Inhalation of Polyvinyl Chloride Fumes


Presentation

  • A worker cutting a PVC pipe on a construction site Image credit: Toa55 / Shutterstock.com Best known in the form of the ever-present white piping seen in basements of buildings, the domestic use of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) could be considered a double-edged[azom.com]

  • Bellamy's suggestion, saying that it did not consider the presence of PVC likely to pose a hazard. But the authority also said in 1982 that it did not plan to use the material in future wiring projects.[nytimes.com]
  • If the situation is urgent, such as the inhalation of PVC fumes, the NIH suggests contacting a local poison control center or emergency center.[azom.com]
  • As the name suggests, though, vinyl dolls with heat-set paint must be heated for it to set; otherwise, it will remain wet and runny without taking hold.[reborndollmart.com]

Prevention

  • Yet the admission rates to hospital, length of stay, investigations, antimicrobial therapy and prevention strategies vary greatly from one geographic area to the next, and the scientific basis for many of our management strategies for pneumonia is weak[books.google.com]
  • The danger can be prevented by showering your hands and face after handling PVC materials. If ingestion occurs, drink two glasses of water and consult a doctor.[hunker.com]
