So what are the best snake bite antivenom kits on Amazon and Walmart? If you go hiking it is always a very good idea to have a preventive first aid kit on you. It is very frightening to know that we can meet snakes if we go for an excursion somewhere. AS for me I am afraid of snakes very much. Fortunately I haven’t met any snakes so far, but to tell you the truth I don’t want to. Snakes bites don’t always mean that there is envenomation, and these bites are so-called “dry bites”. But unfortunately there are lots of cases when snake do inject a certain amount of venom when biting. According to the World Health Organization there are about 5 million snake bites annually, and half of them are envenomings. There are approximately 100,000 deaths happen and around 300,000 amputations needed to be done. Most of them occur in Africa (about 1 million) and most deaths happen in India (around 11,000) Now Insider Monkey recently published an article in which we can find lots of interesting facts about his topic.
Symptoms that can be experienced after being bitten depend on the snake’s venom toxins, the amount of venom, and venom strength. There are several types of snake venoms such as myotoxic venom (affecting tissue failures), hemotoxic venom (affecting blood by preventing clotting), neurotoxic venom (affecting the nervous system) and cytotoxic venom (affecting any cells). Some of the symptoms can be itching, harsh pain, dizziness and fainting, sweating, numbness, difficulty in breathing, and vomiting.
