This highly illustrated text and atlas provides a unique pictorial account of occupationally related disorders, and the processes that give rise to them.
Serving as a concise textbook as well as an illustrative reference, the atlas covers all the major occupational disorders and their causes with a particular focus on disease recognition, risk assessment and prevention of occupational diseases. Emphasising clinical and diagnostic aspects, each group of images is accompanied by a brief, but full, description of the condition being illustrated. The high quality illustrations comprise mainly full-colour photographs drawn from a number of international sources.
The comprehensive content is divided into sections according to the conditions being presented. Parts One and Two describe, respectively, diseases associated with chemical and physical agents including the effects of exposure to metals, pesticides, noise, heat and cold. Part Three describes diseases relating to ergonomic and mechanical factors, while Part Four looks at those associated with microbiological agents including TB and malaria. Further Parts consider occupational disorders of the skin and lung, occupationally related cancers and reproductive effects. Consideration is also given to the important areas of work and mental health, and to workplace assessment and worker protection.
Ideal for the trainee and practising occupational health physician, general practitioners, and occupational and public health practitioners, the book will also be a useful reference for occupational health nurses and occupational hygienists, trainees specialising in internal medicine and medical students.
