First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation :
Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Remove
victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If it is
suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask
or self-contained breathing apparatus. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if
respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel.
It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention
immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie,
belt or waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire,
symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under
medical surveillance for 48 hours.
Ingestion:
Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Wash out
mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at
rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been swallowed and the
exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the
exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting
unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should
be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Chemical burns must be treated
promptly by a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If
unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband.
Skin Contact:
Wash skin immediately with plenty of water and soap. Remove contaminated
clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs. Wash clothing before
reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
Eye contact :
Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Immediately
flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids.
Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes.
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician.
