The design of a canine inhalation exposure apparatus incorporating a whole body plethysmograph by B. B Boecker( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A whole body plethysmograph has been incorporated in an apparatus for exposing dogs individually to radioactive aerosols. This makes it possible to monitor the dog's respiratory pattern during the exposure without the use of any respiratory masks or valves. After three different transducer systems were evaluated for use with the plethysmograph, the flow rate transducer was chosen for several reasons including the fact that this system produces inspiratory and expiratory flow rate data as well as tidal volume and respiratory rate information. The aerosol is continuously produced and drawn past the dog's nose during the exposure period and provision has been made for quantification of the aerosol in terms of concentration and particle size distribution for each experiment. External contamination of the dog is minimal since only the nostril area is uncovered within the aerosol exposure chamber. Pertinent design and calibration features are discussed
Health Effects Models for Nuclear Power Plant Accident Consequence Analysis. Modification of Models Resulting from Addition of Effects of Exposure to Alpha-Emitting Radionuclides. Part 2. Scientific Bases for Health Effects Models. Revision 1. Addendum 2( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several studies designed to identify and quantify the potential health effects of accidental releases of radionuclides from nuclear power plants have been Sponsored by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Report NUREG/CR-2l4, Rev. 1, Part II (NRC, 1989a) describes in detail the most recent health effects models that have evolved from these efforts. Since the Part II report was published in 1989, two addenda to that report have been prepared to (1) incorporate other scientific information related to low-LET health effects models and (2) extend the models to consider the possible health consequences of including alpha-emitting actinide radionuclides in the exposure source term. The first addendum was published as NUREGICRA2l4, Rev. 1, Part II, Addendum 1 (NRC, 1991). This report, the second addendum to the Part II report, extends the health effects models to consider chronic irradiation from alpha-emitting radionuclides as well as low-LET sources. Consistent with the organization of past reports, this report has three main sections that address early-occurring and continuing effects, late somatic effects, and genetic effects. These results should be used with the basic NUREG/CR-4214 report and Addendum 1 to obtain current views on potential health effects models for radionuclides released accidentally from nuclear power plants.
