Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES


SWALLOWED
Not considered a normal route of entry.
路 If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting.
路 If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if
possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration.
路 Observe the patient carefully.
路 Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness;
i.e. becoming unconscious.
路 Give water to rinse out mouth, then provide liquid slowly and as much as casualty can
comfortably drink.
路 Seek medical advice.

EYE
If aerosols come in contact with the eyes:
路 Immediately hold the eyelids apart and flush the eye continuously for at least 15
minutes with fresh running water.
路 Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and
moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids.
路 Transport to hospital or doctor without delay.
路 Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled
personnel.

SKIN
If solids or aerosol mists are deposited upon the skin:
路 Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available).
路 Remove any adhering solids with industrial skin cleansing cream.
路 DO NOT use solvents.
路 Seek medical attention in the event of irritation.

INHALED
If aerosols, fumes or combustion products are inhaled:
路 Remove to fresh air.
路 Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested.
路 Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where
possible, prior to initiating first aid procedures.

trained. Perform CPR if necessary.
路 Transport to hospital, or doctor.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN
Treat symptomatically.
For sub-chronic and chronic exposures to isocyanates:
路 This material may be a potent pulmonary sensitiser which causes bronchospasm even in
patients without prior airway hyperreactivity.
路 Clinical symptoms of exposure involve mucosal irritation of respiratory and
gastrointestinal tracts.
路 Conjunctival irritation, skin inflammation (erythema, pain vesiculation) and
gastrointestinal disturbances occur soon after exposure.
路 Pulmonary symptoms include cough, burning, substernal pain and dyspnoea.
路 Some cross-sensitivity occurs between different isocyanates.
路 Noncardiogenic pulmonary edema and bronchospasm are the most serious consequences of
exposure. Markedly symptomatic patients should receive oxygen, ventilatory support and an
intravenous line.
路 Treatment for asthma includes inhaled sympathomimetics (epinephrine [adrenalin],
terbutaline) and steroids.
路 Activated charcoal (1 g/kg) and a cathartic (sorbitol, magnesium citrate) may be useful
for ingestion.
路 Mydriatics, systemic analgesics and topical antibiotics (Sulamyd) may be used for
corneal abrasions.
路 There is no effective therapy for sensitised workers.
[Ellenhorn and Barceloux; Medical Toxicology]
NOTE: Isocyanates cause airway restriction in naive individuals with the degree of
response dependant on the concentration and duration of exposure. They induce smooth
muscle contraction which leads to bronchoconstrictive episodes. Acute changes in lung
function, such as decreased FEV1, may not represent sensitivity.

FOOTNOTES
1 PROTECTIVE ACTION ZONE is defined as the area in which people are at risk of harmful exposure. This zone
assumes that random changes in wind direction confines the vapour plume to an area within 30 degrees on
either side of the predominant wind direction, resulting in a crosswind protective action distance equal
to the downwind protective action distance.
2 PROTECTIVE ACTIONS should be initiated to the extent possible, beginning with those closest to the spill
and working away from the site in the downwind direction. Within the protective action zone a level of
vapour concentration may exist resulting in nearly all unprotected persons becoming incapacitated and
unable to take protective action and/or incurring serious or irreversible health effects.
3 INITIAL ISOLATION ZONE is determined as an area, including upwind of the incident, within which a high
probability of localised wind reversal may expose nearly all persons without appropriate protection to
life-threatening concentrations of the material.
4 SMALL SPILLS involve a leaking package of 200 litres (55 US gallons) or less, such as a drum (jerrican or
box with inner containers). Larger packages leaking less than 200 litres and compressed gas leaking from
a small cylinder are also considered "small spills".
LARGE SPILLS involve many small leaking packages or a leaking package of greater than 200 litres, such as
a cargo tank, portable tank or a "one-tonne" compressed gas cylinder.
5 Guide 126 is taken from the US DOT emergency response guide book.
6 IERG information is derived from CANUTEC - Transport Canada.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLANNING GUIDELINES (ERPG)

INGREDIENT DATA
POLYMERIC DIPHENYLMETHANE DIISOCYANATE:
Some jurisdictions require that health surveillance be conducted on occupationally
exposed workers. This should emphasise:
路 demography, occupational and medical history and health advice
路 completion of a standardised respiratory questionnaire
路 physical examination of the respiratory system and skin
路 standardised respiratory function tests such as FEV1, FVC and FEV1/FVC.

POLYPROPYLENE GLYCOL GLYCERYL ETHER:
None assigned.

DIMETHYL ETHER:
The no-effect-level for dimethyl ether is somewhere between 2000 ppm
(rabbits) and 50,000 ppm (humans) with possible cardiac sensitisation
occurring around 200,000 ppm (dogs). The AIHA has adopted a safety factor
of 100 in respect to the 50,000 ppm level in its recommendation for a
workplace environmental exposure level (WEEL) which is thought to protect
against both narcotic and sensitising effects. This level is consistent
with the TLV-TWA of 400 ppm for diethyl ether and should be easily
achievable using current technologies. The use of the traditionally
allowable excursion of 1.25 to the level of 6.25 ppm is felt to be more
than adequate as an upper safe limit of exposure.
Human data:
50,000 ppm (12 mins): Feelings of mild intoxication.
75,000 ppm (12 mins): As above plus slight lack of attenuation.
82,000 ppm (12 mins): Some incoordination, slight blurring of vision
(30 mins): As above plus analgesia of the face and rushing of
blood to the face.
100,000 ppm (10-20 mins): Narcotic symptoms
(64 mins) : Sickness (assumed to be nausea)
144,000 ppm (36 mins): Unconsciousness

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

EYE
路 Safety glasses with side shields.
路 Chemical goggles.
路 Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and
concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or
restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a
review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account
of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal
and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of chemical exposure,
begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens
should be removed at the first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be
removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly. [CDC
NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59].

HANDS/FEET
No special equipment needed when handling small quantities.
OTHERWISE:
For potentially moderate exposures:
Wear general protective gloves, eg. light weight rubber gloves.
For potentially heavy exposures:
Wear chemical protective gloves, eg. PVC. and safety footwear.
NOTE: The material may produce skin sensitisation in predisposed individuals. Care must
be taken, when removing gloves and other protective equipment, to avoid all possible skin
contact.

OTHER
No special equipment needed when handling small quantities.
OTHERWISE:
路 Overalls.
路 Skin cleansing cream.
路 Eyewash unit.
路 Do not spray on hot surfaces.

RESPIRATOR
Selection of the Class and Type of respirator will depend upon the level of breathing
zone contaminant and the chemical nature of the contaminant. Protection Factors (defined
as the ratio of contaminant outside and inside the mask) may also be important.

redness and tears.

SKIN
The material may accentuate any pre-existing dermatitis condition.
Spray mist may produce discomfort.
Alkyl ethers may defat and dehydrate the skin producing dermatoses. Absorption may
produce headache, dizziness, and central nervous system depression.
The material may cause severe skin irritation after prolonged or repeated exposure and
may produce on contact skin redness, swelling, the production of vesicles, scaling and
thickening of the skin. Repeated exposures may produce severe ulceration.

INHALED
Inhalation of aerosols (mists, fumes), generated by the material during the course of
normal handling, may be harmful.
WARNING:Intentional misuse by concentrating/inhaling contents may be lethal.
Inhalation of high concentrations of gas/vapour causes lung irritation with coughing and
nausea, central nervous depression with headache and dizziness, slowing of reflexes,
fatigue and inco-ordination.

CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS
Persons with a history of asthma or other respiratory problems or are known to be
sensitised, should not be engaged in any work involving the handling of isocyanates.
[CCTRADE-Bayer, APMF].
Inhaling this product is more likely to cause a sensitisation reaction in some persons
compared to the general population.
Skin contact with the material is more likely to cause a sensitisation reaction in some
persons compared to the general population.
Sensitisation may result in allergic dermatitis responses including rash, itching, hives
or swelling of extremities.
Respiratory sensitisation may result in allergic/asthma like responses; from coughing and
minor breathing difficulties to bronchitis with wheezing, gasping.
Chronic exposure to alkyl ethers may result in loss of appetite, excessive thirst,
fatigue, and weight loss.

TOXICITY AND IRRITATION
Asthma-like symptoms may continue for months or even years after exposure to the material
ceases. This may be due to a non-allergenic condition known as reactive airways
dysfunction syndrome (RADS) which can occur following exposure to high levels of highly
irritating compound. Key criteria for the diagnosis of RADS include the absence of
preceding respiratory disease, in a non-atopic individual, with abrupt onset of
persistent asthma-like symptoms within minutes to hours of a documented exposure to the
irritant. A reversible airflow pattern, on spirometry, with the presence of moderate to
severe bronchial hyperreactivity on methacholine challenge testing and the lack of
minimal lymphocytic inflammation, without eosinophilia, have also been included in the
criteria for diagnosis of RADS. RADS (or asthma) following an irritating inhalation is an
infrequent disorder with rates related to the concentration of and duration of exposure
to the irritating substance. Industrial bronchitis, on the other hand, is a disorder that
occurs as result of exposure due to high concentrations of irritating substance (often
particulate in nature) and is completely reversible after exposure ceases. The disorder
is characterised by dyspnea, cough and mucous production.
Allergic reactions involving the respiratory tract are usually due to interactions
between IgE antibodies and allergens and occur rapidly. Allergic potential of the
allergen and period of exposure often determine the severity of symptoms. Some people may
be genetically more prone than others, and exposure to other irritants may aggravate
symptoms. Allergy causing activity is due to interactions with proteins.

Section 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Attention should be paid to atopic diathesis, characterised by increased susceptibility
to nasal inflammation, asthma and eczema.
Exogenous allergic alveolitis is induced essentially by allergen specific immune
-complexes of the IgG type; cell-mediated reactions (T lymphocytes) may be involved. Such
allergy is of the delayed type with onset up to four hours following exposure.
Contact allergies quickly manifest themselves as contact eczema, more rarely as urticaria
or Quincke's oedema. The pathogenesis of contact eczema involves a cell-mediated (T
lymphocytes) immune reaction of the delayed type. Other allergic skin reactions, e.g.
contact urticaria, involve antibody-mediated immune reactions. The significance of the
contact allergen is not simply determined by its sensitisation potential: the
distribution of the substance and the opportunities for contact with it are equally
important. A weakly sensitising substance which is widely distributed can be a more
important allergen than one with stronger sensitising potential with which few
individuals come into contact. From a clinical point of view, substances are noteworthy
if they produce an allergic test reaction in more than 1% of the persons tested.
