4. FIRST AID MEASURES
General advice
: Remove victim to uncontaminated area wearing self contained breathing
apparatus. Keep victim warm and rested. Call a doctor. Apply artificial
respiration if breathing stopped.
Eye contact
: Seek medical advice.
Skin contact
: Seek medical advice.
Ingestion
: Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure.
Inhalation
: Consult a physician after significant exposure. Move to fresh air. If breathing
has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen
may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin
cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.
Most important
symptoms/effects - acuate
and delayed
: If oxygen is administered to persons with chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease, raising the oxygen concentration in the blood depresses their
breathing and raises their retained carbon dioxide to a dangerous level.

5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing media
: All known extinguishing media can be used.
Specific hazards
: Most cylinders are designed to vent contents when exposed to elevated
temperatures.
Further information
: Some materials that are noncombustible in air will burn in the presence of an
oxygen enriched atmosphere (greater than 23.5%). Fire resistant clothing may
burn and offer no protection in oxygen rich atmospheres.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions,
Protective Equipment, and
Emergency Procedures
: Clothing exposed to high concentrations may retain oxygen 30 minutes or
longer and become a potential fire hazard. Stay away from ignition sources.
Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus
when entering area unless atmosphere is proved to be safe. Ventilate the area.
Environmental precautions
: Do not discharge into any place where its accumulation could be dangerous.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Methods for cleaning up
: Ventilate the area.
Additional advice
: If possible, stop flow of product. Increase ventilation to the release area and
monitor concentrations. If leak is from cylinder or cylinder valve, call the Air
Products emergency telephone number. If the leak is in the user's system,
close the cylinder valve, safely vent the pressure, and purge with an inert gas
before attempting repairs.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling
All gauges, valves, regulators, piping and equipment to be used in oxygen service must be cleaned for oxygen
service. Oxygen is not to be used as a substitute for compressed air. Never use an oxygen jet for cleaning
purposes of any sort, especially clothing, as it increases the likelihood of an engulfing fire. Only experienced and
properly instructed persons should handle compressed gases/cryogenic liquids. Protect cylinders from physical
damage; do not drag, roll, slide or drop. Do not allow storage area temperature to exceed 50°C (122°F). Before
using the product, determine its identity by reading the label. Know and understand the properties and hazards
of the product before use. When doubt exists as to the correct handling procedure for a particular gas, contact
the supplier. Do not remove or deface labels provided by the supplier for the identification of the cylinder
contents. When moving cylinders, even for short distances, use a cart (trolley, hand truck, etc.) designed to
transport cylinders. Leave valve protection caps in place until the container has been secured against either a
wall or bench or placed in a container stand and is ready for use. Use an adjustable strap wrench to remove
over-tight or rusted caps. Before connecting the container, check the complete gas system for suitability,
particularly for pressure rating and materials. Before connecting the container for use, ensure that back feed
from the system into the container is prevented. Ensure the complete gas system is compatible for pressure
rating and materials of construction. Ensure the complete gas system has been checked for leaks before use.
Employ suitable pressure regulating devices on all containers when the gas is being emitted to systems with

lower pressure rating than that of the container. Never insert an object (e.g. wrench, screwdriver, pry bar, etc.)
into valve cap openings. Doing so may damage valve, causing a leak to occur. If user experiences any difficulty
operating cylinder valve discontinue use and contact supplier. Close container valve after each use and when
empty, even if still connected to equipment. Never attempt to repair or modify container valves or safety relief
devices. Damaged valves should be reported immediately to the supplier. Do not use containers as rollers or
supports or for any other purpose than to contain the gas as supplied. Never strike an arc on a compressed gas
cylinder or make a cylinder a part of an electrical circuit. Do not smoke while handling product or cylinders.
Never re-compress a gas or a gas mixture without first consulting the supplier. Never attempt to transfer gases
from one cylinder/container to another. Always use backflow protective device in piping. When returning cylinder
install valve outlet cap or plug leak tight. Never permit oil, grease, or other readily combustible substances to
come into contact with valves or containers containing oxygen or other oxidants. Do not use rapidly opening
valves (e.g. ball valves). Open valve slowly to avoid pressure shock. Never pressurize the entire system at once.
Use only with equipment cleaned for oxygen service and rated for cylinder pressure. Never use direct flame or
electrical heating devices to raise the pressure of a container. Containers should not be subjected to
temperatures above 50°C (122°F).
Storage
Open/close valve slowly. Close when not in use. Wear Safety Eye Protection. Check Safety Data Sheet before
use. Do not change or force fit connections. Always keep container in upright position. Use a back flow
preventative device in the piping. Use only with equipment cleaned for oxygen service and rated for cylinder
pressure. Use only with equipment of compatible materials of construction, rated for cylinder pressure.
Containers should be stored in a purpose build compound which should be well ventilated, preferably in the
open air. Full containers should be stored so that oldest s tock is used first. Stored containers should be
periodically checked for general condition and leakage. Observe all regulations and local requirements
regarding storage of containers. Protect containers stored in the open against rusting and extremes of weather.
Containers should not be stored in conditions likely to encourage corrosion. Containers should be stored in the
vertical position and properly secured to prevent toppling. The container valves should be tightly closed and
where appropriate valve outlets should be capped or plugged. Container valve guards or caps should be in
place. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Store containers in location free from fire
risk and away from sources of heat and ignition. Full and empty cylinders should be segregated. Do not allow
storage temperature to exceed 50°C (122°F). Display "No Smoking or Open Flames" signs in the storage
areas. Return empty containers in a timely manner. Flammable storage areas should be separated from oxygen
and other oxidizers by a minimum distance of 20 ft. (6.1 m.) or by a barrier of non-combustible material at least 5
ft. (1.5 m.) high, having a fire resistance rating of at least 1/2 hour.
Technical measures/Precautions
Containers should be segregated in the storage area according to the various categories (e.g. flammable, toxic,
etc.) and in accordance whit local regulations.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

Delayed and Immediate Effects and Chronic Effects from Short and Long Term Exposure
If oxygen is administered to persons with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, raising the oxygen concentration in the
blood depresses their breathing and raises their retained carbon dioxide to a dangerous level.
Premature infants exposed to high oxygen concentrations may suffer delayed retinal damage that can progress to retinal
detachment and blindness. Retinal damage may also occur in adults exposed to 100% oxygen for extended periods (24
to 48 hr). At two or more atmospheres central nervous system (CNS) toxicity occurs. Symptoms include nausea,
vomiting, dizziness or vertigo, muscle twitching, vision changes and loss of consciousness and generalized seizures. At
three atmospheres, CNS toxicity occurs in less than two hours and at six atmospheres in only a few minutes.
