    Interestingly, this bandage is particularly suitable to Australia. World wide there are a number of treatments for snake bites and not all snakes and spiders have venom that is suitable for a compression bandage. If you get it wrong a compression bandage will be detrimental.

    Luckily in Australia ALL Snakes require a compression bandage and ALL Spiders EXCLUDING the Funnel Web and Mouse Spiders all require a compression bandage.


    For the benefit of the members.

    The treatment for any snake bite in Australia and most spider bites is to identify the bite location before applying the compression bandage.

    The snake venom of all Australian snakes does not attack the blood so a tourniquet to the upper limb is a waste of time. The venom travels through the lymphatic fluid so total compression on the limb is essential.

    Once the bite site is located take note of its location. DO NOT clean the bite and leave any venom, blood or fluid present on the skin and apply the compression bandage to the entire limb. If available apply a second bandage over the top to the length of the limb. Using a texta or pen clearly Mark on the bandage exactly where the bite site is so that it can be located by medical staff without removing the bandage.

    Immobilize the patient and send for help.

    When the patient arrives at hospital the medical staff will leave the compression bandage in place and pull aside or cut the bandage only around the bite site and test any fluid to determine the type of venom. It is imperative to treat with the antivenom prior to removing the compression bandage and limit the effect of the lymphatic flow.

    This is the same.for spider bites.

    Stay safe folks.
    I nearly bought the kit but the only thing i'm missing is the SAM splint so thinking I might just buy that separately. I already have their expedition first aid with a couple of the SMART snake bandages

    Stay safe folks.
    Other way around for the Pida's, Cobber... Funnel Web and Mouse Spiders DO require a PIB sama sama as Snake bites.
    All other spiders are Ice Pack and monitor IE do not apply a PIB.

    Thanks ET. You are right as usual. Ice pack for most bites except Funnel and Mouse Spiders which sh would be treated as per a Snake bite.
