4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Section 4 First Aid Measures

Inhalation

Inhalation: Remove from exposure.  If there is difficulty in breathing, give oxygen.  Seek medical attention if symptoms persist. 

 

 

Skin contact

Skin contact: Wash skin with water.  Continue washing for at least 15 minutes.  Obtain medical attention if blistering occurs or redness persists. 

 

 

Eye contact

Eye contact: Immediately flush the eye with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eye open.  Obtain medical attention if soreness or redness persists. 

 

 

Ingestion

Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water.  Have victim drink 1-3 glasses of water to dilute stomach contents.  Induce vomiting if person is conscious.  Immediate medical attention is required  Never administer anything by mouth if a victim is losing conciousness, is unconcious or is convulsing.
