Survey finds elevated rates of new asthma among WTC rescue and recovery workers
Date:8/27/2007

t the WTC site. The registry is a collaborative effort involving the Health Department, the CDCs Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), with funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The Health Department is now re-surveying all 71,000 registrants to learn more about their current health status. So far, nearly 60% of registrants have responded. The re-survey will help determine whether respiratory and mental health conditions have persisted five to six years after the disaster. Because of its size, the registry can illuminate patterns that would elude individual physicians and provide valuable guidance to affected groups. Previous findings from the WTC Health Registry can be found at http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/wtc/materials.html.

The Health Department is conducting a separate study of respiratory health among registrants, and is analyzing records to see whether the disaster has affected cancer incidence. The Health Department along with the Fire Department, Mount Sinai Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital is also updating last years guidelines for treating adults with WTC-related illness. A similar group of experts is developing guidelines for treating affected children.
