      Incidence declining due to dust reduction measures Simple coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP): Patients have coal macules (1 - 2 mm collections of carbon laden macrophages) and coal nodules (coal macules and fibrosis) scattered throughout lung, more in upper lobe and upper lower lobe, near respiratory bronchioles. Pneumoconiosis, any of many lung diseases caused by the inhalation of a variety of organic or inorganic dusts or chemical irritants, usually over a prolonged period of time. The type and severity of disease depends on the composition of the dust; small quantities of some substances, notably silica.

Pneumoconiosis (noo-mo-ko-nee-O-sis) is a disease of the lungs caused by long-term breathing of dust, especially certain mineral dusts. Forms of pneumoconiosis include black lung disease (coal worker's pneumoconiosis), silicosis, and asbestosis.

Shapiro. Pneumoconiosis is a nonneoplastic reaction of the lung to inhaled inorganic particles. Most affected patients are diagnosed based on a combination of an occupational history, pulmonary function texts, and radiologic findings.

Surgical specimens showing pneumoconiosis are uncommon. Pneumoconiosis is a general term given to any lung disease caused by dusts that are breathed in and then deposited deep in the lungs, causing damage.

Pneumoconiosis is usually considered an occupational lung disease and includes asbestosis, silicosis, and coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (CWP),File Size: 86KB. Pneumoconiosis is a lung condition that is caused by inhaling particles of mineral dust, usually while working in a Pneumoconiosis book, mineral-related industry.

At first, irritating mineral dust can trigger lung inflammation, which causes areas of the lung to be temporarily damaged. Over time, these areas can progress to form tough, fibrous tissue deposits. Pneumoconiosis is a lung condition that is caused by inhaling particles of mineral dust, usually while working in a high-risk, mineral-related industry.

At first, irritating mineral dust can trigger lung inflammation, which causes areas of the lung to be temporarily damaged.

Pneumoconiosis is the general term for a class of interstitial lung diseases where inhalation of dust has caused interstitial fibrosis. Pneumoconiosis often causes restrictive impairment, although diagnosable pneumoconiosis can occur without measurable impairment of lung function.

Depending on extent and severity, it may cause death within months or years, or it may never produce symptoms. It is usually Specialty: Pulmonology. NIOSH operates the Coal Workers’ Health Surveillance Program, a worker monitoring program for underground coal miners in the U.S.

This program was mandated by the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act and is intended to prevent coal workers’ pneumoconiosis through early detection of disease and voluntary mine transfer to low dust. The term 'pneumoconiosis' refers to a group of lung diseases caused by the inhalation - and retention in the lungs - of dusts.

The most commonly occurring types of pneumoconiosis (apart from asbestosis) are coal worker’s pneumoconiosis, arising from the inhalation of coal dust, and silicosis, arising from the inhalation of respirable crystalline silica (RCS). Pneumoconiosis is a lung disease caused by dust particles.

Symptoms include breathing difficulty and a cough. It can result from exposure to coal dust, asbestos particles, and cotton dust.

Pneumoconiosis can take several years to develop and the severity can be dependent on a number of factors, however in general terms if you have worked in an industry where you have been exposed to different types of organic and non-organic dust (often over a period of a number of years) and you experience the following general symptoms it is advisable to visit a qualified medical practitioner.

Pneumoconiosis can manifest itself when a person has inhaled one or more of a range of substances (often forms of dust) and these substances collect in the alveoli or air sacs in the lung. The presence of the substance in the lung can cause an inflammatory reaction that can turn the normal elastic lung wall into fibrous scar tissue which, over.

Silicosis is occupational pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of crystalline silicon dioxide.
