First Aid Treatment For Snake Bites

If you happen to be bitten by a snake, it’s essential to get emergency treatment as quickly as possible.

Here are some tips that you should ALWAYS keep in mind:

Step 1:   Call 000 as soon as possible.

                Lay the bitten victim down and do not let them move unless there  
                could be danger around the victim.

                Ensure the patient is well hydrated to reduce the risk of acute renal 
                failure.

                It is important to provide reassurance to prevent panic and inhibit the 
                victim to be anxious.

Step 2:   Wrap a stretchable bandage or cloth on the entire leg starting at the   
                toes or if the hand is bitten starting at the arm. It is preferred to use a
                broad bandage (at least 7.5cm wide).

                If the bandage does not cover the entire leg or arm, start with a new
                bandage at the point the last bandage ended until the entire leg or arm
                is fully covered.  Make sure to leave the tips of the toes/fingers out to
                check on circulation. The bandage should be firm enough to reduce
                movement but not to compress blood flow. 

Step 3:   It would be helpful for emergency services personnel to mark with a
                pen or anything readily available to spot the bite site once the entire
                the limb has been covered.

Step 4:    For bites on the leg and the arm, make sure to splint or use a hard
                 linen material. Then strap the legs together with slings or a strip of
                 rigid material to prevent movement. Once the bandage is applied, try
                 not to remove it.

Continue to provide reassurance and make sure the victim is comfortable until the arrival of emergency services.

Additional preventions:

                Restrain from washing the bite site.

                Do not attempt to lacerate the bite site to venom out the limb.

                Never try to suck the venom out of the limb.

                Do not apply a tourniquet to the limb for it could compress
                the flow of blood.

                Prevent moving the victim unless in immediate danger.

                Do not kill or attempt to pick-up the snake. Take a picture if you can but don’t 
                waste time hunting it down.

It's a high-quality product designed and manufactured to give reliable service and to last the distance and will still be operating long after poorer quality products have stopped working. Variable frequencies are crucially important in preventing snakes from acclimatising and ignoring the vibrations The repellers emit a variable frequency vibration that mimics heavy-footed animals, and snakes are deaf they rely on their acute sensitivity to identify and interpret these vibrations. If sensing these as a potential danger, they will abandon the protected area. The repellers also produce a sound to alert you that they are operating. Where sound muting is required, simply bury the snake repeller stems deeper in the ground. The EBC Battery Powered Variable Frequency Snake repeller works where the solar repeller won't. Ideal in shaded areas, dirt floor sheds, animal pens, under buildings and more. They can be used in conjunction with solar snake repellers, deters snakes from claiming territory and making themselves at home at your place.  How many will you need? For perimeter defence placement, the recommended distance is 30 meters apart, however allowances need to be made where the area to be protected has soft ground, rocky, heavily wooded, large trees, concrete paths, and driveways etc. In these instances, it pays to keep them closer together as the vibrations may not travel as far.  There should be a line of sight between repellers preferably without obstructions between them and where there are obstructions as mentioned above, repellers should be placed either side.   Features: The repellers feature a unique to the battery powered model, an ultrasonic vibration frequency and an offset motor that produces a strong physical vibration. The repeller covers 30-meter diameter area. Water resistant aluminum stem. Takes 4 D-Cell batteries 6 to 8 months continuous operation on 1 set of batteries.  12-month return and replacement warranty. Snake Types: There two main categories of snakes in Australia, ground-dwelling snakes, mainly venomous, and arboreal dwelling snakes mostly non-venomous. The repellers work for all native ground-dwelling snakes by emitting a variable frequency to scare them away. They sometimes won't work with arboreal snakes, such as tree snakes and pythons that can be used to being in close proximity to humans and larger animals. It is also important to remember snakes are wild animals and therefore can be unpredictable. As well as avoiding confrontation, care should always be taken to wear appropriate clothing and being familiar with the latest snake safety information.   You can watch our videos and installation instructions here.
