Arsina: what to do?

dolori

Arsine is a gas that is handled in its pure state in industry or is unexpectedly released from other metals when they come into contact with nascent hydrogen. Arsine has the property of hemolyzing mature erythrocytes and even at very low concentrations is inhaled, rapidly reaching the blood through the lungs. The main symptoms are vomiting and abdominal pain. In severe cases, pulmonary edema develops and it is possible for the patient to go into a coma.

Diagnosis and treatment

The diagnosis is almost always supported by the medical history. The measurement of arsenic in blood and tissues is almost always retrospective. Transfusions should be started as soon as possible, and renal damage should be treated conservatively.
