The FEV, is used to determine whether there is obstructive pulmonary disease associated with the airways or lungs. Both of these tests can detect hypoventilation, or underventilation, of the lungs; conditions that cause hypoventilation of the airways and lungs can lead to pulmonary disease. There are many more sophisticated pulmonary function tests that are used to determine a person's breathing capabilities for ventilation as well as gas diffusion. There are also muscles for inspiration and expiration that bring air into and out of the lungs.
ExtrapolationandCorrelation of AnimalData From the various toxicological investigations, the toxicologist must extrapolate and correlate the data for assessing human exposures. For example, information from animal studies is extrapolated to predict a response in humans. Sometimes, it is difficult to elicit the same response in humans if the selected species is not a suitable model for determining that effect. From a practical standpoint, rodents have routinely been used in initial toxicological investigations to obtain some general toxicity information.
The symptoms of acute overexposure to benzene include central and peripheral nervous effects, such as dizziness, weahess, headache, nausea, tremors, cardiac irregularities, and unconsciousness. Disturbances of the hematopoietic system (blood-forming system), including aplastic anemia and leukemia, are the main health concerns associated with chronic overexposure. Toluene and xylene are also used as common solvents and, on occasion, as substitutes for benzene. The chronic health effects of toluene and xylene involve target organs, such as the liver and those of male reproductive function.
