  • First Aid for Snake Bite

    Image of rattle snakeSnakes exist in almost every part of the world. Of the approximately 8000 reported snake bites each year, however, fewer than 12 result in fatality. This is due in part to the fact that about two thirds of all poisonous snake bites involve little or no venom; these are called “dry bites.” Baby snakes are more dangerous in this regard as they have not yet learned to save their venom for prey. If venom is injected, symptoms will begin rapidly and include pain, swelling, weakness, dizziness, fever, or chills.  First Aid for snakebite includes:

    • Immediately remove all constricting clothing and jewelry from the extremity.
    • Wash the bite area with soap and warm water.
    • Keep wound site at or below heart level, and seek immediate medical attention.
    • Sometimes a constricting band may be used on snakebite, but it must not significantly affect circulation and it should be loose enough for you to slip your fingers underneath.

    Do not apply ice to snakebites, as it may crystallize the venom and compound the reaction.

    Do not attempt to “cut and suck” the venom, even using a snakebite kit. In order to be effective, the suction must be applied almost immediately, and the danger of severing an artery can outweigh the danger from the venom.

    Always be protected from snakes in the outdoors. Great for taking on short hikes, camping, or anytime you are in the wilderness. Always be protected from snakes in the outdoors. Great for taking on short hikes, camping, or anytime you are in the wilderness.

  • Jellyfish Sting Treatment Information

    Jellyfish stings can cause red, painful, burning symptoms, which may spread to the hands and face of the casualty if contacted. To help inactivate the venom:

    • Rinse the area with vinegar as soon as possible. If vinegar is not available, a baking soda paste can be used.

    For the treatment of pain and to alleviate further penetration, the area of contact should be immersed in HOT water (up to 113 degree Fahrenheit) for at least 20 minutes or until pain subsides.

  • General Care of Bites and Stings

    Image of mosquito biting fleshGeneral care of bites and stings:

    • Immediately wash the bite or sting with soap and water if available, or use antiseptic wipes if soap and water are not available.
    • Put an ice pack on the affected area with a cloth barrier between the ice and skin. If treating a bee sting, remove the stinger first (see below).
    • Never attempt to suck out any venom or poison with your mouth!
    • Never apply a tourniquet.
    • Do not use folk remedies or unproven treatments to care for the casualty.
    • Do not give the casualty caffeinated drinks, alcohol, or aspirin.
