Potential Health Effects

Emergency Overview: Caution! Combustible liquid and vapor. May affect the central nervous system causing dizziness, headache or nausea. May cause eye irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin. May cause skin and respiratory tract irritation. Prolonged or repeated contact may dry skin and cause dermatitis and burns. May be harmful if swallowed.

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

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

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. Passage of this material into the body through the skin is possible, and may add to toxic effects from breathing or swallowing.

Inhalation: It is possible to breathe this material under certain conditions of handling and use (for example, during heating, spraying, or stirring). Breathing small amounts of this material during normal handling is not likely to cause harmful effects. Breathing large amounts 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), Liver, Kidney, 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).

Symptoms: 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 excitation (giddiness, liveliness, light-headed feeling) followed by central nervous system depression (dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, fatigue, nausea, headache, unconsciousness) and other central nervous system effects, Lowered blood pressure, Abdominal pain, Lack of coordination, confusion, Difficulty in breathing, Bloody urine, blood abnormalities (breakage of red blood cells), kidney damage, liver damage, lung damage, coma.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS

No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: Ethylene glycol monobutyl ether has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals. The relevance of this finding to humans is uncertain. In a National Toxicology Program (NTP) study, lifetime inhalation exposure to naphthalene resulted in increases in
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, move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Keep person warm and quiet; seek immediate medical attention.

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

Hazards: 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 (See Section 2 - Swallowing) when deciding whether to induce vomiting.

Treatment: No information available.
