2 Exposure Organophosphorus nerve agents are liquids at room temperature [4]. This chemical property is often confusing, as these compounds are often referred to as ‘nerve gases’ or ‘poison gases’ [2, 3, 8]. A source of this misperception is associated with the likely exposure route in a warfare setting, inhalation due to aerosol exposure [9]. Inhalation is the most toxic form of exposure. Symptoms, including death, can appear within minutes following inhalation [10]. Alternative exposure routes, typically from liquid contact, include dermal, ocular and ingestion; however, these mechanisms are not as acute as aerosol inhalation, with the exception of an immediate ocular response to nerve agent vapor [4, 10].

In humans, severe burns can occur in the eye and on the skin with strong irritations to the olfactory system, similar to that of ammonia. Triethyl phosphate is also considered to be acutely toxic, with only moderate irritating properties. Chronic exposures to dimethylamine and triethyl phosphate have also been tabulated by Munro et al. 3 [5]. Dimethylamine does not appear to be mutagenic or carcinogenic; however, triethyl phosphate has been well characterized [20]. Triethyl phosphate does seem to cause mutagenesis and affect the reproductive system [21].
