my boyfriend was exposed to trichloroethylene/phosgene at work, we can not get the doctors around here to do anything-proactive or supportive. Several doctors have stated flat out that trichloroethylene can not cause symptoms that are exibited because it was an anesthetic. This trichloroetheyle is used as a degreaser in a heated vapour metal degreasing application. It is the constant heating that has degraded the trichloro into phosgene which is what caused the exposure damamge.it has been more than two months since exposure, and boyfriend is still hoarse and experiencing brochial pain. Has anyone else dealt with this how do I find a doctor who can listen to what i am saying and read the information on this chemical?:confused:
