Acute Health Effects: From MSDS POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS EYES: Causes irreversible eye damage. Symptoms may include pain, tearing, swelling, redness and blurred vision. SKIN: This substance is a skin irritant so contact with the skin could cause prolonged (weeks) injury to the affected area. The degree of injury will depend on the amount of material that gets on the skin and the speed and thoroughness of the first aid treatment. Symptoms may include pain or a feeling of heat, discoloration, swelling and blistering. The dermal toxicity of this substance has not been determined. However, it may be slightly toxic to internal organs if absorbed through the skin. The degree of injury will depend on the amount absorbed. INGESTION: This substance is slightly toxic to internal organs if swallowed. INHALATION : If inhaled, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs. This substance may be irritating if inhaled. Respiratory tract irritation may include, but may not be limited to, one or more of the following: nasal discharge, sore throat, coughing, bronchitis and difficulty in breathing. COMMENTS HEALTH: Depending upon the extent and degree of overexposure to the product, signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result following either ingestion, skin contact or inhalation routes of exposure. Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result from either acute (one time), subchronic (repeated short-term) and chronic (daily life-time) overexposure to the product. Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition usually occur within 12 hours following overexposure, These effects may include, but may not be limited to, headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constriction of the pupil of the eye, blurred or dark vision, excessive salivation or nasal discharge, profuse sweating and abdominal cramps. Incontinence, unconsciousness, convulsions and breathing difficulties are indicative of severe poisoning. In untreated severe poisoning, death is due to respiratory failure or cardiac arrest.
