This chapter describes cardiovascular disorders related to occupational and environmental exposures. Sections of the chapter address cardiovascular disease due to carbon monoxide, nitrates, particulate air pollution, and psychosocial factors. The chapter also addresses shift work and sedentary work. A section describes arrhythmias due to various specific chemical exposures. Another section describes hypertension related to lead, excessive noise, and other factors. Finally, a section addresses peripheral vascular disease and Raynaud disease. Cardiovascular disorders are very common and recognition of how occupational and environmental exposures contribute to the occurrence and exacerbation of cardiovascular disorders is important in their prevention, diagnosis, and management.
