First-aid measures

- 4.1 Description of first aid measures

- General information

Instantly remove any clothing soiled by the product. Symptoms of poisoning may even occur after several hours; therefore medical observation for at least 48 hours after the accident.

Supply fresh air. Apply mouth-to mouth resuscitation or mechanical ventilation if necessary. Consult doctor.

Use a respiration bag or breathing device.

In case of unconsciousness bring patient into stable side position for transport.

- After skin contact Instantly wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly.

- After eye contact Rinse opened eye for several minutes (10 - 15) under running water. Then consult doctor.

up to cardiac arrest

Danger of urine retention

- 4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Monitor circulation, possible shock treatment.

Possibly oxygen respiration treatment

Monitoring or correction of vital functions.

At the first sign of change in mental status, oxygen should be administered.

The first step in the management of systemic toxic reactions, as well as underventilation or apnea due to

unintentional subarachnoid injection of drug solution, consists of immediate attention to the establishment

and maintenance of a patent airway and effective assisted or controlled ventilation with 100% oxygen with a

delivery system capable of permitting immediate positive airway pressure by mask. Circulation should be

assisted as necessary. This may prevent convulsions if they have not already occurred.

If necessary, use drugs to control convulsions. Intravenous barbiturates, anticonvulsant agents, or muscle

relaxants should only be administered by those familiar with their use. Immediately after the institution of

these ventilatory measures, the adequacy of the circulation should be evaluated. Supportive treatment of

circulatory depression may require administration of intravenous fluids, and, when appropriate, a

vasopressor dictated by the clinical situation (such as ephedrine or epinephrine to enhance myocardial

contractile force).

If difficulty is encountered in the maintenance of a patent airway or if prolonged ventilatory support (assisted

or controlled) is indicated, endotracheal intubation, employing drugs and techniques familiar to the clinician,

may be indicated after initial administration of oxygen by mask.

Fire-fighting measures

- General protective and hygienic measures

The usual precautionary measures should be adhered to general rules for handling chemicals.

Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food.

Take off immediately all contaminated clothing

Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.

Store protective clothing separately.

Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

Do not inhale dust

- Breathing equipment: Use breathing protection only if dust is formed.

- Recommended filter device for short term use:

- Protection of hands:

Protective gloves (EN 374).

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/

the chemical mixture.

degradation

- Material of gloves

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality

and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
