Snakebite First Aid Management Training

Respected All,

Snakebite affects the lives of thousands of people every year; seriously injuring men, women and children of all ages, and claiming  lives.

Remarkably snakebite is not a disease without a treatment, but sadly many hundreds of thousands of victims go untreated every year. Snake antivenoms, which were first developed in the 1890′s, offer the potential to save many, many lives, but high costs, poor availability, and in some cases, poor quality products produced by unscrupulous manufacturer’s have eroded confidence in antivenom immunotherapy, and many governments simply put the problem in the too-hard basket.

Snakebite present major challenges to companies working in rural and far remote areas. Snakes are remarkable animals, successful on land (on-shore) and sea (off-shore), forest, grassland, lakes, and desert. Companies are going in search of business and natural resources to quite and far remote areas (believe me they don’t follow snakes around their facilities) but the snakes do like their company so they can find something fresh and new to eat. We are scared of them and they too are scared of us but our quest of natural resources/reserves and their to food help us to find each other most often.

There are 4 types of poisonous snakes in Pakistan.

1) Common Cobra (Naja Naja)

2) Common Krait (Bungarus caeruleus)

3) Russell’s Viper (Lundi)

4) Saw Scaled Viper

Their venom is a combination of numerous substances with varying effects. In simple terms, these can be divided into 4 categories:

1) Cytotoxins: This causes local tissue damage.

2) Hematoxins: This causes internal bleeding.

3) Neurotoxins: This affects the nervous system.

4) Cardiotoxins: This type of venom affects directly on the heart and choking it to death within minutes.

Bites by venomous snakes result in a wide range of effects, from simple puncture wounds to life threatening illness and death.
