Schistocyte quantitation, thrombotic microangiopathy and acute kidney injury in Austral...
https://doi.org/10.1111/ijlh.13497
International Journal of Laboratory Hematology; Noutsos T, Currie BJ et. al.

Feb 22nd, 2021 - The major systemic manifestation of hemotoxicity in human snakebite envenoming is venom-induced consumption coagulopathy (VICC). A subset of patients with VICC develop thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA), in which acute kidney injury (AKI) occurs. We...

https://doi.org/10.1080/15563650.2021.1881535
Clinical Toxicology (Philadelphia, Pa.); Ho CH, Ismail AK et. al.

Feb 19th, 2021 - The incidence of acute compartment syndrome (ACS) following snakebite envenomation may be seriously overestimated in Taiwan. Snakebite-induced ACS is difficult to determine solely by clinical examination. Snakebite patients previously underwent su...

PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases; Senji Laxme RR, Attarde S et. al.

Feb 18th, 2021 - Snake venom composition is dictated by various ecological and environmental factors, and can exhibit dramatic variation across geographically disparate populations of the same species. This molecular diversity can undermine the efficacy of snakebi...

https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pntd.0008580
PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases; Sabitha P, Bammigatti C et. al.

Feb 18th, 2021 - Local envenomation following snakebites is accompanied by thermal changes, which could be visualized using infrared imaging. We explored whether infrared thermal imaging could be used to differentiate venomous snakebites from non-venomous and dry ...

https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pntd.0009023
PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases; Alcoba G, Ochoa C et. al.

Feb 12th, 2021 - Worldwide, it is estimated that snakes bite 4.5-5.4 million people annually, 2.7 million of which are envenomed, and 81,000-138,000 die. The World Health Organization reported these estimates and recognized the scarcity of large-scale, community-b...

Pressure immobilization after North American Crotalinae snake envenomation
http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.3109/15563650.2011.610802
AMERICAN COLLEGE OF MEDICAL TOXICOLOGY

Nov 7th, 2011 - Given that the primary toxic effect of envenomation is local tissue injury, mortality is not an ideal outcome measure to extrapolate to human crotaline envenomation. Available evidence fails to establish the efficacy of pressure immobilization in.

Unified treatment algorithm for the management of crotaline snakebite in the United Sta...

BMC Emergency Medicine; Lavonas EJ, Ruha AM et. al.

Feb 4th, 2011 - Envenomation by crotaline snakes (rattlesnake, cottonmouth, copperhead) is a complex, potentially lethal condition affecting thousands of people in the United States each year. Treatment of crotaline envenomation is not standardized, and significa...
