If still breathing, administer oxygen, if not CPR, then oxygen.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] H2S Antidotes

Hi All,

I just had the question posed to me – does anyone know of an antidote to H2S exposure?.  This is oil refinery related where a sudden exposure to H2S could happen if something goes wrong with compressors and other pipelines and machinery.  If anyone has knowledge of an antidote, please let me know.  I believe that this might have relevance in other places also.
