C.v.oreganus & toxicity

I work in the field, and am in constant close quarters with northern pacific rattlesnakes. I am very careful, and always use caution, none the less a bite is always possible. I have heard that some people, when bitten, refuse antivenin and simply "sweat it out". Would there be a benifit in allowing your body to beat the toxin, rather that get antivenin.
Also, what is the level of toxicity in relation to other crotalids? Any stories of C.v.oreganus bites? Thanks
