ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- WITH POISONING/EXPOSURE
- Nitric oxide inhalation is approximately 1/5 as toxic as nitrogen dioxide. It is an inhalant toxin and is a compressed gas or vapor at normal temperatures. Human toxicity data is very limited.
- Initial signs/symptoms may include coughing and burning in the throat and chest, nausea, fatigue and shortness of breath.
- Severe exposures to nitric oxide may result in methemoglobinemia, hypoxemia, pulmonary edema, lung inflammation and decreased pulmonary vascular resistance, particularly in patients with heart disease or pulmonary hypertension.
- The TLV for nitric oxide is based on its ability to form methemoglobin.
- Nitric oxide is a skin, eye, and mucous membrane irritant.
- Latent symptoms may include nervousness, rapid and shallow breathing, cyanosis, mental confusion, and finally loss of consciousness.
