Section 4. FIRST AID MEASURES
4.1 Description of first aid measures
Eye Contact: Have someone contact a physician or poison control center immediately. Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water for up to 5 minutes while holding the eyelids apart. Eye contact will require further evaluation and possibly treatment. Continue rinsing the eyes during transport to the hospital.
Skin Contact: Have someone contact a physician or poison control center immediately. Immediately flush with large quantities of water for up to 5 minutes after contact and completely remove all contaminated clothing including shoes and boots. Flushing with water for up to 5 minutes is generally sufficient to effectively remove cyanide from the patient's skin. Rescue workers should protect themselves against exposure.
Inhalation: Have someone contact a physician or poison control center immediately. If conscious but symptoms (nausea, difficult breathing, dizziness, etc.) are evident, first responders may give oxygen. If consciousness is impaired or patient is unconscious, oxygen and amyl nitrite should be administered by trained qualified medical squads. Amyl nitrite is given by breaking an ampoule in a gauze pad and inserting into the lip of the oxygen resuscitator mask for 15 seconds, and then taking it away for 15 seconds. Repeat this 5 or 6 times. If necessary, use a fresh ampoule every 3 minutes until the patient regains consciousness (usually 1 - 4 ampoules). Administer oxygen continuously. Guard against the ampoule entering the patient's mouth. Move the patient to an uncontaminated area. Keep the patient warm and calm.
Ingestion: Have someone call a physician or poison control center immediately. If conscious but symptoms (nausea, difficult breathing, dizziness, etc.) are evident, first responders may give oxygen. If consciousness is impaired, administer oxygen and amyl nitrite as directed under Inhalation section. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting as this could interfere with resuscitator use. If the patient is conscious, trained, qualified medical squads may give activated charcoal slurry. (50 grams of activated carbon slurried in 400 ml of water). Give 5 ml/1 kg. of wt. - about 350 ml for an average adult.
