Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 1989 Mar; :1-72
This compilation of selected references on carpal tunnel syndrome was generated by NIOSH in response to an increasing number of requests for information on the disease. The compilation was of selected references which described the results of research funded or conducted by NIOSH, as well as some selected information from nonNIOSH sources. Included were NIOSH Congressional Testimony presented before the Subcommittee on Postal Personnel and Modernization, the abstract, ordering information for a NIOSH publication titled Cumulative Trauma Disorders: A Manual for Musculoskeletal Diseases of the Upper Limbs, and a title sheet and ordering information for an Office of Technology Assessment (United States Congress) publication titled Preventing Illness and Injury in the Workplace. Eight articles on the ergonomics and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries, with special emphasis on carpal tunnel syndrome and related pain syndromes were presented. Discussion also involved associated causes, underlying occupational factors, and therapeutic methods to deal with the problem, together with a list of 11 references for additional reading.
