Adult lead poisoning document for healthcare providers.
La Morb Rep 2008 Sep-Oct; 19(5):2
A detailed, web-based document recently developed by OPH/SEET provides healthcare professionals with current and accurate information about lead exposure and toxicity among adults. Topics include: occupational and nonoccupational exposure sources, toxicity and susceptible populations, OSHA medical monitoring guidelines for construction and general industry, blood lead result standards (OSHA, ACGIH and CDC), and reporting adult lead poisoning cases to OPH/SEET. Louisiana state law requires the reporting of all cases of adult lead poisoning to OPH/SEET. The document also contains links to relevant, self instructed continuing education courses and the recent medical management of adult lead exposure guidelines put forth by the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics.
