Introduction. Dermal exposure to hydrofluoric acid (HF) may cause severe burns and systemic toxicity. Hexafluorine® (Prevor, France) is a product marketed as an emergency decontamination fluid for HF skin and eye exposures. Documentation concerning Hexafluorine is scanty, and a recent study indicates that its ability to reduce HF burns is at most equal to that of water. Objective. The present study was conducted to evaluate Hexafluorine's capacity to reduce HF‐induced systemic toxicity. Methods… Expand
