Shared Path Safety - Snake Season
Advice from St John Ambulance is:
- DO NOT wash, cut or suck the wound.
- DO NOT use a tourniquet
- DO apply a broad pressure bandage starting just above the fingers or toes and move up the limbs as far as possible. Apply the bandage tightly but without cutting the blood supply.
- DO note the time of the bite and when the bandage was applied
