How are snake bites treated?
*Call for emergency assistance immediately if someone has been bitten by a snake. Responding quickly in this type of emergency is crucial. While waiting for emergency assistance:
*Wash the bite with soap and water.
*Immobilize the bitten area and keep it lower than the heart.
*Cover the area with a clean, cool compress or a moist dressing to minimize swelling and discomfort.
*Monitor vital signs.
*If a victim is unable to reach medical care within 30 minutes, the American Red Cross recommends:
*Apply a bandage, wrapped two to four inches above the bite, to help slow the venom. This should not cut off the flow of blood from a vein or artery - the band should be loose enough to slip a finger under it.
*A suction device can be placed over the bite to help draw venom out of the wound without making cuts. These devices are often included in commercial snake bite kits.
*Most often, physicians use antivenin -- an antidote to snake venom -- to treat serious snake bites. Antivenin is derived from antibodies created in a horse's blood serum when the animal is injected with snake venom. Because antivenin is obtained from horses, snake bite victims sensitive to horse products must be carefully managed.
