||Report on a questionnaire survey of 62 cases of first-aid administered after eye-splashing accidents and 11 cases of first aid after chemical splashes affecting the skin. The results are presented in tabular form. Preliminary conclusions: if water is administered immediately after a chemical splash accident, there are no harmful consequences; the essential aspect of first aid is immediate administration; the product Diphotérine R is equally effective against acids and bases; it is important to understand how Diphotérine R works: mixing it with water seems to have no beneficial effect. In annex: sample questionnaire.
