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.
Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or belching may be noted.
Dyspnea, bronchospasm, tachypnea, increased bronchial secretions, and pulmonary edema may occur, especially in asthmatic patients.
Induction of vomiting is usually not necessary due to spontaneous vomiting. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents. Bethanechol - for substantial ingestions of bethanechol, consider gastric lavage preceded by endotracheal intubation. Other agents - carbachol, acetylcholine, and pilocarpine are liquids, rapidly absorbed and probably not removed significantly by gastric emptying procedures. Atropine sulfate is the drug of choice. For significant muscarinic symptoms administer: adults - 2 to 4 mg iv, repeated every 3 to 60 minutes as needed to control symptoms, then prn for 24 to 48 hours. Child - 0.04 To 0.08 Mg/kg iv (up to 4 mg) repeated every 5 to 60 minutes as necessary. Epinephrine - may assist in overcoming severe cardiovascular or bronchoconstrictor responses (dose: 0.1 To 1.0 Mg sc).
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.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.
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.
