If poisoning occurs, immediately contacta doctor or Poisons Information Centre (Telephone 13 11 26), and

follow the advice given. Show this Material SafetyDataSheet to a doctor.

Inhalation: Presentationasa blockbait means inhalation isunlikely.

Skin contact: Washoff thoroughlywithplenty of soapandwater, if available withpolyethyleneglycol400,

subsequently rinsewithwater. If symptomspersist, calla physician.

Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plentyof water, alsounder theeyelids, for at least 15 minutes.

Removecontact lenses, ifpresent, after the first 5 minutes, thencontinuerinsingeye. Get

medical attention if irritationdevelopsand persists.

Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. Rinse mouth. Calla physicianor poisoncontrolcenter

immediately.

First Aid facilities: Provide washing facilities inthe workplace (includingeye-wash).

Medical attention: Coumatetralylinhibits vitaminK1-dependant coagulation.

Symptoms

Stateofshock, nosebleeding, bloody vomiting, abdominal pain, back pain.

Treatment

Treat symptomatically.

Notefor physicians

Gastric lavageshouldbeperformed incasesof significantingestions within the first 2

hours, followedby administrationof activatedcharcoaland sodium sulfate.The

application of activated charcoal andsodiumsulfate isalwaysadviseable. The antidote

for coumatetralyl is vitamin K1. The efficacyofvitamin K1 treatment shouldbeassessed

by monitoring the coagulationparameters, such asprothrombin timeor INR.Initial

treatment maybedonewithintravenous vitamin K1insevere cases, whileusually oral

vitamin K1 shouldbe sufficient.

Severepoisoning cases may require the initial application ofblood products:

- wholeblood

- fresh frozenplasmaand freshblood should beusedincases of severebleeding to

rapidly restore blood clottingfactors.

Transfusions may berequiredin cases of significant bloodloss.

It is expectedthat repeated intakeof coumatetralyl would berequiredto cause anactual

poisoning, yet itis prudent tocontrol coagulationparameters for several days after

ingestions.
