Nitrogen dioxide (silo gas) poisoning in dairy cattle.

Tijdschr Diergeneeskd 2007 Oct;132(20):780-2

Animal Health Service, Ruminant Health Department, P.O. Box 9, 7400AA Deventer, The Netherlands.

Toxic silo gases are a potential danger to livestock housed in close proximity to roughage silos. These gases, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2), may be produced during the early stages of (maize and grass) silage making. In humans, inhalation of these gases causes a condition known as 'Silo Filler's Disease' (SFD), which is a recognized occupational hazard for workers in upright forage silos in many countries.

An assessment of gases in oxygen-deficient hay silos and the effects of forced ventilation.

J Agric Saf Health 2007 Jan;13(1):83-95

Kedan and Associates, Seattle, Washington, USA.

Many modern tower silos used in the agricultural industry for hay and grain storage are oxygen-limiting by design. Forced-air ventilation using a forage blower is a method commonly used to decrease concentrations of toxic and asphyxiant gases and to increase the O2 content within a silo headspace prior to worker entry. This article describes the methods used to measure gas concentrations and the results obtained from a pilot study by the Washington Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program of two oxygen-limiting forage tower silos in eastern Washington State.

Authors:

Rev Prat 1998 Jun;48(12):1313-8

Service de pneumologie Centre hospitalier universitaire, Besançon.

Farmers are usually exposed to a wide variety of noxious organic or chemical substances. This explains why agriculture is probably one of the occupations where prevalences of respiratory diseases are the highest. Some diseases such as extrinsic allergic alveolitis, allergic asthma, silo filler's disease or pesticides-related fibrosis are classic and well described. Read More

[Accidental poisoning with silo gas].

Pol Arch Med Wewn 1997 Jan;97(1):52-5

Ze Stołecznego Ośrodka Ostrych Zatruć.

Eight cases of poisoning in workers cleaning silo are presented. Silo gas, produced during fermentation of vegetable material, contains very toxic nitrogen oxides. In this group three workers died within silo, four patients were hospitalized (one of them with acute toxic pulmonary oedema, two with sings of pneumonia, one had only transient decrease of consciousness) and recovered without detectable sequelae.

Department of Medicine, University of Wisconsin Medical School, Madison, 53792, USA.

Industrialization of farming, animal raising, and forestry has added chemical and mechanical hazards that need to be recognized and prevented. Lung disease among farmworkers can result from a wide variety of hazardous exposures, which include organic dusts, allergens, chemicals, toxic gases, and infectious agents. In addition to nonspecific symptoms of mucous membrane irritation, farmworkers can experience occupational asthma or bronchitis, organic dust toxic syndrome, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, silo filler's disease (toxic hemorrhagic pulmonary edema), and neuromuscular respiratory failure.

Twenty new cases of Silo filler's disease (SFD) have been collected, documenting the incidence and clinical features of exposure to nitrogen oxides present in freshly filled silos. Cases of SFD were identified using a statewide computerized discharge diagnosis system. Fifteen of these were identified in the index period, allowing us to calculate an approximate annual incidence of 5. Read More

[Silo filler's syndrome].

Schweiz Med Wochenschr 1991 Oct;121(41):1482-7

Schweizerische Unfallversicherungsanstalt (SUVA), Abteilung Arbeitsmedizin.

In 1975 an acute febrile bronchopulmonary illness after massive inhalation of fungal spores in silos was described as "pulmonary mycotoxicosis". Subsequently the disorder was referred to as "silo unloader's syndrome" or as a special form of "organic dust toxic syndrome" (ODTS). In this article the three cases of silo unloader's syndrome recognized by the Swiss National Accident Insurance Company (SUVA) between 1978 and 1989 as being an occupational disease are described.

Bronchoalveolar lavage findings in a patient with the organic dust toxic syndrome.

Thorax 1990 Sep;45(9):713-4

Division of Pneumonology, University Hospital Pellenberg, Leuven, Belgium.

A previously healthy student developed the organic dust toxic syndrome after unloading a grain silo for one day. Bronchoalveolar lavage seven days later showed a total cell count six times normal with 70% lymphocytes. This suggests that the previously described acute neutrophil influx into the alveolar spaces in this syndrome is rapidly replaced by a lymphocyte dominated infiltration. Read More

Between 1955 and 1987, 17 patients were examined at the Mayo Clinic shortly after exposure to silo gas. All exposures had occurred in conventional top-unloading silos. Acute lung injury occurred in 11 patients, 1 of whom died; early diffuse alveolar damage with hyaline membranes and hemorrhagic pulmonary edema and acute edema of the airways were found at autopsy.

Gases in forage tower silos.

Measurements of hazardous gas concentrations in forage tower silos are described. The problems associated with sampling in silos, the identity and distribution of gases and their rate of evolution, and the effects of forced and natural ventilation are considered. Particular attention is given to conditions at times when entry to the silo by farm personnel is likely and the possibility of farmers carrying out gas measurements is discussed. Read More

Grain dust is composed of a large number of materials, including various types of grain and their disintegration products, silica, fungi, insects and mites. The clinical syndromes described in relation to exposure to grain dust are chronic bronchitis, grain dust asthma, extrinsic allergic alveolitis, grain fever and silo-filler's lung. Rhinitis and conjunctivitis are also common in grain workers. Read More

Lung diseases in farmers attributable to their occupation include (a) farmer's lung, caused by exposure to mouldy hay, (b) the asthma caused by exposure to grain dust and (c) silo-filler's disease. Their prevalence in Canada is unknown. Farmer's lung results from inhalation of mould spores in hay; the mechanism is immunologic. Read More

Precipitating antibodies against different organic enviromental dusts were studied in 37 patients with suggestive symptoms of nonatopic bronchial asthma, comparatively with a group of 4 patients with atopic asthma and with a group of asymptomatic subjects, exposed to the same organic dusts as the majority of patients. Precipitins were found present in over 75% of the sera from patients with infectious type non-atopic asthma and were associated with positive semidelayed type skin tests as well as with positive bronchial provocation tests a few hours after antigen inhalation. No precipitins were found in the sera from patients with atopic asthma. Read More

Study of atmospheric fungi in a big cereal silo over a period of one year.

Med Interne 1975 ;13(3):221-6

A quantitative and qualitative study of the atmospheric fungi in a big silo was carried out over a period of one year (April 1973--April 1974). About 6 to 12 Petri dishes with Czapek medium were exposed for 5 minutes every month at different floors of the silo. The study showed:--a very high number of fungi colonies, reaching as many as 903 in March 1974 (a total of 60 min exposure); the dominant fungus was penicillium which was, however, overpassed in certain months by aspergillus (flavus and fumigatus) which in May 1973 reached about twice the incidence of penicillium.
