Abstract
The breath analysis technique and the urinary metabolites method are compared for efficacy in monitoring trichloroethylene (79016) exposure in experiments on human volunteers using trichloroethylene vapors. Degreaser's flush, the dermal response of unknown mechanism to repeated exposure to using trichloroethylene while drinking alcoholic beverages is described, with experimental results on volunteers using ethanol (64175) administration and trichloroethylene vapor exposure. The breath analysis technique is considered superior because of speed and simplicity of sample collection, unequivocal diagnosis of exposure, and superiority in estimating magnitude of recent exposure.
