Customer Question

my husband got refrigeration freon in his eyes. He flushed with lots of running water. Should I take him to the hospital?

My research indicates that flushing the eyes is appropriate first aid
for Freon contamination. However, since there are different types
(and presumably different concentrations) of freon -- I strongly advise
you to called poison control at 1-800-222-1222 -- Just to cover all the
bases.



Freon can cause respiratory and heart problems, if inhaled -- so if
there is any chance of inhalation having taken place, a trip to the ER
would certainly be warranted -- just to be on the safe side.
