Abstract
Investigation of respiratory responses occurring within a few hours after inhalation of cotton or hemp dust. Findings reveal chest tightness and decreased maximum expiratory flow rates from the narrowing of small interpulmonary airways by toxic, histamine- releasing agents in the dust. Further investigation of airway responses to air pollutants other than textile dusts are recommended as an aid in identifying persons with particular sensitivity to pollutants.
