History of Hydrogen
Effects of Hydrogen on people
Exposure to high levels of hydrogen sulfide gas is a well-documented and understood hazard. OSHA and NIOSH standards have long recognized this acute risk with appropriate short-term maximum exposure levels for workers. However, long-term, chronic exposure to low levels of hydrogen sulfide is not as well understood.
0-10 ppm Irritation of eyes, nose, and throat.
2 ppm Bronchial constriction in asthmatic individuals, spontaneous abortion
5-9.3 ppm Increased blood lactate concentration, decreased skeletal muscle citrate synthase activity
10-50 ppm Headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, coughing, difficulty breathing
150-250 ppm Olfactory paralysis
50-200 ppm Severe respiratory tract irritation, eye irritation/acute conjunctivitis, shock, convulsions, coma and death in severe cases
