breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. WARNING: It may

be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or

corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.

the toxic material was ingested; the absence of such signs, however, is not conclusive. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar,

tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention.
