Beryllium is thought to be poorly absorbed from the gut and usually presents no hazard if ingested. Some compounds may be irritating and dilution is recommended. Following ingestion and/or prior to gastric evacuation, immediately dilute with 4 to 8 ounces (120 to 240 ml) of milk or water (not to exceed 15 ml/kg in a child).
Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. Administer oxygen and assist ventilation as required. Treat bronchospasm with beta2 agonist and corticosteroid aerosols.
Chronic granulomas are removed surgically.
Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
