SESSION TITLE: Occupational and Environmental Lung Diseases

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

PURPOSE: To identify changes in right ventricular (RV) Echocardiographyc Parameters and to assess possible correlations with biomarkers of inflammation at workers exposed to metal pollutants on historical mines areas in the North-Western part of Romania. Chronic occupational exposure to these pollutants with polymetallic texture could generate by redox inactive or active metals, reactive oxygen, nitrogen and halogen species by direct or indirect Fenton/Haber-Weiss reactions, enhanced lipid peroxidation leading to oxidative stress.
