 Synonyms & Historicals
Metals, Heavy .
Heavy Metals .
Metallic Pollutants .
Toxic Metals .
Metals with high specific gravity, typically larger than 5. They have complex spectra, form colored salts and double salts, have a low electrode potential, are mainly amphoteric, yield weak bases and weak acids, and are oxidizing or reducing agents (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) .
Metals .
Electropositive chemical elements characterized by ductility, malleability, luster, and conductance of heat and electricity. They can replace the hydrogen of an acid and form bases with hydroxyl radicals. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) .
Heavy Metal Poisoning .
Heavy Metal Poisonings .
Metal Poisoning, Heavy .
Metal Poisonings, Heavy .
Poisoning, Heavy Metal .
Poisonings, Heavy Metal .
Poisoning that results from chronic or acute ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of HEAVY METALS. Acute and chronic exposures can cause ANEMIA; KIDNEY and LIVER damage; PULMONARY EDEMA; MEMORY LOSS and behavioral changes; bone deformities in children; and MISCARRIAGE or PREMATURE LABOR in pregnant women. .
Heavy Metal Poisoning, Nervous System .
Poisoning, Heavy Metals, Nervous System .
Conditions associated with damage or dysfunction of the nervous system caused by exposure to heavy metals, which may cause a variety of central, peripheral, or autonomic nervous system injuries. .
