Notes to physician / Advice for treatment
This ester can cause moderately serious poisoning effects. Elimination is therefore the main aim of treatment. Due to its non-corrosive nature, elimination can be achieved through immediate vomiting or irrigation of the stomach if the chemical is ingested. It is helpful to give the person powdered carbon afterwards.
Take preventive measures against aspiration (intubation if necessary).
Irritated areas of skin can be treated with corticosteroids.
Corticosteroids are effective following inhalation too.
Symptomatic treatment.
