Health effects literature primarily related to inhalation exposures to hydrogen sulfide was collected, evaluated, tabulated, and summarized. Approximately 350 documents were collected from computerized and manual literature searches covering the period 1887-1981. Pharmacologists and an M.D. epidemiologist rated the documents according to their applicability to the study and their methodology. The 40 documents considered useful for deriving a range of concern for human exposure to hydrogen sulfide from automotive emissions were tabulated. The 60 pages of tables detail the results of acute, repeated dose, and chronic testing of canaries, mice, rats, guinea pigs, chickens, rabbits, cats, monkeys, dogs, pigs, goats, cows, and humans as well as human occupational studies. Most of the documents evaluated are described in an annotated bibliography.
