Correct and very quick application is very important:

When detecting gas, do the following:

  • Scream gas (warns others in the area).
  • Close your eyes and hold your breath (possibly preventing absorption through the respiratory tract).
  • Remove the helmet and place it between the legs with the opening downwards. (avoid placing it on the ground as it can be flooded with liquefied gas, opening downwards to prevent aerosols from falling into the helmet).
  • Put on a gas mask – Keep your eyes closed and still hold your breath).
  • Ventilate the mask. (Blow out and in 3 times) Breathe in enough for fresh air to enter the mask, but not so far that the gas contained in the mask goes all the way down into the lungs, blow out and repeat 3-4 times. Open your eyes.
  • Check if colleagues need help putting on a mask or for first aid.
  • Put on a fume hood (if already around the neck), helmet and gloves. Check for liquid contamination on the emergency suit.
  • Check again if others need help.

Mask and filter protect against:

Chemical warfare agents

Chemical warfare agents pose a danger in connection with acts of terrorism. In this sheet, there is a short introduction to the various factors that you must be aware of.

In general

Chemical warfare agents are substances specifically selected and designed to do the most damage possible. They are developed by the military for military use (war). For all of them, the following applies:

  • They are highly toxic substances.
  • They attack skin, lungs, nerves, blood, etc.

They can be laid out:

  • in vapor form (gas cloud).
  • as liquids.
  • as aerosols (small liquid droplets that behave like a gas).

They are divided into 2 main groups according to mode of operation:

  • Loss-making (fatal).
  • Inactivating (not fatal, but prevents people from functioning normally).

The losses are further divided into 4 subgroups:

  • Nerve gases.
  • Blister gases.
  • Asphyxiating gases.
  • Blood poisoning.

Nerve gases

Makes a "mess" in the nerve pathways. Muscles will cramp. Treatment: Atropine is used to relax the muscles. Example: Sarin gas, VX gas.

Blister gas

Forms large oozing "blisters" and sores on affected areas - internal and external. In doing so, they also draw fluid out of the body. Treatment: Treat as burns. Example: Mustard gas, Livicit.

Asphyxiating gas

Draws fluid out of the lung alveoli, whereby oxygen cannot be transferred to the blood. First aid: Fresh air and step-by-step first aid for the unconscious. For example: Chlorine, Phosgene.

Blood poisoning

Prevents oxygen from being absorbed into the blood by binding to the hemoglobin in the blood. Works pretty much like CO. This gas quickly breaks down the filter in a gas mask, which is why it must be changed. For example: Zyklon B, Hydrogen Cyanide.

The inactivating gases are divided into 2 subgroups

  • Psychogases.
  • Tears/nausea gases.

Psychogases

There are a number of different reactions depending on the gas. They can be dull, uplifting (as if you were drunk), confusing, etc. Example BZ gas.

Tears/nausea gases

Has an extremely irritating effect on mucous membranes, which is why the eyes and nose will start to run.
