Snake Bites

Snake envenomation causes pain and swelling at the bite site and up the affected limb. Patients who have the most complications are the ones who come to the hospital several days after being bitten. The swelling in the limb begins to cut off the blood supply to the tissues and can lead to death of the tissues.  Surgery in these patients is difficult until the blood begins clotting again.
