ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Calcium cyanamide is an irritant of the eyes, skin, and mucous membranes. Dermal ulceration or sensitization may occur with repeated exposure. Respiratory tract irritation with pneumonitis or pulmonary edema may occur. Esophageal or gastrointestinal tract irritation may occur if agricultural or industrial products are ingested.
- When ingested with ethanol a characteristic vasomotor response similar to that seen with disulfiram may occur. This reaction includes flushing of the face, upper body, and arms with nausea and vomiting, a sensation of fatigue, chest discomfort, dyspnea, headache, and shivering. Cardiovascular collapse may occur rarely.
- Cyanide ion is NOT released following systemic absorption of calcium cyanamide.
