ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- ACUTE INHALATION EXPOSURE - Even a single exposure to cadmium oxide fume can cause (after several hours) dry throat, cough, aches and pains, chills, chest pain, breathing difficulty, rales, and potentially fatal non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema. Cadmium oxide is odorless and POISONING FROM THE FUME CAN OCCUR AT CONCENTRATIONS TOO LOW TO CAUSE IRRITATION.
- Kidney or liver damage may occur several days later in survivors of acute exposure, and respiratory symptoms may persist for months.
- ORAL EXPOSURE - Ingestion can cause severe gastrointestinal distress and vomiting.
- CHRONIC EXPOSURES have been associated with severe progressive emphysema, kidney damage (renal tubular dysfunction with proteinuria), osteomalacia, and possible cancer of the respiratory tract and prostate.
