Improving Snakebite Care

August 8, 2019
As the Medical Director of the Poison Control Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), I am often asked to provide injury prevention advocacy on snakebite care to our service area. Globally, snakebites and snake envenomation (the process by which venom is injected by the snake) are major causes of injury and death, even to children. Antivenom is a precious commodity that may save limb or life, but more health services research is needed to help define the best practices with respect to utilization of this resource. We also need to empower and engage communities and strengthen health systems to ensure safe and effective treatment.
