Profile: Current scientific evidence suggests that chronic exposure to
low concentrations of anesthetic agents increase the risk of
spontaneous abortion in female workers and congenial abnormalities in
offspring of female workers and wives of male workers. Risks of hepatic
and renal diseases are also increased among exposed personnel.
Physiological functions may be impaired. A few studies suggest an
increased risk of cancer. Effects on the central nervous system due to
acute exposure of anesthetic gases have been associated with headaches,
nausea, fatigue, and irritability.
