Abstract

A large number of agents in the workplace cause occupational asthma. With the rapid introduction of new compounds into industries, it is likely that the prevalence of occupational asthma will continue to increase. This article defines occupational asthma as well as reviews the current tests used in diagnosing occupational asthma and therapies for treatment of patients.
