Section 3: Hazards Identification
   Mercury salts are poisonous by ingestion and inhalation of dust. Acute effects include kidney failure.
   Emergency Overview:
   Prolonged exposure may cause heritable genetic damage and impaired fertility.
   Primary Routes of Exposure:       Ingestion, skin, Inhalation of dust.    
   Eye Contact:       May cause mild to severe irritation of the eyes. May deposit mercury in the lens of the eye.    
   Skin Contact:       May cause mild to severe irritation of the skin. Toxic in contact with skin.    
   Toxic by inhalation. Dust may cause severe respiratory and gastrointestinal distress, and may damage the
   Inhalation:
   central nervous system.
   Very toxic if swallowed. Lack of appetite, abdominal cramps, vomiting, kidney failure, paralysis. Mercury binds
   Ingestion:
   to thiol groups of protein.
   Poison. Stomach upset and pain, mouth pain, vomiting, excessive salivation, urine production stops, urine
   Acute Health Affects:
   products appear in the blood, ataxia (difficulty in moving).
   The chronic effects of mercury poisoning include stomatitis, tremors, psychic disturbances, excessive
   Chronic Health Affects:
   salivation, dermatitis, and pain on chewing. May cause heritable genetic damage and impair fertility.
   NTP:       No    
   IARC:       No    
   OSHA:       No    

SECTION 4: First Aid Measures
   Immediately flush the eyes with copious amounts of water for at least 10-15 minutes. A victim may need
   Eye Exposure:
   assistance in keeping their eye lids open. Get immediate medical attention.
   Wash the affected area with water. Remove contaminated clothes if necessary. Apply calcium gluconate jelly
   Skin Exposure:
   or water soluble calcium salts as antidote. Seek medical assistance.
   Remove the victim to fresh air. Closely monitor the victim for signs of respiratory problems, such as difficulty
   Inhalation:
   in breathing, coughing, wheezing, or pain. In such cases seek immediate medical assistance.
   Seek medical attention immediately. Keep the victim calm. Give the victim water (only if conscious). Induce
   Ingestion:
   vomiting only if directed by medical personnel.
