AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION 23 May 00 New snake bite kit ready for summer
Mount Isa: A medical researcher is hoping to trial a snake-bite test kit this summer to improve the treatment of 300 to 350 Queenslanders bitten each year.
Research biochemist at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Doctor Paul Masci, says as well as saving lives, the kit will save the State millions of dollars.
Doctor Masci says the cheap kit will quickly identify a snake by its venom, and also how much venom has been injected, saving a fortune in treatment.
"They're all going to hospital, that's one thing you must take on board, you know even if it's a dry bite, what we call dry bite where no venom is delivered the patient's always kept overnight and it does cause an incredible amount of anxiety among the medical staff in accident and emergency when a snake bite comes in," he said.
