Hazards and Protection.
Keep containers tightly closed.
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.
Use safety goggles, rubber gloves and appropriate laboratory apparel.
NIOSH approved respirator.
Using appropriate protective equipment, sweep up. Avoid dust production. Place material in appropriate container for later disposal.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Silver nitrate, mercury bichloride, iodides, gold salts, tannin, calomel, alkalies, potassium permanganate.
Oxides of nitrogen.
Extinguish using media most appropriate for surrounding fire. Evacuate area. Wear SCBA and protecttive clothing.
Material is assumed to be combustible.
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.
Causes irritation. Posioning can occur by cutaneous absorption.
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).
Remove to fresh air. Provide CPR, oxygen if needed. Seek medical assistance.
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.
