at least the warnings for test kits...


Maybe Danielle will contribute some site resources so we have a place to send ER docs when treating patients that have been envenomated and show up on the steps at an ER 1000 miles from the ocean... :eek: Even though most ER's HAVE the electronic access to these resources, it's always good to have a group of these types of resources in one place so we can send people who need to know to the resource site in an emergency.

You rang?

Regarding most marine envenomations, empiric attempts to denature the toxin are generally recommended (Lionfish, stingrays, echinoderms, etc) by placing the affected limb into water at 114F.

A review of echinoderm envenomations: http://www.emedicine.com/emerg/topic158.htm

A review of general marine dangers:
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/512590_2

In a true emergency, it doesn't matter what you've been zapped with. If facing airway issues or circulatory collapse, management is my problem, not yours. Call 911 and we will look up whatever we need to. I have an endless supply of references, including subscription services and even an online network of physicians should you come up with something to stump me.

Where it would be helpful:
a) You have this strange bump on your finger that's been there for a long time, and you noticed after messing around in your tank. Same goes for weird rashes. These aren't emergencies, but there are certain bacteria in saltwater that we think about if we know you're a fisherman...

b) You keep some sort of exotic critter that could kill you. (Blue-ringed octopus, Box jellyfish, etc) - Put a card in your wallet or signs on your walls that the paramedics wouldn't miss. It may not matter anyway, as I'm not going to pause from my full court press to save you to look up some esoteric toxin. I'll empty my code cart first.

c) If you ever have any signs of serious allergic (re: anaphylactic) reaction to anything in your tank, you need to have an epi-pen available. Just in case. I mean, I break out in hives if I brush against hydroids. I avoid them. But I'm aware of it. It's like a bee sting allergy... but then again, it's like a bee sting allergy. If you show up at my door, we follow a common pathway to try to save your life.

Oh, and if you do get exposed to this mythical palytoxin that does not appear in the medical literature (I looked, and if anyone can find a reference to any case report of dermal or transdermal intoxication, I'd appreciate it), you are going to get the same treatment anyone else presenting with cardiovascular collapse gets. Oh, and if you do, and happen to survive, I want to hear about it.

The initial citation:
Moore, Richard, and Scheuer, Paul. Palytoxin: A New Marine Toxin from a Coelenterate. Science 30 April 1971: Vol. 172. no. 3982, pp. 495 - 498.

There are plenty of reports of people dying from palytoxin, however they are all secondary to ingesting fish that have ingested dinoflagellates that have ingested... and so on. None in the US that I could find. Interestingly, palytoxin is now being blamed for deaths previously declared related to ciguatura poisoning. In any case, I cannot find any that have anything to do with handling the originating species, which, according to Hawaiian legend, is found in only one tidepool. (Is it really? Who knows.) Moral of the story? You could still get hit by a bus and are more likely to die in a car crash anyway.

Gosh, I didn't mean for that to come off like a rant. I guess my bottom line is just to be smart and know what you're dealing with. Which is why a reef MSDS is a great idea!

Thank You Danielle, from an ER Docs perspective thats great, cause when someone comes in presenting symptom x Drs will treat it.
I have posted in the past that its a real good idea for reefers to keep a list of tank inhabitants, updated and current, handy to the tank.
If anyone ever comes home to find a family member who's been playing in the tank. on the floor cyanotic and doing the funky chicken a list that can be given to EMS personnel may be a life saver, it certainly won't hurt. It gives the staff a point to start from.
Most people go thru years in the hobby with no issues, but if you are that guy that reacts badly to some encounter, anything to stave off disaster can be a blessing.
Way back in the 70s when I got into Marine fish hobby, I had a lion fish, got stung, reacted badly, and EMS was called. Fortunatly one of the ambulance guys was into SW and saw the lion, put 2+2 together and I got the treatment I needed, really lucky break considering I live out in BFE , way past Podunk. Luckily the big hospital nearby was becoming a regional poison control and Trauma Center, but when things go bad stack the cards in your favor

storage containers.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering controls
Ventilation:
Use ventilation that is adequate to keep employee exposure to airborne concentrations below exposure limits (or to the
lowest feasible levels when limits have not been established). Although good general mechanical ventilation is usually
adequate for most industrial applications, local exhaust ventilation is preferred (see ACGIH - Industrial Ventilation). Local
exhaust may be required for confined areas (see OSHA CFR29 1910.146)
Other engineering controls: Keep container tightly closed. Observe label precautions. Have emergency shower and eye
wash available.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection: Full face shield with chemical goggles if liquid contact is likely, or safety glasses with side
shields.
Skin protection: Chemical-resistant gloves (i.e. butyl) and other gear as required to prevent skin contact.
Respiratory protection: A NIOSH/MSHA air purifying respirator with an organic vapor cartridge may be permissible,
however use a positive pressure air supplied respirator if there is any potential for uncontrolled release, or unknown
exposure levels.
