4. FIRST AID MEASURES 

FIRST AID FOR INHALATION:

Remove victim to fresh air.  If not breathing, ensure airway is clear,
then give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.  If patient is having difficulty
breathing, a trained person should administer oxygen if it is available. 
Keep patient warm with blankets.  Seek medical attention immediately.  

FIRST AID FOR INGESTION:  Never administer anything by mouth to an
unconscious or convulsing person.  If patient is alert, administer 3 or
4 glasses of milk (or water).  DO NOT INDUCE vomiting.  If spontaneous
vomiting occurs, keep patient's head below hips so as to avoid
inhalation of vomitus.  Administer fluids again.  Keep patient warm with
blankets.  At the earliest opportunity, seek medical attention. 
Inducement of vomiting should only be done at the direction of a
physician or poison control centre.  See  Notes to Physician below. 

FIRST AID FOR SKIN CONTACT: For minor to moderate skin contact, quickly
flush with copious amounts of cold to tepid water using soap, for
fifteen to twenty minutes.  Begin flushing while removing any
contaminated clothing or footwear.  Remove confining objects such as
rings, watches or bracelets.  Wash clothing and decontaminate or discard
footwear before re-use.  If irritation persists, repeat flushing and
seek medical attention. 

FIRST AID FOR EYE CONTACT:  Quickly flush with copious amounts of cold
to tepid water for fifteen to twenty minutes.  Hold eyelids apart so as
to ensure full flushing of eye and surrounding tissue and areas.  Be
cautious against flushing material into unaffected areas.  Immediately
obtain medical attention.  Transfer patient to medical facility.  Where
possible, it is preferred to continue flushing during transport. 

FIRST AID EQUIPMENT AND SKILLS REQUIRED ON-SITE:  Personnel trained to
administer oxygen.  Eye-wash station equipped with flow of cool to tepid
