 Nice  video.Are  such  kits  available  in  India?  would  like  to  buy  them
   I   know  a  snake  bite  case,where  a  person  sucked  the  blood  of  the  victim,through  the  wound.  The  'sucker'  Very Happy  himself  had  2-3  oral  injuries,and  he  also  had  to  undergo  anti-venom  doses.

 I  work  for  a  Company  that  employs  a  lot  of  people  daily  in  rubber  and  tea  plantations  and  we  have  to  deal  with  snake  bites  of  various  types  on  a  regular  basis.  The  victims  are  rushed  to  the  hospitals  together  with  the  snake(  captured  /  killed)  that  was  resposible  for  the  bite.  Most  of  the  people  spend  a  couple  of  days  in  the  hospital  and  return  without  much  of  a  serious  problem.
 
 I  am  sure  these  kits  if  available  in  India  will  help  in  providing  quality  first  aid  to  the  snake  bite  victims  rather  than  resorting  to  biting  and  cutting  with  a  blade  to  bleed  the  victim.  I  would  like  to  buy  a  few  kits  if  somebody  can  tell  me  where  i  can  get  the  same  in  India.

 Hello,
 
 @chinkz,  Don't  know  about  snake  handlers  but  sure  would  be  good  for  campers.   Smile  
 
 @alpha91  and  ramsarma1972,  I'm  not  sure  if  such  kits  are  available  in  India.  There  could  be  a  possible  Chinese  make  (wouldn't  be  surprised,  lol).  You  guys  can  check  out  the  following  link  where  they  have  the  same  product  for  sale.  It's  called  the  Sawyer  Extractor  Snake  Bite  Kit.  
 
 
 
 http://www.rei.com/product/407144
 
 If  I  do  get  any  updates  on  kits  made  in  India  will  post  on  here.   Thumb Up  
 
 Cheers!
 Rohan.

 They  forgot  to  mention  the  fact  that  these  extractors  can  play  hell  with  cytotoxic  or  haemotoxic  bites.  
 And  with  2  out  of  the  big  four  dangerous  snakes  in  this  country  being  viper's,  we'd  need  to  keep  that  in  mind.
 
 Best  thing  to  do  -  take  enough  precautions  to  make  sure  you  don't  get  bitten,  and  even  if  you  do,  make  sure  you  know  where  the  closest  hospital  is.

 A  couple  of  people  I  know  have  the  Sawyer  extractor  and  even  antivenin.
 
 However,  their  advice  and  I  believe  it  is  sound  is  to  skip  all  this  DIY  doctoring  unless  you  are  in  a  remote  place  with  no  access  to  medical  facilities.  Rush  straight  to  the  nearest  "government"  hospital  -  they  are  more  likely  to  know  how  to  deal  with  snakebite  and  have  the  equipment/antivenin  available.  Private  hospitals/your  friendly  local  physician  is  not  likely  to  be  of  help  and  will  most  likely  direct  you  to  a  government  hospital.
 
 If  you  like  playing  with  snakes  -  find  out  beforehand  which  hospital  in  your  locality  stocks  anti-venin.  Rather  than  trying  to  capture  the  snake  that  bit  you  -  just  make  sure  you  get  a  good  look  at  it.  Many  people  get  bitten  trying  to  kill  snakes.
 
 Snakebites  in  most  urban/village  areas  are  likely  to  happen  from  a  couple  of  common  snakes  -just  browse  the  internet  to  see  what  they  look  like.  Apart  from  the  cobra  which  resembles  a  non-venomous  rat  snake,  the  others  are  quite  distinctive  looking.
 
 If  you  like  snakes,  enjoy  them...from  a   distance...   Thumb Up  
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 well  snake  reminds  me  of  some  chewy  food  way  back  when  i  did  my  commando  training.
 I  used  to  catch  snakes  bare  hand  and  cook  them.  Never  thought  of  snake  bite.
 we  were  told  that  when  ever  you  get  a  snake  bite  put  ice  ASAP  and  we  were  made  to  identify  a  herb(dont  recollect  the  name)which  we  used  to  chew  and  put  on  the  bite  and  rush  to  the  nearest  hospital
 regards

 Well...this  is  what  I  call  "using  the  topic  literally"
 
 From  "Venemous  Snake  Bite"  we  have  moved  all  the  way  to  "Venemous  Snake"  Bite...   Chuckle  
 
 Captain,  if  you  tried  eating  the  snake  raw,  you  could  have  tried  both...  "Snake  Bite"  and  "Snake"  bite   ROFL  
 
 Just  kidding...  recently  I  saw  a  program  where  they  showcased  a  guy  in  the  western  Ghats  who  is  able  to  cure  a  snake  bite  by  his  kind  of  praying  where  the  person  who  is  bitten  or  his  relative  calls  him  up  and  informs  him  of  the  bite  and  he  can  visit  this  guy  in  a  couple  of  days  for  further  treatment.  Lot  of  people  claim  it  works  and  the  best  part  of  all  is,  he  does  not  accept  money  at  any  cost  for  this  treatment  (Is  already  a  wealthy  man)
 
 All  can  keep  his  number  handy,  in  case  you  dont  mind  believing  such  things  or  check  which  is  your  closet  hospital  (and  a  list  if  you  are  on  a  fishy  trip)  
 
 Captain,  do  share  your  recepi  for  the  benefit  of  our  other  members  (I  am  a  vegeterian  you  see   Smile   )
