I'll still sell them - because the 'customer is always right' (especially when he's paying to be wrong) - but for my friends and people who listen to me.... snake bite kits don't work. At best, they are a psychological comfort, at worst, they do more damage than the bite itself would have. MOST defensive strikes are not venomous. Snakes in the wild generally reserve their venom for dinner - prey animals. This may not be the case with snakes in captivity (note, I didn't say "domesticated" snakes), like those held for various snake rituals and otherwise ignored. A well cared for 'pet' snake would probably not inject venom into their conscientious owner/handler. Snakes only strike out of fear/defense or to obtain food. Given a chance, they'd rather avoid conflict with a non-prey animal. " a study in pigs and one using radioactively labeled simulated venom injected into the thighs of eight human volunteers found the Sawyer Extractor ineffective. "It removes just a minute quantity of venom," says pig-study author Sean P. Bush, a professor of emergency medicine at California's Loma Linda University School of Medicine. Some doctors fear the deep suction could even worsen outcomes by killing skin at the wound site. The human study, published in 2004 by researchers at the University of California in Fresno, found that the device removed no more than 1% to 2% of mock venom from the leg." There is a file in our file section that I read back when I was in the Army. It was a military study on snakebites and recommended pre-hospital emergency treatment. [Note: One U.S. Military physician stressed that the majority of snakebites in the U.S. involve young adult males who are bitten while ‚Äúplaying‚ÄĚ with the snake. Alcohol is frequently involved. His experience in ‚Äútreating more than 50 snakebite victims over the years has been that most victims (approximately 40 of 50) were intoxicated and messing with the snake.‚ÄĚ His number one rule in preventing snakebites in young active duty males is: ‚ÄúDon‚Äôt Mess With The Snake!‚ÄĚ] The basic elements of first responder aid are: -- Move the victim and rescuers to a place of safety, keep the casualty as inactive as possible to limit the systemic spread on venom, and rapidly transport them to definitive medical care. -- The injured part (usually a limb) should be immobilized in a functional position below the level of the heart and a pressure wrap placed proximal to the bite ‚Äď if it can be placed within 30 minutes of the bite. The wrap should be just tight enough to impede lymphatic flow, thereby delaying the systemic absorption and circulation of the venom - but not so tight to restrict venous or arterial circulation. If placed, pressure wraps should be left in place until arrival at the treating facility, probably until after the administration of antivenin. [Note: Some providers strongly advocate the use of pressure-immobilization techniques only for snakebites caused by elapid or neurotoxic-predominant species. However, other providers advocate pressure-immobilization for all venomous snakebites. Current research projects addressing this issue are expected to be completed soon.] [Note: Use of the Extractor Pump has been deleted from US SPECOPS protocols after recent studies showed it is not effective and may, in some cases, cause severe necrosis at the suction site.] -- Potentially constricting items, such as watches, rings, and tight clothing should be removed prior to the onset of edema. -- Do not give food, drink or aspirin-containing medicines; analgesia (e.g., morphine) may be required -- During transport from the point of injury to Level I Care (e.g., a Battalion Aid Station) the casualty must be given supportive care and reassurance that CASEVAC to definitive care is forthcoming. - En route care to definitive treatment in a Level III or higher medical facility capable of administering large amounts of antitoxin and treating its complications and the venom- induced multiple-organ failure.
