Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Some scaleless fish are sensitvie to this medication; therefore, treat at 1/2 the normal dose.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:EMERGENCY OVERVIEWRISKHarmful to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTSSWALLOWED: The material has NOT been classified as ***harmful by ingestion***. This is because of the lack of corroborating animal or human evidence. The material may still be damaging to the health of the individual, following ingestion, especially where pre-existing organ (e.g. liver, kidney) damage is evident. Present definitions of harmful or toxic substances are generally based on doses producing mortality (death) rather than those producing morbidity (disease, ill-health). Gastrointestinal tract discomfort may produce nausea and vomiting. In an occupational setting however, unintentional ingestion is not thought to be cause for concern.EYE: There is some evidence that material may produce eye irritation in some persons and produce eye damage 24 hours or more after instillation. Moderate inflammation may be expected with redness; conjunctivitis may occur with prolonged exposure.SKIN: There is some evidence to suggest that the material may cause mild but significant inflammation of the skin either following direct contact or after a delay of some time. Repeated exposure can cause contact dermatitis which is characterized by redness, swelling and blistering. Entry into the blood-stream, through, for example, cuts, abrasions or lesions, may produce systemic injury with harmful effects. Examine the skin prior to the use of the material and ensure that any external damage is suitably protected.INHALED: The material is not thought to produce adverse health effects or irritation of the respiratory tract (as classified using animal models). Nevertheless, good hygiene practice requires that exposure be kept to a minimum and that suitable control measures be used in an occupational setting. Not normally a hazard due to non-volatile nature of product.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS: Long term exposure to high dust concentrations may cause changes in lung function i.e. pneumoconiosis; caused by particles less than 0.5 micron penetrating and remaining in the lung. Prime symptom is breathlessness; lung shadows show on X-ray.
Carcinogenicity: No information provided.
First Aid: SWALLOWED: Immediately give a glass of water. First aid is not generally required. If in doubt, contact a Poisons Information Center or a doctor.EYE: If this product comes in contact with the eyes: Wash out immediately with fresh running water. Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away fromeye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. If pain persists or recurs seek medical attention. Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.SKIN: If skin contact occurs: Immediately remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear. Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available). Seek medical attention in event of irritation.INHALED: If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area. Other measures are usually unnecessary.NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: Treat symptomatically.
