    Inhalation
    If the victim is not breathing, perform m outh-to-m outh resuscitation. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
    w aistband. If breathing is difficult, oxygen can be adm inistered. Seek m edical attention if respiration problem s do not
    improve.
    Ingestion
    IN D U C E V O M ITIN G by sticking finger in throat. Low er the head so that the vom it w ill not reenter the m outh and throat.
    Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or w aistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform m outh-to-m outh
