|The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
Rinse contaminated clothing with plenty of water because of fire hazard.
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
