Product may cause hypokalemia, resulting in cardiac and muscular disorders.
Insoluble barium compound inhaled have been the source of barytosis, pneumoconiosis characterized radiologically by modular opacities usually under pseudotumors without fibrosis evolution, at least when the dust does not contain free cilica crystallized.
In case of skin and eye contact :
Contact with skin : Redness. Pain. Skin burns.
Contact with eyes : Redness. Pain. Blurred vision.
If swallowed : Ingestion may cause important irritation and burns in mouth, the throat, oesophagus and stomach.
