4. First-Aid Measures
General advice:
First aid providers should wear personal protective equipment to prevent exposure. Remove contaminated
clothing. Move person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 or ambulance, then give artificial
respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth if possible. Call a poison control center or physician for treatment advice.
Have the product container or label with you when calling a poison control center or doctor or going for
treatment.
If inhaled:
Remove the affected individual into fresh air and keep the person calm.
If on skin:
Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15 - 20 minutes.
If in eyes:
Hold eyes open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present,
after first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing.
If swallowed:
Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth if the victim is unconscious or having convulsions. Do not
induce vomiting. Have person sip a glass of water if able to swallow.
Note to physician
Antidote: No known specific antidote.
Treatment: Treat symptomatically. Anticonvulsant therapy as routinely administered to
humans. Based on animal studies diazepam and phenobarbital prevented
convulsions. Due to the slow elimination of the active compound and its
metabolites, the treatment must be continued for several days, gradually
decreasing the dose of anticonvulsant based on the clinical response.
