Poultry dust reported mean concentration of total dust from poultry operation range between 0.12mg/m3 to 26 mg/m3. The inhalable dust concentration has been shows to range from 0.02 to 81.33mg/m3 and that current allergy and clinical immunology of respirable dust from 0.01 to 6.5 mg/m3. Higher concentration have been reported in floor based operation than in cage based operation.A non experimental study is chosen to assess the quality of life and effect of poultry dust on respiratory system among poultry workers. The study was conducted in veppalai village. 50 male and female who comes under inclusion criteria were selected by random sampling techniques, data was collected using sociodemographic and multiple choice questions( to assess the respiratory system and quality of life). The method of data collected after an introduction and report with patient assessing the quality of life and respiratory illness among poultry workers by using quality of lifescale(WHO) and modified questionnaire to assess the respiratory illness among poultry workers.The result revealed that the poultry dust in the poultry farm affects the respiratory system of the poultry workers.Thus the poultry dust affects the respiratory system of the poultry farm workers.
