3 .HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS: Inhalation of carbon monoxide can reduce the ability of the blood to
carry oxygen to the body and may adversely affect fetal development. Effects depend on the level of
exposure and may include headaches, dizziness, convulsions, loss of consciousness and death. Carbon
monoxide may also adversely affect fetal development.
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Inhalation
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY OVEREXPOSURE: None Known. Recovery from
carbon monoxide may be adversely affected by obesity, alcoholism and chronic heart disease.
OTHER EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE: Contact with rapidly expanding gas near the point of release
may cause frostbite.
OSHA Regulatory Status: This material is classified as hazardous under OSHA regulations.

4. First Aid Measures
Inhalation: Immediately remove victim to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, give
artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. The physician should be
informed that the patient has inhaled toxic quantities of carbon monoxide.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes.
Skin contact: Immediately flush with copious amount of water for at least 15 minutes.
Ingestion: None\
