The AeroForm Premium Long Snake Bite Bandage with Indicators is a heavyweight conforming bandage perfect for use with the Pressure Immobilisation Technique, that is used for the treatment of all Australian snake and funnel webbed spider bites, blue ringed octopus, and cone shell stings.
This bandage is of sufficient length to bandage a large adult leg.
The pressure immobilisation technique (PIT) was introduced for the treatment of Australian snake bites1 and is suitable for other elapid snake bites. It is also recommended for envenomation by several other animals. The PIT slows down the flow of lymph by which venoms gain access to the circulation. It has also been shown that there may be inactivation of certain venoms and venom components when the injected venom remains trapped in the tissues by the pressure bandage.
Features of AeroForm snake bite bandage:
- Wider and longer than most crepe or elastic bandages.
- Longer than most Snake Bite Bandages on the Market, ensuring that the bandage is suitable for entire adult leg immobilisation.
- Continuous indicators ensure you have the correct pressure over the entire limb.
- Suitable for the treatment of all Australian Snake and Funnel Webbed Spider bites, Blue Ringed Octopus and Cone Shell stings.
