24. FIRST AID:Contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26.
If Swallowed - Contact a doctor. If more than 15 minutes from medical help, rinse mouth with water, give plenty of water to drink, induce vomiting with fingers in the throat or preferably with Ipecac Syrup APF.
If on Skin - Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. If redness, swelling, blistering or irritation occurs, seek medical advice.
If in Eyes - Flush with water for 15 minutes then see a doctor.
If Inhaled - Remove patient from contaminated area to fresh air. Seek medical advice.
Advice to Doctor: Treat symptomatically and as for chlorinated insecticides. Evacuation of the stomach followed by activated charcoal is advisable. Diazepam may be used for treatment of convulsions. Do not administer adrenaline because chlorinated hydrocarbons may sensitise the heart to catecholamines. Monitor for renal, adrenal dysfunction and myocardial irritability, the latter independent of administered adrenergic amines.
