Cafe Scientifique Henley Presents Contemporary Occupational Lung Diseases

Wednesday 27 April
Zoom or Henley Hockey Club

Many people will ,quite reasonably, assume that the acquisition of a lung disease as a direct result of exposures in the workplace are a thing of the past. Diseases such as mesothelioma as a consequence of exposure to asbestos being one of the more commonly known examples. However, many of the everyday products we buy and use – from popcorn to kitchen worktops – can cause lung disease in those who manufacture them. In this talk, I will use clinical cases from my specialist clinic at Royal Brompton Hospital to illustrate a range of different contemporary industrial lung diseases that are difficult to treat such as severe asthma.
