estimated that Exxon has earned millions of dollars strictly in interest from the original figure of 5 billion it was ordered by a judge's hammer to cough up.[web.archive.org]
  • In his 1669 book "Tukhfat al-mu'minin" (Gift Of True Believers), Muhammad Mu'min recommended the use of oil-based remedies for asthma, chronic cough, colic, dyspepsia and intestinal worms.[azer.com]
Dyspnea
  • We describe a patient who presented with a history of unexplained exertional dyspnea and pulmonary infiltrates. She was evaluated for interstitial lung disease, presumed to be idiopathic and underwent an open lung biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The immediate manifestation in all was dyspnea. The action on motor vehicle combustion suggested that some of this could have been due to oxygen deprivation; however, all individuals were dyspneic for several minutes after exposure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nausea
  • Tremulousness and mild nausea followed the initial symptoms but were of brief duration. One individual manifested numerous premature ventricular contractions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Local hospitals reported many cases of headaches, nausea and dizziness and seventeen schools in the vicinity were closed for about a week.[web.archive.org]
Constipation
  • KEYWORDS: Vaseline balls; constipation; hospice; mineral oil; oral petroleum jelly; palliative care[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Irritability
  • Although ultrasound gel is most frequently used, it can cause minor eye irritation. Placing a transparent dressing over a closed eye prior to application of gel can eliminate the eye irritation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • : Petroleum-based products can cause severe skin irritation and necrosis. Compressed air injury can cause surgical emphysema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Participants in Ogale more frequently reported health symptoms related to neurological effects (OR   2.8), hematological effects (OR   3.3), and irritation (OR   2.7).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This remedy doesn’t cause irritation to delicate skin because it’s even used by doctors when performing certain eye treatments. Eyebrows.[brightside.me]
Headache
  • The headache-post is a vertical wooden beam placed on the main sill directly below the walking-beam, to receive the weight of the latter in case of breakage of connexions The position of the reversing link is altered by means of a cord, passing over two[en.wikisource.org]
  • Local hospitals reported many cases of headaches, nausea and dizziness and seventeen schools in the vicinity were closed for about a week.[web.archive.org]
Tremulousness
  • Tremulousness and mild nausea followed the initial symptoms but were of brief duration. One individual manifested numerous premature ventricular contractions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Staphylococcus Aureus
  • PEE exhibited significant activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis with IC50 value of 87.2 1.6, 98.4 1.1 and 90.2 1.8 µg/ml, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • For the cancer risk, the total cancer risks were very high, ranging from 2.93   10 -3 (in the wastewater treatment area) to 1.1   10 -2 (in the basic chemical area), suggesting a definite risk.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • After PER treatment, there was a significant reduction of total SREBPs in liver cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A summary treatment of crude oil follows. For full treatment, see petroleum, petroleum production, and petroleum refining.[britannica.com]
  • The electrolytic process was monitored by the chemical oxygen demand (COD) and the residual total petroleum hydrocarbon [TPH] in order to know the feasibility of electrochemical treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • It is unique among human sarcomas in that it has an excellent prognosis. We describe a temporal clustering of a number of cases of CFS and investigate the possible associated prenatal risk factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • On the eve of a visit to the region by President Barack Obama, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal issued a grim prognosis: "This oil spill threatens not only our wetlands and our fisheries, but also our way of life."[theage.com.au]

Etiology

  • Our patients are important cases due to the rare etiology of cold injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present study investigated the effects of work stressors, social support, and 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor (5-HTR2A) genotype on the etiology of job strain among petroleum workers in Xinjiang.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Epidemiological studies in coke oven workers have shown increased risk for cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, but these studies are confounded by multiple industrial exposures, most notably to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that are[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] from the industrial zone, especially among the elderly (Lung: t -12.0; P -9.0; P CONCLUSIONS: Living near petroleum storage sites may represent significant cancer risk which cannot always be detected by traditional zonal approaches commonly used in epidemiological[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These findings are consistent with epidemiology studies of vehicle mechanics, which have not demonstrated an increased risk of benzene-induced health effects in this cohort of workers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Institució Catalana de Recerca i Estudis Avançats, 08010 Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. 3 Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, 08193 Bellaterra, Catalonia, Spain. 4 ISGlobal, Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Human epidemiology evidence found weak and inconsistent effects on the thyroid but without identification of specific chemicals involved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Smaller, less catastrophic petroleum product releases are less likely to receive publicity, although study of these incidents might help focus and prioritize prevention efforts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • KEYWORDS: Accidental burn; Burn prevention; Liquefied petroleum gas; Thermal burn[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] coping resources for workplace suicide behavior prevention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although such cysts are uncommon, techniques to prevent these unwanted sequelae should routinely be used, with the judicious application of non-petroleum-based topical antibiotic preparations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Tanker drivers are continuously exposed to hydrocarbons by inhalation and most of these drivers do not use protective devices to prevent inhalation of petroleum products; nor do they visit hospital regularly for routine check-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
