First Aid Tips For Snake Bites

1. Reassure the person bitten by the snake

2. Wash the area bitten with water to remove residual venom 

3. Avoid excitement and exertion which accelerate circulation time and rapidly propel venom throughout the body

4. Splint limb and minimise movement 

5. Urgently seek medical attention 

NB: Use of tourniquet (to tie limb proximal t

o bitten area) is not recommended by people without medical expertise as it may lead to gangrene leading to limb amputation...
