Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Potential health Effects
EYE CONTACT: Causes irreversible eye damage. Symptoms may include pain, tearing, swelling, redness and blurred vision.
SKIN CONTACT: This substance is a skin irritant so contact with the skin could cause prolonged (weeks) injury to the affected area. The degree of injury will depend on the amount of material that gets on the skin and the speed and thoroughness of the first aid treatment. Symptoms may include pain or a feeling of heat, discoloration, swelling and blistering. The dermal toxicity of this substance has not been determined. However, it may be slightly toxic to internal organs if absorbed through the skin. The degree of injury will depend on the amount absorbed.
INGESTION: This substance is slightly toxic to internal organs if swallowed.
INHALATION: If inhaled, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs. This substance may be irritating if inhaled. Respiratory tract irritation may include, but may not be limited to, one or more of the following: nasal discharge, sore throat, coughing, bronchitis and difficulty in breathing.

Comments Health: Depending upon the extent and degree of overexposure to the product, signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result following either ingestion, skin contact or inhalation routes of exposure. Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result from either acute (one time), sub chronic (repeated short-term) and chronic (daily life-time) overexposure to the product.

Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition usually occur within 12 hours following overexposure. These effects may include, but may not be limited to, headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constriction of the pupil of the eye, blurred dark vision, excessive salivation or nasal discharge, profuse sweating and abdominal cramps. Incontinence, unconsciousness, convulsions and breathing difficulties are indications of severe poisoning. If untreated sever poisoning, death is due to respiratory failure or cardiac arrest.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Signs and symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition can result from either acute (one time), subchronic (repeated short-term) and chronic (daily life-time) overexposure to the product. See Acute Health Effects.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS

First Aid: From MSDS
From MSDS:
EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes immediately with fresh water for at least 15 minutes while holding the eyelids open. Remove contact lenses if worn. Call a physician.
SKIN CONTACT: Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Remove and wash contaminated clothing. If irritation develops, get medical attention.
INGESTION: If swallowed, call a poison control center or doctor immediately for treatment advice. Have person sip glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to by a poison control center or doctor. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
INHALATION: Move person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 or an ambulance then give artificial respiration, preferably by mouth-to-mouth, if possible. Call a poison control center or doctor for further treatment advice.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: Probable mucosal damage may contraindicate use of gastric lavage. This material contains a cholinesterase inhibitor. Measurement of blood cholinesterase activity may be useful in monitoring exposure. If signs of cholinesterase inhibition appear, atropine sulfate is antidotal. 2-PAM (Protopam) is also antidotal and may be used in conjunction with atropine but should not be used alone.

From Label:
IF IN EYES: Hold eyelids open and flush with a steady, gentle stream of water for 15 minutes. See a physician immediately.
IF ON SKIN: Wash with plenty of water. Get medical attention.
IF SWALLOWED: Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician or Poison Control Center. Drink promptly a large quantity of milk, egg whites, gelatin solution, or, if these are not available, drink large quantities of water. Avoid alcohol.
