Pesticide Residues in the Indoor Environment

The American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) has developed a series of educational short courses on contemporary issues in environmental toxicology and environmental health. The topic for this module is indoor pesticide residues.

Developed By: 

Daniel L. Sudakin, MD, MPH

Learning Objectives:

1. Recognize the diversity of the chemistry and toxicology of common pesticides with an emphasis on indoor exposures.
2. Describe chemical properties of pesticides, and their impact on human exposure pathways.
3. Discuss specific examples of clinically important pesticides that may be encountered indoors including exposure pathways and scenarios, exposure assessment, and clinical toxicology.
4. Recognize emerging areas of research in research in pesticide toxicology including the use of biomonitoring and the health implications of chronic, low-level exposures.
