This is the Diseases form displaying information for
occupational asthma, one of 182 occupational diseases or syndromes in the
database. Items in both the "Signs and Symptoms" list and the
"High-Risk Job Tasks" list are linked to forms with more detailed
information. Double clicking an item functions in the same way
demonstrated on User Interface #2 for cadmium and
abrasive blasting. Clicking the "Go to Agents that Cause the Disease" button opens the Agents form filtered for all agents in the
database associated with occupational asthma (208 agents).
Diseases are classified as acute-severe, acute-moderate,
subacute, or chronic. The "Category" drop-down list box can be utilized to filter the diseases by
nine categories: Airway, Acute Poison, Chronic Poison, Infection,
Interstitial, Metals, Skin, Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis, or Cancer. You can
also use the "Find Disease" button to browse diseases by categories.
The user can click the "Print Disease"
button to print the information for the disease being shown.
