The Snake Bite Bandage with Indicators is a heavyweight, premium quality bandage with flexible graphic indicators to help any user apply it effectively.
The graphic indicators show the correct level of compression under the pressure immobilisation technique - the most effective treatment for snake bite.
The bandage is extra long and wide to easily cover an adult leg, with unique stitching technology to maintain correct and even pressure.
The Snake Bite Bandage with Indicators is recommended for all Australian snake and funnel-web spider bites, blue-ringed octopus and cone shell stings.
School nurses and first aiders should carry the Snake Bite Bandage with Indicators on all outdoor camps, excursions and field trips.
The Snake Bite Bandage with Indicators also comes in the Snake Bite Premium First Aid Kit.
Snake Bite Bandage with Indicators Directions
Immediately call Triple Zero (000) for an ambulance.
Use the bandage to secure a non-adhesive dressing over the bite, wrapping it firmly (not tightly) in a spiral to the end of the limb.
The compression is correct when the rectangle graphic indicators stretch out to become squares.
Immobilise the limb, preferably with a splint, and keep it level with the rest of the body.
Keep the patient calm and still. Do not transport them until the ambulance arrives.
