Section 5: HEALTH HAZARDS

  A. Threshold Limit Value: See Section 2
  B. Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  

EYE CONTACT: May cause pain. May cause slight transient irritation with slight transient corneal injury. Vapors may irritate eyes;

SKIN CONTACT: Prolonged contact may cause irritation, defatting of skin;

INHALATION: Overexposure by inhalation of the vapors may cause nonspecific discomfort such as nausea, headache, or weakness. Higher exposures to the vapors may cause temporary nervous system depression with anesthetic effects such as dizziness, headache, confusion, incoordination, and loss of conciousness; or increased susceptibility to the cardiac arrythmic effects of epinephrine.

INGESTION: Ingestion is not considered to be a route of exposure. Ingestion of concentrate is not known to cause any health hazards.

EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES

  1. INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give mouth-tomouth resuscitation. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Do not give epinephrine or similar drugs. Call a physician.
  2. EYES: Flush with flowing water immediately and continuously for 15 minutes. Consult medical personnel.
  3. SKIN: Wash off in flowing water or shower. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.
  4. INGESTIONS: Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

BECAUSE OF A POSSIBLE INCREASED RISK OF ELICITING CARDIAC DYSRHYTHMIA, CATECHOLAMINE DRUGS, SUCH AS EPINEPHRINE, SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ONLY AS A LAST RESORT IN LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCIES
