Biological monitoring of inert substances requires knowledge of the mechanisms regulating respiratory absorption. The authors examine the influence of parameters such as work load, exposure duration and biotransformation on the respiratory absorption of inert airborne pollutants in the workplace. Attention is also given to the possibility of using biological thresholds or Biological Equivalent Limits (BELs).
