    I bought one the other day actually. You might have seen it on my news feed on Facebook doggy.

    I did a 1st aid courses yesterday and when the guy was talkm ing about compound bandages for snake bites I mentioned this one with the square. He smiled at me and pulled one out of his bag and said he'd been teaching 1st aid for st John for 30 years and I was the first person ever to ask about this type of bandage. Lol. He was a big fan. I'm waiting on the kit to arrive.

    on a serious note, have you seen a shark bite kit, which i guess would have a fair amount of absorbtion bandages and maybe a blood clotting pack? Thought this would be equally as important, but equally as specific as the snake bite kit.

    May as well pack a few units of blood and a cannula kit too??? ;-)
    However, you've just reminded me to source an Israeli Bandage (or similar) for my kit tho.

    I hear you, but not all bite victims die from the event especially if you can reduce the blood loss via compression. Whats an Israeli bandage?

    True. Compression is the key.
    Israeli Bandage started out as a military tourniquet - maybe available commercially/ domestically now - I found out about them on a CareFlight first responder course. Similar to/same as Combat Application Tourniquets (C-A-Ts). Designed for single handed use.

    Not really. The snake bite kit is marketed to bush users. Hunters, bush walkers, 4wder. The bandage specifically is for a compression bandage to help achieve optimal compression tension. It is said that it will also help a solo person apply the bandage easily.

    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 and the Funnel Web and Mouse Spiders require a compression bandage and ALL Other Spiders all require an ice pack and immobilization for relief and monitor. If the patient get a worse seek medical attention.


    For the benefit of the members.

    The treatment for any snake bite in Australia and Funnel Web and Mouse 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 Funnel Web and Mouse spider bites.

    Stay safe folks.

    There are a couple of shark bite kits specifically refined for this emergency. They are being rolled out at beaches around Australia as standard kit, so if you play around on the beaches it might be a worthwhile extension to your first aid kit. I have extended my kit with additional modules for burns, eye injuries and fractures, plus purchased a defibrillator unit as well. Now I have the snake kit and will consider the shark bite kit down the track when we start travelling more to coastal areas.
