Emergency Overview

Warning! Combustible liquid and vapor. May affect the central nervous system causing dizziness, headache or nausea. Causes eye irritation. May cause skin and respiratory tract irritation. Prolonged or repeated contact may dry skin and cause dermatitis and burns. Harmful if inhaled.

Primary Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation, Skin absorption, Skin contact, Eye Contact, Ingestion

Eye Contact: Can cause severe eye irritation. Symptoms include stinging, tearing, redness, and swelling of eyes. Can injure eye tissue.

Skin Contact: Can cause skin irritation. Symptoms may include redness and burning of skin, and other skin damage. Prolonged or repeated contact may dry the skin. Symptoms may include redness, burning, and drying and cracking of skin, skin burns, and other skin damage.

Inhalation: Breathing of vapor or mist is possible. Breathing this material may be harmful. Symptoms are not expected at air concentrations below the recommended exposure limits, if applicable.

Ingestion: Swallowing small amounts of this material during normal handling is not likely to cause harmful effects. Swallowing large amounts may be harmful. This material can get into the lungs during swallowing or vomiting. This results in lung inflammation and other lung injury.

Aggravated Medical Condition: Preexisting disorders of the following organs (or organ systems) may be aggravated by exposure to this material: Skin, Upper respiratory tract, lung (for example, asthma-like conditions), Kidney, immune system, eye, urinary system, Exposure to this material may aggravate any preexisting condition sensitive to a decrease in available oxygen, such as chronic lung disease, coronary artery disease or anemias., Individuals with erythrocyte glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency are particularly susceptible to hemolytic agents and rapidly develop hemolytic anemia from ingestion or inhalation of this material (or a component).

Signs and symptoms of exposure to this material through breathing, swallowing, and/or passage of the material through the skin may include: Sweating, Fever, stomach or intestinal upset (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), irritation (nose, throat, airways), Lung irritation, central nervous system depression (dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, fatigue, nausea, headache, unconsciousness), Abdominal pain, Lack of coordination, confusion, irregular heartbeat, blood abnormalities (breakage of red blood cells), narcosis (dazed or sluggish feeling), kidney damage, lung damage, Convulsions, respiratory failure, coma.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS

No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: 2-Ethylhexanol did not cause cancer in male mice or in male or female rats when given to the animals through a stomach tube. It caused a possible increase in liver tumors in female mice. 2-Ethylhexanol is not listed as a carcinogen by the International Ag
First Aid: Eye Contact: If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. Flush eyes gently with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids apart; seek immediate medical attention.

Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Flush exposed area with large amounts of water. If skin is damaged, seek immediate medical attention. If skin is not damaged and symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse.

Inhalation: If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. Seek immediate medical attention; keep person warm and quiet. If person is not breathing, begin artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen.

Ingestion: Seek medical attention. If individual is drowsy or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth; place individual on the left side with the head down. Contact a physician, medical facility, or poison control center for advice about whether to induce vomiting. If possible, do not leave individual unattended.

Notes to Physician: Inhalation of high concentrations of this material, as could occur in enclosed spaces or during deliberate abuse, may be associated with cardiac arrhythmias. Sympathomimetic drugs may initiate cardiac arrhythmias in persons exposed to this material. Inhalation or ingestion of high levels of this material (or a component) may cause a hemolytic reaction. Complications of acute intravascular hemolysis include anemia, leukocytosis, fever, hemoglobinuria, jaundice, renal insufficiency, and sometimes disturbances in liver function. Fats, for example, baby oil on the skin or ingested oil, facilitate absorption of naphthalene. This material is an aspiration hazard. Potential danger from aspiration must be weighed against possible oral toxicity when deciding whether to induce vomiting.
