    Avoid breathing gas.

    INHALATION EFFECTS:

    Effects of oxygen deficiency resulting from simple asphyxiants may include: rapid breathing, diminished mental alertness, impaired muscular coordination, faulty judgement, depression of all sensations, emotional instability,
    and fatigue. As asphyxiation progresses, nausea, vomiting, prostration, and loss of consciousness may result,
    eventually leading to convulsions, coma, and death.

    Oxygen deficiency during pregnancy has produced developmental abnormalities in humans and experimental animals.

    Potential Health Effects

    Inhalation Concentrations of 10% CO2 or more can produce unconsciousness or death. Unlike simple asphyxiants, carbon dioxide has the ability to cause death even when normal oxygen levels (20-21%) are maintained. Carbon Dioxide is physiologically active, affecting circulation and breathing. At concentrations between 2 and 10%, carbon dioxide can cause nausea, dizziness, headache, mental confusion, increased blood pressure and respiratory rate. In high concentrations may cause asphyxiation. Symptoms may include loss of mobility/consciousness. Victim may not be aware of asphyxiation. Asphyxiation may bring about unconsciousness without warning and so rapidly that victim may be unable to protect themselves.
    Eye contact : Contact with liquid may cause cold burns/frostbite.
    Skin contact : Contact with liquid may cause cold burns/frostbite.
    Ingestion Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure.
    Chronic Health Hazard : Not applicable

    Exposure Guidelines

    Primary Routes of Entry : Inhalation
    Target Organs : None.
    Symptoms : Shivering fit. Sweating. Blurred vision. Headache. Increased pulse rate. Shortness of breath.
    Rapid respiration. Exposure to oxygen deficient atmosphere may cause the following symptoms: Dizziness. Salivation. Nausea. Vomiting. Loss of mobility/consciousness.

    Aggravated Medical Condition

    None known.
