Respiratory disease mortality among US coal miners

Objectives: To evaluate respiratory related mortality among underground coal miners after 37 years of follow-up. Methods: Underlying cause of death for 9033 underground coal miners from 31 US mines enrolled between 1969 and 1971 was evaluated with life table analysis. Cox proportional hazards models were fitted to evaluate the exposure-response relationships

Respiratory disease mortality among US coal miners

INTRODUCTION. Mortality from respiratory disease remains an important occupational hazard among coal miners. The prevalence of coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (CWP) among US coal miners has increased since the mid-1990s after a steady decline following passage of the 1969 Federal Coal Mine Safety and Health Act which mandated exposure limits for respirable dust.

Coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP), also known as black lung disease or black lung, is caused by long-term exposure to coal dust.It is common in coal miners and others who work with coal. It is similar to both silicosis from inhaling silica dust and asbestos dust. Inhaled coal dust progressively builds up in the lungs and leads to inflammation, fibrosis, and in worse cases,

Luckily, the lungs have another function they have defense mechanisms that protects them by removing dust particles from the respiratory system. For example, during a lifetime, a coal miner may inhale 1,000 g of dust into his lungs. When doctors examine the lungs of a miner after death, they find no more than 40 g of dust.
