Triplett said bite victims should not apply ice or a tourniquet, or elevate the bite wound. They should seek medical attention immediately at the onset of symptoms such as redness, swelling or pain in the bite area. They should not cut the bite and attempt to suck out the venom.

Bears repeating. A tourniquet for a snake bite is a great way to lose a limb.

That had a perplexing number of gratuitous references to medical marijuana licenses for a snakebite-at-a-Walmart story.

Well that make me glad that the Walmart in my town only has birds in the food aisles.

Maybe they were trying to subliminally suggest that if you don't want to be bitten by a snake, you shouldn't grow pot.

I would have thought the tourniquet or ice would be ok, but elevating the bite? That just gravity feeds deadly delay venom back towards your heart. Guessing no tourniquet or ice means that if you let the venom flow it can keep damage from being concentrated?

Or, you know, if you have arthritus which can affect your eyesite, you're in the lawn and garden section of a store where you don't expect to see snakes, and the long stick like object isn't moving.

Exactly that. Rattlesnake venom is hemotoxic which means it destroys tissue. By using a tourniquet you allow the venom to remain in one place longer causing more damage to that area. As far as cutting the bite marks, that does work but new guidelines state otherwise because there have been more problems from infections from the cuts than from venom and people were cutting themselves even when bit by non venomous snakes. Sucking the venom into your mouth when you had abrasions, sores or really bad teeth were causing the venom to affect the mouth as well.

National stats are that only 1% of snake bites are by venomous snakes, and less than 1% of those venomous bites are fatal. This guy was never really in danger since nearly all of the fatal bites are in the deep woods far away from help. He probably caused most of the damage to his hand by improper action, esp the tourniquet. Still, most of us would do the same thing. .

Pot is the leading cause of rattlesnake bites. My best friend died when a rattlesnake leaped out of his bong and bit him in the tongue. I thought I could trust someone to care for my dog when I was away, but the dog ate the guy's stash and fell into his swimming pool which was actually a snake pit. Another friend almost died when a joint turned into a baby albino rattlesnake. He caught it in time, or he would have died for sure. Baby rattlesnake bites are the worst because they can't control their venom.

No we're smart enough not to confuse them for sticks here.

True story, the first time I saw one in a store was a K-Mart. I turned down an isle and I noticed it just sitting there with it's head raised about 6 inches off the floor and at first I thought it was fake. My first thought was, I'm going to turn around and see a group of teenagers behind me laughing. I turned around but there was no one there. I looked back and that's when I noticed it move. I just went and got an employee. Apparently it happens quite often because they had one of those long snake catcher arms to pick it up with.

Supposedly Wal-Mart sells some badass mulch and gardening supplies for growing medicinal marijuana. I'm not sure what the mulch will do for illegal marijuana, but it supposedly does wonders for medicinal marijuana.

Having a license to cultivate is known to activate the mulch's special properties.

I call BS. Snakes don't leap, they fly. Usually it is so low that you can't tell.

Paris1127: Bears repeating. A tourniquet for a snake bite is a great way to lose a limb.


Out of interest why is that the case, I thought most snake venoms were neurotoxins to one degree or another? I can understand not manually sucking the venom out as the other person is likely to swallow it or absorb it through the mouth but not the no tourniquet thing.

Keep in mind I live in a country where our most venomous snake is not only quite rare but has the same effect as a bee sting... a small bee at that. So it's not something I really have to consider.

I live in the town where this happened. They probably made the right choice driving the dude to the hospital since it is only about 5 minutes from the Wal-Mart. An ambulance would have taken half an hour to get there because they are notoriously slow around here. Also I've heard that this dude is the kind who has "accidents" a lot on other people's property, at least people who can afford to pay him for them.
