Nurses at Higher Risk for Occupational Asthma

Reddit

nurseNursing in Practice reports that nurses are twice as likely as members of the general public to suffer from occupational asthma.

A nine-year, global study showed that nurses had a 122% excessive asthma risk.

Researchers say that this increased risk may be due to exposure to sterilizers and disinfectants.

If you are regularly exposed to any cleaners or chemical fumes in your work environment, consider investing in an air purifier – or maybe even a mask.
