ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- WITH POISONING/EXPOSURE
- Copper sulfate is a strong irritant to skin and mucous membranes, including nose, throat, and eyes.
- Burning copper sulfate may produce irritating or poisonous gases, which may be irritating to the respiratory tract and lungs.
- Symptoms generally occur within 15 minutes to 1 hour after ingestion. Initial presenting signs and symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, salivation, and metallic taste. Stools, vomitus, saliva, and mucous membranes are often stained green or blue. Extensive corrosion and necrosis of the gastrointestinal tract, with possible perforation, may occur due to the corrosive nature of copper sulfate.
- Severe poisonings may progress to hematemesis, melena, jaundice, hypotension, gastrointestinal bleeding, and hemolysis. Refractory shock and hepatic and renal failure with coma may develop after several days.
- Suicide attempts with intravenous and subcutaneous copper sulfate resulted in acute renal failure, gastrointestinal bleeding, coagulopathy, metabolic acidosis, hemolysis, hepatic injury, and death. Initial symptoms of vomiting, abdominal pain, hematemesis, and diarrhea began within 15 minutes of the injections.
