Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other type safety glasses. Whre chemical resistant gloves. To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
Evacuate area and ventilate. Wear protective equipment. If required, use an inert absrobent. Sweep up and place in an appropriate container for disposal. Wash contaminated surfaces.
Strong oxidizing agents.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
Hypoventilation and rapid heart rate or low heart rate may occur. Headache, blurred vision, tremor, seizures, paresis, mental depression, coma, delayed neuropathies, various dystonias, weakness, and muscle twitching may be noted. Teratogenic lesions, and adverse effects during pregnancy may occur. <br>Carbofuran did not appear in the milk of cows fed the pesticide for an extended period of time. <br>Carbofuran has been shown to cross the placental barrier in a human overdose case. <br>No information about possible male reproductive effects was found in available references.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping may be noted.
Copious secretions, respiratory insufficiency, and pulmonary edema may develop in serious poisonings.
Diaphoresis may be noted. Cyanosis may occur following severe respiratory depression.
Blurred vision, constriction of the pupil, and eye irritation may commonly occur. Mydriasis may occur.
Do not induce emesis. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
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.
Remove contaminated clothing and jewelry. Wash the skin, including hair and nails, vigorously; do repeated soap washings. Discard contaminated clothing.
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
