Bites by snakes. Bite by a venomous snake is characterized by stinging pain at the wound puncture. The venom injected at the site of the bite is capable of producing a deleterious effect on the blood or on the nervous system. (Webster's 3d ed; from Dorland, 27th ed, at snake, venomous)
Antisera used to counteract poisoning by animal VENOMS, especially SNAKE VENOMS.
Limbless REPTILES of the suborder Serpentes.
Solutions or mixtures of toxic and nontoxic substances elaborated by snake (Ophidia) salivary glands for the purpose of killing prey or disabling predators and delivered by grooved or hollow fangs. They usually contain enzymes, toxins, and other factors.
A family of extremely venomous snakes, comprising coral snakes, cobras, mambas, kraits, and sea snakes. They are widely distributed, being found in the southern United States, South America, Africa, southern Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The elapids include three subfamilies: Elapinae, Hydrophiinae, and Lauticaudinae. Like the viperids, they have venom fangs in the front part of the upper jaw. The mambas of Africa are the most dangerous of all snakes by virtue of their size, speed, and highly toxic venom. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p329-33)
A genus of poisonous snakes of the subfamily Elapinae of the family ELAPIDAE. They comprise the kraits. Twelve species are recognized and all inhabit southeast Asia. They are considered extremely dangerous. (Moore: Poisonous Snakes of the World, 1980, p120)
A family of snakes comprising three subfamilies: Azemiopinae (the mountain viper, the sole member of this subfamily), Viperinae (true vipers), and Crotalinae (pit vipers). They are widespread throughout the world, being found in the United States, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Their venoms act on the blood (hemotoxic) as compared to the venom of elapids which act on the nervous system (neurotoxic). (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, pp333-36)
A genus of poisonous snakes of the VIPERIDAE family. About 50 species are known and all are found in tropical America and southern South America. Bothrops atrox is the fer-de-lance and B. jararaca is the jararaca. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p336)
A genus of snakes of the family VIPERIDAE. It is distributed in West Pakistan, most of India, Burma, Ceylon, Thailand, southeast China, Taiwan, and a few islands of Indonesia. It hisses loudly when disturbed and strikes with great force and speed. Very prolific, it gives birth to 20-60 young. This viper is the leading cause of snakebite in India and Burma. (Moore: Poisonous Snakes of the World, 1980, p127)
Venoms from snakes of the subfamily Crotalinae or pit vipers, found mostly in the Americas. They include the rattlesnake, cottonmouth, fer-de-lance, bushmaster, and American copperhead. Their venoms contain nontoxic proteins, cardio-, hemo-, cyto-, and neurotoxins, and many enzymes, especially phospholipases A. Many of the toxins have been characterized.
Venoms from SNAKES of the viperid family. They tend to be less toxic than elapid or hydrophid venoms and act mainly on the vascular system, interfering with coagulation and capillary membrane integrity and are highly cytotoxic. They contain large amounts of several enzymes, other factors, and some toxins.
Bites inflicted by humans.
Bites and stings inflicted by insects.
The largest family of snakes, comprising five subfamilies: Colubrinae, Natricinae, Homalopsinae, Lycodontinae, and Xenodontinae. They show a great diversity of eating habits, some eating almost anything, others having a specialized diet. They can be oviparous, ovoviviparous, or viviparous. The majority of North American snakes are colubrines. Among the colubrids are king snakes, water moccasins, water snakes, and garter snakes. Some genera are poisonous. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, pp321-29)
The force applied by the masticatory muscles in dental occlusion.
A phenothiazine derivative with histamine H1-blocking, antimuscarinic, and sedative properties. It is used as an antiallergic, in pruritus, for motion sickness and sedation, and also in animals.
The effects, both local and systemic, caused by the bites of SPIDERS.
A condition in which certain opposing teeth fail to establish occlusal contact when the jaws are closed.
Emergency care or treatment given to a person who suddenly becomes ill or injured before full medical services become available.
Paralysis of one or more of the ocular muscles due to disorders of the eye muscles, neuromuscular junction, supporting soft tissue, tendons, or innervation to the muscles.
The study of plant lore and agricultural customs of a people. In the fields of ETHNOMEDICINE and ETHNOPHARMACOLOGY, the emphasis is on traditional medicine and the existence and medicinal uses of PLANTS and PLANT EXTRACTS and their constituents, both historically and in modern times.
A family of snakes comprising the boas, anacondas, and pythons. They occupy a variety of habitats through the tropics and subtropics and are arboreal, aquatic or fossorial (burrowing). Some are oviparous, others ovoviviparous. Contrary to popular opinion, they do not crush the bones of their victims: their coils exert enough pressure to stop a prey's breathing, thus suffocating it. There are five subfamilies: Boinae, Bolyerinae, Erycinae, Pythoninae, and Tropidophiinae. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p315-320)
Neurologic disorders caused by exposure to toxic substances through ingestion, injection, cutaneous application, or other method. This includes conditions caused by biologic, chemical, and pharmaceutical agents.

Low dose subcutaneous adrenaline to prevent acute adverse reactions to antivenom serum in people bitten by snakes: randomised, placebo controlled trial. (1/243)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy and safety of low dose adrenaline injected subcutaneously to prevent acute adverse reactions to polyspecific antivenom serum in patients admitted to hospital after snake bite. DESIGN: Prospective, double blind, randomised, placebo controlled trial. SETTING: District general hospital in Sri Lanka. SUBJECTS: 105 patients with signs of envenomation after snake bite, randomised to receive either adrenaline (cases) or placebo (controls) immediately before infusion of antivenom serum. INTERVENTIONS: Adrenaline 0.25 ml (1:1000). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Development of acute adverse reactions to serum and side effects attributable to adrenaline. RESULTS: 56 patients (cases) received adrenaline and 49 (controls) received placebo as pretreatment. Six (11%) adrenaline patients and 21 (43%) control patients developed acute adverse reactions to antivenom serum (P=0.0002). Significant reductions in acute adverse reactions to serum were also seen in the adrenaline patients for each category of mild, moderate, and severe reactions. There were no significant adverse effects attributable to adrenaline. CONCLUSIONS: Use of 0.25 ml of 1:1000 adrenaline given subcutaneously immediately before administration of antivenom serum to patients with envenomation after snake bite reduces the incidence of acute adverse reactions to serum.  (+info)

Myasthenic syndrome of snake envenomation: a clinical and neurophysiological study. (2/243)

In this prospective study, 65 consecutive patients with neurological manifestations after snake envenomation, were examined in order to describe the natural history of the reversible nature of muscle weakness. Snake envenoming led to a completely reversible muscle paralysis involving the external ocular muscles with sparing of the pupils, muscles of mastication, facial muscles, palatal muscles, neck and proximal limb muscles. The deep tendon reflexes were preserved with no sensory abnormalities. The muscular weakness usually set in within an hour of envenomation and lasted up to 10 days, with fatigability lasting for 12 days. Respiratory muscle paralysis led to ventilatory failure needing ventilation in severely envenomed patients. Motor and sensory nerve conduction were normal with normal resting compound motor action potentials on electromyography. Repetitive nerve stimulation gave rise to a decremental response during high frequency stimulation. The edrophonium test gave negative results. These manifestations are due to abnormalities of neuromuscular transmission and are not typical of myasthenia gravis. As the exact pathophysiology of venom-related neurotoxicity is not known, it is suggested that the neurological manifestations of snake envenoming be designated a myasthenic syndrome. Further studies to isolate the neurotoxin and its mechanism and exact site of blocking at the neuromuscular junction would pave the way for the development of a novel long-acting neuromuscular blocking agent.  (+info)

Sequential randomised and double blind trial of promethazine prophylaxis against early anaphylactic reactions to antivenom for bothrops snake bites. (3/243)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy of the H1 antihistamine promethazine against early anaphylactic reactions to antivenom. DESIGN: Sequential randomised, double blind, placebo controlled trial. SETTING: Public hospital in a venom research institute, Sao Paulo, Brazil. PARTICIPANTS: 101 patients requiring antivenom treatment after being bitten by bothrops snakes. INTERVENTION: Intramuscular injection of promethazine (25 mg for adults and 0.5/kg for children) or placebo given 15-20 min before starting intravenous infusion of antivenom. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence and severity of anaphylactic reactions occurring within 24 hours after antivenom. RESULTS: Reactions occurred in 12 of 49 patients treated with promethazine (24%) and in 13 of 52 given placebo (25%); most were mild or moderate. Continuous sequential analysis indicated that the study could be interrupted at the 22nd untied pair, without preference for promethazine or placebo. CONCLUSION: Prophylaxis with promethazine does not prevent early reactions. Patients should be observed carefully during antivenom infusion and the subsequent few hours.  (+info)

A new monospecific ovine Fab fragment antivenom for treatment of envenoming by the Sri Lankan Russell's viper (Daboia Russelii Russelii): a preliminary dose-finding and pharmacokinetic study. (4/243)

Russell's viper is the most important cause of life-threatening snake bite and acute renal failure in Sri Lanka. Only equine polyspecific antivenoms imported from India are available. They have not proved effective clinically or in clearing venom antigenemia and they frequently cause reactions. In an attempt to reduce mortality and morbidity, a new monospecific ovine Fab fragment antivenom (PolongaTab; Therapeutic Antibodies, Inc., London, United Kingdom) was raised against Sri Lankan Russell's viper venom. In a preliminary dose-finding study in 35 patients, an initial dose of 3-4 g restored blood coagulability permanently and stopped systemic bleeding, even in severely envenomed patients. Venom antigenemia disappeared within 1 hr of antivenom treatment but recurred, probably as a result of continued absorption of venom from the site of the bite, after the rapid clearance of therapeutic antibody. Twelve patients (34%) experienced early reactions that were usually mild and always responded to epinephrine.  (+info)

Epidemiological and clinical differences of snake bites among children and adults in south western Saudi Arabia. (5/243)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the clinical course and complications of snake bite in children and adults. METHODS: A retrospective review of 66 patients (28 children and 38 adults) admitted after snake bites for management at the Prince Abdullah Hospital in Bisha, in the south western part of Saudi Arabia, during the period May 1992 to May 1995. RESULTS: No significant difference was found in time of bite, site of bite, and sex preference between adults and children. Local complications, such as tissue necrosis, were commoner in children (14%) than in adults (5%). Systemic manifestations were also more commonly seen in children than in adults; this is possibly due to a higher ratio of injected venom to body mass in children. Leukocytosis was seen in 54% of children (adults 13%), a low haemoglobin concentration in 14% of children (adults 11%), prolonged prothrombin and partial thromboplastin times in 41% of children (adults 16%), while a high creatine phosphokinase was seen in 31% of children compared with 17% of adults. CONCLUSIONS: Children seem to have more serious local and systemic complications than adults and this may indicate the need to use a higher dose of antivenom than that being used at present.  (+info)

Histologic and functional renal alterations caused by Bothrops moojeni snake venom in rats. (6/243)

Acute renal failure (ARF) is the main cause of death following snake bites by Bothrops species. In this study, we investigated the morphologic and functional renal disturbances caused by Bothrops moojeni venom in rats. Renal function was assessed based on creatinine and lithium clearances and on histologic examination of renal tissue 5 hr after the intravenous administration of 0.2 mg of venom/kg and 5 hr, 16 hr, and 48 hr after 0.4 mg of venom/ kg. A venom dose of 0.4 mg/kg produced renal tubule disturbances, including acute impairment of proximal and post-proximal tubule sodium handling associated with acute tubule necrosis. The glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decreased significantly and was accompanied by severe morphologic disturbances in the renal glomeruli. These functional and morphologic findings were observed in the absence of any change in mean arterial blood pressure. The decrease in GFR was not related to the presence of fibrin deposits in the glomerular capillary loops. These results suggest an early nephrotoxic action of B. moojeni venom involving significant morphologic and functional changes similar to those observed in snakebite-induced ARF in humans.  (+info)

Short report: treatment of snake envenomations by a new polyvalent antivenom composed of highly purified F(ab)2: results of a clinical trial in northern Cameroon. (7/243)

A clinical trial was conducted in 2 health centers in northern Cameroon to assess the safety and efficacy of a new polyvalent antivenom composed of highly purified and pasteurized F(ab')2 (FAV-Africa). Forty-six patients with objective signs of envenomation, including 67% with hemorrhage, were included in the study. Each patient received at least 20 ml of FAV-Africa by direct, slow intravenous injection; 172 10-ml ampules were administered. All patients were clinically cured after treatment. Two patients (4.3%) showed minor immediate adverse events that may have been related to FAV-Africa (induration, light-headedness); no other treatment-related adverse event occurred. No patient had serum sickness. This trial confirms the safety of FAV-Africa administered by intravenous injection and its efficacy in the treatment of snake envenomations in sub-Saharan Africa.  (+info)

Primary data were collected on the incidence, severity and species responsible for snake bites in 4 areas of Kenya: (i) Kakamega and western Kenya, (ii) Lake Baringo and Laikipia, (iii) Kilifi and Malindi, and (iv) northern Kenya. The overall average frequency of snake bite was 13.8 per 100,000 population per year (range 1.9-67.9). The minimum rate of snake bite mortality was 0.45/100,000/year. Thirty-four of the 50 units visited reported no knowledge of death from snake bite in the last 5 years. Possible reasons for the low estimates are discussed. Traditional treatments were common, especially the use of herbal remedies and incisions at the wound site.
There are more than 25 different venomous snakes in Australia. The mere thought of encountering one makes me do a tiny vomit in my mouth. Almost. I should definitely consider moving to a nice, snake-free country like New Zealand. Throughout Australia, most (most than 75%) snake bites are from brown snakes, but here in Victoria tiger snakes account for around half.. Snake bites are common in our pets, because these creatures are often outside sharing the same space, and our four-legged friends usually cant resist hunting or playing with things that move. Snake bites are usually seen during the warmer part of the year from September through to April, with most cases occurring over summer. The severity of symptoms and how quickly they occur depends on how many times a pet is bitten and where on their body they are bitten.. Unfortunately bites often occur on the face or in the mouth, because this is the body part that pets are usually poking at the snake. Right at this moment we have an adorable ...
Several behavioral differences between cats and dogs are also highly likely to increase the chances of dogs dying from venomous snake bite.. Dogs typically investigate with their nose and mouth, which are highly vascularized areas, whereas cats often swat with their paws, Dr Fry said.. And dogs are usually more active than cats, which is not great after a bite has taken place because the best practice is to remain as still as possible to slow the spread of venom through the body.. The researchers hope their insights can lead to a better awareness of the critically short period of time to get treatment for dogs envenomed by snakes.. As dog lovers ourselves, this study strikes close to home but it also has global implications, Dr Fry said.. Ive had two friends lose big dogs to snakebites, dying in less than ten minutes even though the eastern brown snakes responsible were not particularly large specimens.. This underscores how devastatingly fast and fatal snake venom can be to ...
Boris, a sweet 11 month old male British Shorthaired cat presented to the clinic after his owners had noticed he had been lethargic for a few days. Boris would walk for a short distance and then lie down. Upon presentation with Dr Thulz, it was noted that Boris was walking slightly stilted in the consultation and was constantly licking his lips.. As Boris lives in a snake area and is an outdoors cat, the possibility of Boris having snake bite toxicity was high as he presented with these symptoms.. To learn more about snake bites and your pet, click here: Boris was placed in hospital on frequent intravenous fluids to help flush his system of any toxicity or venom. We performed a urine test and an urgent blood test. With these results we were able to confirm that Boris had been bitten by a snake by testing his muscle enzyme (CK) count. The count was high which indicated that muscle damage had occurred - a symptom of snake bite venom.. Boris ...

Snakebite is a neglected tropical disease considered a disease of the poor and prevalent among rural farmers. Although focus on snakebites among urban dwellers is generally minimal, the high rates of housing construction that characterize peri-urban zones of developing countries may predispose housing workers to snake-human encounters and bites, therefore creating differences in epidemiological factors underlying snakebites in urban and rural areas. Using demographic characteristic of snakebite victims, we assessed the occupational risk to snakebites in the capital city of Ghana. Farming was not as common among the urban dwellers as building works but the prevalence of snakebites was in the order: farmers (39%) , builders (22%) , Office Workers (5%) , Businessmen (5%) , and unemployed (4%) indicating the few farmers in the city had the highest risk of sustaining snakebites. The frequent work schedule of builders in uncompleted and housing under construction increased their snakebite risk as ...
Last month Charlottes Carolina Poison Center received a total of 71 snake bite calls - thats up from just 19 calls in September of 2016.. The majority of the calls were for copperhead bites, made by medical professionals seeking specific anti-venom dosing and treatment advice. The Charlotte regions most prevalent venomous snake is the copperhead, but North Carolina is also home to cottonmouths, rattlesnakes (eastern diamondback, pygmy and timber) and coral snakes.. ...
As snakes hibernate during the colder months the vast majority of snake bites take place in the Spring/Summer months. Snakes are commonly found in areas with long grass, rocks and other hiding holes, often near a fresh water source such as a creek or dam.. It is important to remember that most snakes will try to avoid you and your pets. However, whilst we humans may simply walk away from a snake, our pets are inquisitive, armed with natural hunting instincts and when given the chance, will harass snakes often resulting in snake bites.. ...

Confronting an irked rattlesnake or other venomous snake is definitely a situation any person, dog or cat wishes to avoid. But a new study indicates that cats are twice as likely to survive a venomous snake bite than dogs. In terms of size, most dogs are larger than most cats. However, a research team at the University of Queensland pinned down the reason cats survive venom from snakes on a condition called venom-induced consumptive coagulopathy. Thats a lengthy string of words to describe the condition when an animal loses his ability to clot blood and as a consequence, bleeds to death.. The Queensland team, led by associate professor Bryan Fry studied findings of venomous bites caused by the eastern brown snake in Australia. While only 31 percent of dogs survive being bitten by an eastern brown snake without antivenom, cats are twice as likely to survive - at 66 percent, Dr. Fry reported to Science Daily.. ...

Diagnosis, antivenom treatment, and follow-up care for venemous North American snake bites depends on the type of snake involved and the severity of the bite.
Our objective was to determine the prevalence of poisonous snakebite victims admitted to a regional trauma center in Southeastern Georgia over a 10-year period, as well as the type of snake, grade of envenomation, treatment administered, morbidity and mortality, and outcome. Records of patients admitted to the center for snakebite from a 24-county catchment area during the 10-year period (January 1984 to January 1994) were retroactively reviewed. Sixty-three (63) bites in 62 victims of venomous snakebites were treated. The snake distribution was rattlesnake: 19 (30%), copperhead: 18 (29%), cottonmouth moccasin: 8 (12%), unknown: 18 (29%). Envenomation grades were Grade I: 20 (32%), Grade II: 24 (38%), Grade III: 10 (16%), and Grade IV: 9 (14%). Fourteen of 19 (74%) Grades III and IV envenomations were from rattlesnakes. Antivenin was used in all Grade IV and half of the Grade III envenomations. Antivenin was administered within 3 hours of injury in all but one case. Five patients had surgery. Two
This snake venom is then injected in small amounts into mammals such as horses, sheep, or rabbits. These animals have an immune response whereby antibodies against the venom are generated naturally. The Antivenom is then harvested from the blood of the animal, purified and stored to treat future envenomation for snake bite victims. Antivenins are normally administered to the victim as soon as possible following a snake bite attack - usually with 4-5 hours. Since the advent of Antivenom, many snake bites which were almost always fatal have become only fatal rarely if it can administered to the victim in a timely manner. Even though the antivenins are purified by multiple processes, it may contain other serum proteins and some individuals may have an extreme hypersensitive reaction to the injection and is only administered exercising caution. ...
Anchal (Kollam): A police investigation is underway into the death of a woman who was bitten by a snake in her bedroom. Investigators are hoping to come to an accurate conclusion soon. Uthra (25), a resident of Eram Vellasheeril, was found dead by a snake in her room.. The cyber cell found that Suraj, hailing from Adoor Parakkodu, had been in constant contact with some snake takers. Snake takers and some of Soorajs aides are under surveillance.. Sooraj claims that a snake which entered through the open window had bitten Utra. More scientific testing is needed to determine whether this is true. The key is to find out how much the snake can rise from the floor. In this regard, we are seeking the knowledge of zoologists and snakes.. Those who work in this field say they are awakened by a poisonous snake bite. But Uthra did not wake up. Police are hoping to know the cause of the post-mortem. Delay in getting the report is affecting the investigation.. On March 2, Uthra was bitten by a snake at ...

Rory presented to Warrnambool Veterinary after his owners found him unwell and surrounded by 2 dead snakes! It had been a very hot night and Rory had obviously played games with the Tiger and Copperhead or Brown snakes.. On presentation Rory was in a bad way, he had vomited at home, was shaking a lot and barely able to stand. He was dribbling brown urine, panting and had large dilated pupils. Rorys temperature was very high and he was almost unconscious. In this case the diagnosis was straight forward due to the snakes being found at Rorys kennel.. The initial treatment for Rory consisted of placing an intravenous catheter and starting intravenous fluids at shock therapy rates. While this was done a blood sample was taken for analysis in our in-clinic pathology machine to check the status of Rorys kidney and liver function, as well as a blood clotting time, which we use to both diagnose snake bite and to help determine the need for more anti-venom.. ...

Snakebite often results in puncture wounds caused by the animals fangs and sometimes, envenomation. Most snakes are non-venomous and kill their prey with constriction, however, venomous snakes often bite their prey as a method of hunting and sometimes as a defence mechanism when they are attacked or disturbed.. First Aid in the case of snake bite. According the the World Health Organization (WHO), the recommended procedure for snake bite first aid is the R.I.G.H.T. method.. Reassure the victim. Keep the victim calm. If the victim panics, their heart rate and blood pressure will increase and make the venom spread faster. It may also lead to anaphylactic shock which could kill the victim faster than the venom. Assure the victim that almost 70% of all snakebites are from non-venomous snakes and of the remaining 30%, only half will actually have injected venom, the rest being Dry Bites. Assure them that they are going to be OK.. Immobilize the affected limb. Do not use compression.. If a bite is ...
