Appropriate Snakebite Management

North American Pit Vipers (crotalids) are capable of venomous bites. These occurrences are usually both seasonal and rare, however if they occur, they need careful and immediate attention. SnakeBite911 FR for First Responders is a guide to help you act quickly, and with confidence when attending to a snakebite emergency. It will support you through the actions required to ensure the victim is appropriately managed, from pick up to delivery at an Emergency Department.

Selected Safety Information about CroFab®
In clinical trials, recurrent coagulopathy (the return of a coagulation abnormality after it has been successfully treated with antivenin), characterized by decreased fibrinogen, decreased platelets, and elevated prothrombin time, occurred in approximately half of the patients studied. Recurrent coagulopathy may persist for 1 to 2 weeks or more. Patients who experience coagulopathy due to snakebite should be monitored for recurrent coagulopathy for up to 1 week or longer.
