Prophylactic abx for snakebites? // How to slow spread of venom prehospital // How to follow progression vs. resolution of symptoms // Dosing of CroFAB” We in Central Florida have access to telephone # which connects us 24/7 to a “snake bite” toxicogist and staff based in Jacksonville, FL. These wonderful people have led me by the hand to 3 successful ER snake bite outcomes during the past month alone. These consisted of a probably bonafide coral snake envenomation, a medium severe pygmy rattler envenomation in an 81 yo pt, and a wildly toxic Eastern Diamondback envenomation complete with anaphylactic shock in a middle aged man with significant comorbidities who required over 31 vials of crofab during his 3 week ICU stay! The telephone# we use to access this service is 1-800-222-1222. I just called the number and was told this was this is feed-in to all regional Poison Centers. Good luck, and I hope you experience the same excellent service we enjoy in our “neighborhood.”. Thanks, Wayne S.
