Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
May cause serious injury. Inhalation of excessive amounts may cause upper respiratory tract irritation.
Symptoms include headaches, dizziness, incoordination, drowsiness and unconsciousness.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Repeated exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors may, without warning, cause increased susceptibility to doses of any other cholinesterase inhibitor. Kidney and liver damage is possible from exposure to xylenes over long periods.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
CARCINOGENICITY: NE
NTP: NE
IARC MONOGRAPHS: NE
OSHA REGULATED: NE
First Aid: From MSDS

EYES: Irrigate immediately and continuously for 15 minutes. Consult a physician.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Any disease, medication, or prior exposure which reduces normal cholinesterase activity may increase the susceptibility to the toxic effect of the active ingredient.

NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: Active ingredient is a cholinesterase inhibitor affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems and producing cardiac and respiratory depression. Atropine sulfate in large doses is an antidote. Two to four mg intravenously or intramuscularly as soon as cyanosis is overcome. Repeat at 5 to 10 minutes intervals until signs of atropinization appear. 2-PAM chloride is a pharmacological antidote and may be administered as an adjunct to, but not a substitute for atropine, which is a symptomatic and often
lifesaving antidote.
DO NOT GIVE MORPHINE OR TRANQUILLIZERS. At first sign of pulmonary edema, the patient should be given supplemental oxygen and treated symptomatically. Continued absorption of malathion may occur and relapse may occur after initial improvement.
Very close supervision of the patient is indicated for at least 48 hours.
