4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
After swallowing: caution if victim vomits. Risk of aspiration! Keep airways free. Pulmonary failure possible after aspiration of vomit. Call a physician immediately. Subsequently administer: activated charcoal (20 - 40 g in 10% slurry). More severe effects if alcohol is consumed
Inhalation
After inhalation: fresh air. If breathing stops: mouth-to-mouth breathing or artificial respiration.
Oxygen if necessary. Immediately call in physician.
Skin Contact
After skin contact: wash off with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing. Consult a physician.
Eye Contact
After eye contact: rinse out with plenty of water.
Other Information
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed irritant effects,
Dermatitis, Dizziness, narcosis, euphoria, agitation, Gastrointestinal disturbance,
Headache, Convulsions, drowziness
Drying-out effect resulting in rough and chapped skin.
