It is asphyxiating agent and has an anaesthetic effect at low concentrations. Inhalation can induce sleepiness, vertigo and dizziness, loss of coordination and unconsciousness. In atmospheres with a low concentration of oxygen, it can cause convulsions, respiratory collapse, and lead to death. In the case of repeated exposure, skin contact of liquid acetylene can cause irritation and dermatitis.
