BRADSHAW, Lisa; FISHWICK, David. Work aggravated asthma: A review of reviews [online]. Liverpool: Health and Safety Executive, 2014, 21 p. [Consulta 01.12.2014].

El trabajo agrava el asma: Un análisis de análisis. El asma es común en los adultos. El 7% de la población adulta es asmática. La mayoría del asma requiere medicación para controlar la enfermedad. El asma habitualmente se agrava por exposiciones inhaladas en el trabajo, y la mayoría de los agentes responsables son irritantes. Esto se define como "asma preexistente o concurrente que se ve agravado por las condiciones del lugar de trabajo". Se llevó a cabo este estudio para proporcionar los factores que pueden agravar el asma preexistente en el lugar de trabajo.

Asthma is common in adults. 7% of the adult population have this condition. Most asthma requires medication to control the disease. Asthma is commonly made worse by inhaled exposures at work, and most of the agents responsible are irritant in nature. This is termed work aggravated asthma (WAA), defined as "pre-existing or concurrent asthma that is worsened by workplace conditions". This review of reviews was undertaken to provide a narrative on the factors that can aggravate pre-existing asthma in the workplace. Whilst this process did not include a formal gap analysis, knowledge gaps are identified where appropriate. Eight a priori defined questions were used to focus extraction of information from relevant reviews. These were; A. Is there a definition of WAA? If yes, what is it? B. What is the prevalence of WAA? C. Which causative agents are associated with the onset of WAA? D. What are the risk factors associated with WAA? E. What symptoms are associated with WAA? F. How is a diagnosis of WAA made? G. Are there any successful interventions for the prevention and treatment of WAA? H. Is there a socio-economic burden associated with work-aggravated asthma?
