MEDICAL SCIENCE UPSETS
AN OLD TRADITION
The old idea that whiskey is a *
specific foi snake bite is rudely sha- 1
ken in an article published in the (
California State Health Bulletin. 1
"It would seem therefore that every
camper and hiker should know
what to do in ease he should be bit- ;
ten by one of these deadly snakes.
Every camper should carry with him >
a very sharo knife, razor or safety
blade, a small bottle of permanganate
of potash crystals and a few: 1
heavy rubber bands. These articles I
constitute the best standard snake | 1
b'te equipment. Whiskey, particular-1
ly in large quantities, is of no use i <
a'- a remedy and may be very harmful,
popular opinion to the contrary' *
When a person is bitten by a poiv>nous
snake he should first of alii'
place one or more of the heavy bands
very tightly around the injured mom-!
her and above the wound, in no ease!
however should the band be left cn!
longer than twenty or thirty minutes
Alter the band is in place, two
incisions at least an inch ions should
be made at right uncle-, directly across
the bit*. These incisions should
be deeper than the penetration of;
the snake fangs. The wound should
then be washed thoroughly in a solution
of permanganate of potash, using
a sufficient amount oi the crystals
iu water to make a dark, winecolored
solution. If no water is available
the crystal- may be rubbed |
directly into the wound but it is better
to use a solution. This chemical
destroys all snake venom with which
a comes in contact Removal of the
rubber band should not be forgotten.
After the application of this
treatment the victim should be taken j
to a physician in order that necessary
stimulants may be administered
and proper antiseptic dressings ap
j jtlied to the wounds."
