Abstract : The final report summarizes investigations that have focused on the lower respiratory tract toxicity of inhaled phosgene (COCl2), and it describes how the injurious effects of this compound may be enhanced by post-exposure exercise and/or result in a reduction in work performance capacity. Additionally, information is provided as to how increases in minute ventilation during exposure to phosgene affects the severity of the injurious response.
