What NOT To Do For Snake Bite – New Information!
Well, new information for me and maybe you too.
It was long taught to cut the snake bite and try and suck the venom out. We now know this is Hollywood fantasy and can even kill you!
I had also always been taught to elevate the bite area above the heart, but apparently, as this infographic shows, this is not the case.
I had also always been taught to clean the wound. But again, apparently that is not the way to do it now.
It sounds like the bottom line is, lie them down, don’t let them move, call emergency services and transport to hospital yourself as a last resort.
And here’s an infographic on what to do and not do.
