Effects of Acetone on Human Health and Development: Acetone inhalation or ingestion in increased concentration over an extended period of time has been greatly related to increased sickness, loss of memory, loss of awareness, low immunity to infections/viruses as well as birth related e is considered as a dangerous chemicals for pregnant females due .

    INHALATION: Most human population studies indicate that acetone would not produced significant health effects following long-term exposure. In a series of studies, no statistically significant differences in causes of death or clinical laboratory results were observed in employees exposed to up to ppm acetone over 23 years. A key element of planning an experiment is assessing the hazards and potential risks associated with the chemicals and laboratory operations to be used. This chapter provides a practical guide for the trained laboratory personnel engaged in these activities. Section 4.B introduces the sources of information for data on toxic, flammable, reactive, and explosive chemical substances.

    adverse health effects are not anticipated to occur over specific exposure durations - One-day, Ten-day, and Lifetime - in the Drinking Water Standards and Health Advisories (DWSHA) tables. The One-day and Ten-day HAs are for a 10 kg child and the Lifetime HA is . Acetone.

These documents provide information on the health effects of exposure and material for responding to a chemical incident.

Published 1 July Last updated 8 January + show all updates. The systemic effects of inhalation exposure to acetone in humans and animals are discussed below. The highest NOAEL values and all LOAEL values for each systemic effect from each reliable study are recorded in Table 2-l and plotted in Figure Size: 2MB.

(Cited in EPA, ). Prior to the assessment, acetone was identified as a potential concern to human health. However, acetone was not considered to be a priority for assessment of potential risks to the environment.

Regardless, potential environmental effects were also evaluated in this screening assessment.

Acetone This fact sheet answers the most frequently asked health questions about acetone. For more information, you may call This fact sheet is one in a series of summaries about hazardous substances and their health effects.

This information is important because this substance may harm you. Health Effects. Absorption/Metabolism. Acetone is quickly absorbed by ingestion, inhalation, and dermal exposure.

In two experiments with humans, inhalation absorption was in the 70 to 80 percent range. There is no data for the other routes. Absorbed acetone is almost entirely eliminated from the body within a day after Size: 46KB. The ATSDR toxicological profile succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for the hazardous substance described here.

Each peer-reviewed profile identifies and reviews the key literature that describes a hazardous substance's toxicologic properties. Other pertinent literature is also presented, but is described in less. Inhalation: Take precautions to prevent a fire (e.g. remove sources of ignition).

Move victim to fresh air. Call a Poison Centre or doctor if the victim feels unwell. Skin Contact: Take off contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (e.g.

watchbands, belts).Flush with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 5 minutes. Acetone Revision date: SDS//8 Page 5 of 6 Skin corrosion/irritation –. In a draft screening assessment for health and environmental effects, Environment Canada identified no critical health effects from exposures expected to occur from occasional, intermittent use of certain products containing acetone.

The U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) sets safe workplace exposure limits. The health and regulatory values cited in this factsheet were obtained in a Health numbers are toxicological numbers from human studies, animal testing or risk assessment values developed by EPA.

b Regulatory numbers are values that have been incorporated in Government regulations, while advisory numbers. Acetone. Acetone is a clear, highly flammable liquid. It occurs naturally in plants, trees, volcanic gases, and forest fires. It is also found in vehicle exhaust, tobacco smoke, and landfill sites.

More. Acetone poses as a health risk to humans as it has many harmful effects. Acetone has proven to be highly flammable and therefore can explode or ignite easily, endangering nearby humans of serious burns.

When acetone is oxidized, it forms acetone peroxide which is a highly unstable compound which can be formed accidentally, and therefore is. Acetone, or propanone, is an organic compound with the formula (CH 3) 2 CO. It is the simplest and smallest is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid with a characteristic odor.

Acetone is miscible with water and serves as an important solvent in its own right, in industry, home, and laboratory.

About million tonnes were produced worldwide inmainly for use as a Beilstein Reference:. Acetone is present in tobacco smoke and landfill sites and is emitted as a result of using lawnmowers. Natural sources. Acetone occurs naturally in plants, trees, volcanic gases, forest fires and as a product of the breakdown of body fat.

Transport sources. Acetone is present in the vehicle exhaust of cars, aeroplanes and from railway operations.• Minnesota Department of Health Risk Assessment: Acetone • International Chemical Safety Cards: Acetone • National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH): Acetone • Acetone exhibits only slight toxicity in normal use, and there is no strong evidence of chronic health effects if basic precautions are followed.The risk to feel the effects on health as a result of the absorption of acetone through the intact skin is very low.

Several cases have been reported of people -- usually of young children -- who have experienced a malaise as a result of a dermal exposure to acetone during the poses of a plaster slight on a broken member.
