50 to 70% Respiratory depression, stupor, imbalance acid base , and irregular heart rhythm.
60 to 70% loss of consciousness, coma, Cardiac arrest, and death
Over 70%. May be lethal if left untreated.
Short term symptoms(Acute exposure):
• Cardiovascular: Irregular heart rhythm, acute congestive heart failure and heart block this may be due to delivery of the oxygen to tissues is decreased .
• CNS(central nervous system): Confusion, weakness, dizziness, loss of consciousness, and disorientation
• Renal: urination is painful; appearance of blood or methemoglobin in urine, and decrease in the urinary output.
• Dermal: Mild irritation of skin.
• Ocular: Moderate to the severe irritation of eye, discoloration , and damage of cornea.
• Respiratory system: irritation of respiratory tract with difficulty in breathing and cough. Long term( chronic exposure):
• Hemolytic anemia due to destruction of RBCs. Formation of the Heinz bodies is induced by aniline. Persons with deficiency in the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase are more susceptible to the risk of hemolysis induced by aniline.
