Suctioning IS still the recommended field treatment.

And it's unlikely that paramedics or other emergency personnel will carry antivenin, due to the cost (~$2000/vial wholesale), relatively short shelf life (24 months stored at 2-7 C/36-46 F), and the risk of severe anaphylaxis in reaction to the antivenin.

MTL's posts are great....and raised by blood pressure, just in remembrance.

But he left out the one that might annoy me most: "How much is this?"

---from someone wanting to buy a disc or shirt while I'm trying to check scorecards or otherwise clearly deep into TD duties.

Thanks! Just didn't see the need to circle if suctioning was no longer done, but it is, so...
Sharpies: good for more than inking your discs.

I knew paramedics don't carry antivenin, but hopefully, they can get you to to a hospital that does, or coordinate with Venom One to get it where it's needed.

That's a broad range of circumstances.......... Been lucky that there's no rattlers(or other venomous snakes) in NY. Came across a 6 foot rat snake during a casual round but it ran from us faster than we could snap a good pic of it.

My post was just to make sure you hook up the deaf DGers. Something as simple as a printed handout goes a LOOOOOOOOG way.
