Psychomotor performance of persons chronically exposed to carbon disulfide. I

, : Psychomotor performance of persons chronically exposed to carbon disulfide. I. Medycyna Pracy 34(4): 327-333

The study was aimed at evaluating the psychomotor efficiency of those chronically exposed to CS2 and at selecting tests to be applied in CS2 poisonings diagnosis. The study covered 126 viscose industry workers occupationally exposed to CS2 and 126 controls matching those exposed as regards age, length of employment and educational background. The following tests and appliances were used in the study: Eye-hand coordination test, Turner test for independent movement of two hands, reactions time meter, one-plate and two-plate tapping, modified d'Heuyer's and Baille's tests. Significantly worse results were found in those exposed to CS2, as compared to controls. Particularly great difference were noted in result of reaction time measurement and Turner test for independent movement of two hands. Those tests may be used to diagnose CS2 adverse effects.
