    Author(s): Rajnarayan R. Tiwari* and S. Raghavan

    Exposure to the toxic gases and air pollutants results in acute lung injury and inflammation in the respiratory system. Phosgene which is classified as chemical warfare agent is highly toxic and extremely reactive gas and has the potential to cause respiratory injury in the exposed population. The workers working in pharmaceutical and fertilizers industry are susceptible to its exposure and toxicity. In line with other chemical warfare agents, phosgene toxicity is predicted to be more severe with short-duration, high-concentration exposures than long-duration, low-concentration exposures...
