First-aid measures

Inhalation
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If
not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs,
provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may
be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist
or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get
medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen
tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. In case of
inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be
delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical
surveillance for 48 hours.
Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air.
Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and
the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to
drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be
dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by
medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low
so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention. Never
give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious,
place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie,
belt or waistband.
Skin contact: Wash contaminated skin with soap and water. Remove
contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if
symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes
thoroughly before reuse.
Eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the
upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses.
Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
