2. AcetonitrileCyanide antidotes: Due to delayed toxicity, repeated doses of Cyanide antidotes may be needed for acetonitrile poisoningirrespective of route of exposure.(For cyanide antidotes see below)
3. Acrylonitrile 1. Cyanide antidotes and
2. N-acetyl cysteine should be administered in by I/V route as follows150 mg/kg in 200 ml of 5% Dextrose over 60 min,then 50 mg/kg in 500 ml of 5% Dextroseover 4 hrthen 100 mg/kg in 1 L of 5% Dextrose over16 hr
4. AlkaliIngestion: Give the person half to one glass of milk/water.Do not induce vomitingDermal/Eye exposure: Wash with plenty of water or saline for 15-20 minutesInhalation: Supportive treatmentNote: Do not use acid to neutralize alkali
5. AmmoniaInhalation: Move the person to fresh air Dermal/Eye exposure: Wash with plenty of water or saline for 15-20 minutes Ingestion: Give the person half to one glass of milk/water. Do not induce vomiting
6. Aniline, Nitrobenzene, Toluidine and other dye intermediatesCyanosis occurs when methemoglobin levels exceed 15%. Give 1-2 mg/kg of 1% Methylene blue I/V slowly over a period of five minutes. Repeat doses of methylene blue may be needed . Do not exceed total dose of 7 mg/kg.
7. AntimonyA. Treatment is primarily symptomatic. There are no specific antidotes, but DMSA, D-penicillamine, BAL, and DMPS (Unithiol) have been used as chelating agents.
