Occupational Asthma

Course Number
HSWEB005

If an adult experiences new-onset asthma, it is recommended that occupational asthma be suspected. Symptoms include wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, cough, and sputum production -- similar to asthma that is not work-related. For some sensitizers and workers, symptoms may occur upon first exposures to the sensitizer; for others, symptoms may not appear until after a latency period. Latency could range from weeks to years after the first exposure.
