    Medical attention is required. Consult a doctor. Show this safety data sheet (SDS) to the doctor in attendance.

    If inhaled

    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.

    Following skin contact

    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention .

    Following eye contact

    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

    Following ingestion

    Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .

    4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

    no data available

    4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary

    Emergency and Supportive Measures: In obtunded patients, maintain an open airway and assist ventilation if necessary. Administer supplemental oxygen. Treat coma, seizures, and hyperthermia if they occur. In dehydrated patients, replace fluid deficits with intravenous crystalloid solutions. Initial treatment should include repletion of sodium and water . Once fluid deficits are replaced, give hypotonic (eg, half-normal saline) solutions because continued administration of normal saline often leads to hypernatremia, especially in patients with lithium-induced nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.

    5. Fire-fighting measures

    5.1 Extinguishing media

    Suitable extinguishing media

    This chemical is a combustible solid. Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray, or alcohol foam extinguishers. Poisonous gases are produced in fire. If material or contaminated runoff enters waterways, notify downstream users of potentially contaminated waters. Notify local health and fire officials and pollution control agencies. From a secure, explosion-proof location, use water spray to cool exposed containers. If cooling streams are ineffective (venting sound increases in volume and pitch, tank discolors, or shows any signs of deforming), withdraw immediately to a secure position. If employees are expected to fight fires, they must be trained and equipped in OSHA 1910.156.

    5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical

    Not combustible.

    5.3 Special protective actions for fire-fighters

    In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.

    6. Accidental release measures

    6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

    Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.

    6.2 Environmental precautions

    Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.

    6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

    Evacuate persons not wearing protective equipment from area of spill or leak until clean-up is complete. Remove all ignition sources. Collect powdered material in the most convenient and safe manner and deposit in sealed containers. Ventilate area after clean-up is complete. It may be necessary to contain and dispose of this chemical as a hazardous waste. If material or contaminated runoff enters waterways, notify downstream users of potentially contaminated waters. Contact your Department of Environmental Protection or your regional office of the federal EPA for specific recommendations. If employees are required to clean-up spills, they must be properly trained and equipped. OSHA 1910.120(q) may be applicable.

    7. Handling and storage

    7.1 Precautions for safe handling

    Handling in a well ventilated place. Wear suitable protective clothing. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Use non-sparking tools. Prevent fire caused by electrostatic discharge steam.
