The rate of detoxification of nerve agents by the body is very low and exposures are essentially cumulative. Latency Period: Vapor: Effects from vapor exposure begin to appear 30 seconds to 2 minutes after exposure. Liquid/Solid: There is almost always a latent period with no visible effects between the time of exposure and the onset of symptoms. Effects from liquid exposure begin to appear from several minutes up to 18 hours after exposure. Onset of symptoms from exposure to large amounts of liquid agent may appear as rapidly as 1 minute after exposure.

Removal of porous material, including painted surfaces, that may have absorbed Nerve Agent liquid may be required as these materials could continue to re-release liquid and/or vapor after exposure has ceased. Casualties/personnel: Remove contaminated clothing immediately. Remove as much of the agent from the skin as fast as possible without spreading the material. Wash the entire potentially exposed area with a bleach solution avoiding contact with sensitive areas such as the eyes. The bleach solution should be no less than one part household bleach in nine parts water.

First Aid Signs & Symptoms: Vapor: Miosis (pinpointing of pupils) and rhinorrhea (runny nose) may be the first indications of exposure to nerve agent vapor. Miosis is indicative of vapor exposure unless liquid agent has been in contact with the eyes. Difficulty breathing (shortness of breath or tightness of the chest) may also be present.
