ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Cyanogen bromide causes strong irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and respiratory tract. It can release bromine or hydrogen bromide during hydrolysis or thermal decomposition and produce eye and serious respiratory tract irritation with pulmonary edema or hemorrhages.
- Cyanogen bromide is a severe skin irritant, and can produce substantial dermal burns after direct contact. Ingestion might cause gastrointestinal irritation as well as systemic cyanide poisoning.
- RELEASED HYDROGEN CYANIDE -
- Cyanogen bromide can release HYDROGEN CYANIDE gas. Hydrogen cyanide gas exposure may produce death within minutes. Lesser exposures may produce nausea, vomiting, palpitations, confusion, hyperventilation, anxiety and vertigo. Severe hypoxic signs in the absence of cyanosis suggest the diagnosis.
- Initially the patient may experience flushing, tachycardia, tachypnea, headache and dizziness. This may progress to agitation, stupor, coma, apnea, generalized convulsions, noncardiogenic pulmonary edema, bradycardia, cardiac arrhythmias or conduction abnormalities, hypotension, metabolic acidosis and death. Cyanosis is generally a late finding and does not occur until the stage of circulatory collapse and apnea.
