Probably not. Physicians constantly fall under these lamps and nothing. In such a short time, an ordinary lamp for disinfecting a room will not bring any harm.
For the skin, most likely, there will be no harm, but you can burn the cornea of the eyes. This is called ultraviolet keratitis. Usually, 6 - 12 hours after the irradiation, the eyes turn red, start to ache, tears flow and you constantly want to close your eyes.
Hello! There will be no harm in such a time if you have not looked at the ultraviolet lamp for all these 2 minutes, of course.
But in the future it is better to leave the room, take care of yourself!
Most likely in this situation, there will be no harm to health . However, if a person directly looked at the source of ultraviolet radiation, burns of the cornea or retina are possible . Eye damage is manifested by redness, lacrimation, soreness, and other symptoms. To avoid such problems, you should always adhere to safety rules when using quartz lamps.
There are two types of lamps : open and closed. In the first case, the source of ultraviolet radiation is unprotected, the second option is safer for humans, animals and plants (provided the tube is intact).
Closed quartz lamps are considered a versatile, compact and mobile device that can effectively fight bacteria, fungi and viruses. They become very relevant, as do open models during the cold season and in the treatment of certain diseases (inflammatory diseases of the respiratory system, psoriasis, acne, eczema, arthritis, etc.).
If a person uses unprotected sources of ultraviolet radiation to disinfect your home (or at work), you should protect yourself and your household members as much as possible from the negative effects of this device. To do this, it is necessary to observe the following rules:
▸ follow the recommendations specified in the operating manual for the device;
▸ use the lamp only for its intended purpose;
▸ do not enter the room where the device is operating (if you have to do this, you cannot look at the lamp or you need to wear special goggles);
▸ it takes half an hour to quartz the selected perimeter;
▸ it is advisable to turn the device on and off from an adjacent room (you can stretch the extension cord into another room);
▸ do not enter the treated room for 30 minutes, then ventilate it well;
▸ do not use the device if there are signs of malfunction and visible damage;
▸ be sure to take breaks between quartzing individual rooms for at least 35-40 minutes so that the lamp has time to cool down.
It should be understood that that for the prevention and treatment of rickets, as well as many other diseases, it is very dangerous to use open lamps . Using them at home can cause skin and eye burns and ozone poisoning, which is generated in large quantities during operation.
