Vanadium

Exposure

  • Metal Processing: may generate vanadium fumes
  • Fossil Fuel By-Product: vanadium-rich fuel oil ash (vanadium exposure is at a lower concentrations than with fume exposure)

Physiology

  • Fume or Fuel Oil Ash Inhalation

Clinical

  • Acute Bronchitis
  • Acute Lung Injury-ARDS (see [[Acute Lung Injury-ARDS]])
    • Case report in association with ash from oil-burning furnace
  • Acute Pneumonitis (see [[Pneumonia]])
    • Case report

Treatment

  • Supportive
