AeroForm Premium  Short Snake Bite Bandages with Indicators

The AeroForm Premium Short Snake Bite Bandage with Indicators is a Premium Heavyweight Conforming Bandage perfect for use with the Pressure Immobilisation Technique, which is used for the treatment of Snakes, spiders Blue Ringed Octopus and Cone Shell stings.

This bandage is of sufficient length to bandage a large adult leg 

The pressure immobilisation technique (PIT) was introduced for the treatment of Australian snake bites and is suitable for other elapid snake bites. It is also recommended for envenomation by a number of other animals. The PIT retards the flow of lymph by which venoms gain access to the circulation. It has also been shown that there may be inactivation of certain venoms and venom components when the injected venom remains trapped in the tissues by the pressure
bandage.

The Pressure Immobilisation Technique (PIT) is recommended for application to bites and stings by the following creatures

  • All Australian venomous snakes, including sea snakes [Class A; LOE III]
  • Funnel Web spider [Class A; LOE IV]
  • Blue-ringed octopus [Class B; LOE Expert Consensus Opinion]
  • Cone shell [Class B; LOE Expert Consensus Opinion]

The Pressure Immobilisation Technique is NOT recommended for the first aid management of:

  • other spider bites including redback
  • jellyfish stings
  • fish stings including stonefish bites
  • stings by scorpions, centipedes or beetles
