SIMPLE ASPHYXIANT
Effects of Overexposure:CONTACT TO SKIN WITH LIQUID HYDROGEN OR COLD
GAS VAPORS CAN CAUSE CRYOGENIC (EXTREME LOW TEMPERATURE) BURNS
AND FREEZE TISSUES.

First Aid

First Aid:IF CRYOGENIC LIQUID OR COLD BOIL OFF GAS CONTACTS A WORKER'S
SKIN OR EYES, FROZEN TISSUES SHOULD BE FLOODED OR SOAKED
W/TEPID WATER. DO NOT USE HOT WATER!!DO NOT USE BURN OINTMENTS OR
GREASY MATE RIALS ON BURNS WHICH SHOW MORE THANLOCALIZED REDDENING.
PERSONS SUFFERING FROM LACK OF OXYGEN SHOULD BE MOVED TO AREAS
W/NORMAL ATMOSPHERE.RESPIRATION/OXYGEN SHOULD BE GIVEN IF NOT
BREATHING.
