Envenoming by the common krait (Bungarus caeruleus) and Asian cobra (Naja naja): Clinical manifestations and their management in a rural setting


, : Envenoming by the common krait (Bungarus caeruleus) and Asian cobra (Naja naja): Clinical manifestations and their management in a rural setting. Wilderness and Environmental Medicine 15(4): 257-266

Objective.-Villagers are commonly poisoned by kraits and cobras in India, and resulting deaths are common. An inadequate understanding of appropriate snakebite treatment often delays proper treatment of those who are bitten. A lack of simple airway management equipment such as resuscitation bags and laryngoscopes compounds the difficulty in treating many patients and increases mortality in neurotoxic (elapid) venom poisoning.
