snake bite cures?

Postby takoda » Wed Aug 03, 2011 10:07 pm

electric shock will netralize venom.
just shock the bite with 2 seconds at a time.
you have nothing to lose!
a tazer may work too.
thank you

Erm...what? :smt012
I've also heard you can get rid of a wart by blowing it off towards the full moon.
Just imagine how annoyed a snakebite victim will be if you tazer him after he got bitten. You just made his bad day much, much worse. :-D
And yes you do have something to lose: your front teeth!

Why would someone post that as a first post? Even if it isn't meant as a joke? We all know electricution is not as effective as a razorblade to the wound or sucking the venom out lol.

Yes and then plunge your bitten limb in boiling oil for no less than 20 minutes. This cooks the venom and it breaks down.

Or you could always cut the envenomated limb off, and quaterise it with the saw and clothes iron you carry in your backpack "just for such emergencies".

A lot of people use to think it will work but this has been proven wrong. If you're not even sure it's a dangerous snake you're just gonna end up hurting someone.Treating a snakebite victim can cause more harm than good so read a bit more before ypu start handing out help.

In the medical cabinet on the farm, my sister has a pack, I forget the name of it, but it's basically a box with three vials, a syringe, instruction manual and a skok matjien (that's what we call it.). It's intended for the horses as a snakebite kit. I'll find a link to the product when I get the name of it.

Google doesn't hand out medical degrees but you can learn something if you know how to look.
