How to survive snake attack

We have all heard the horror stories about people who have been bitten by venomous snakes. Two of the most common venomous snakes in North America are the rattlesnake and coral snake. Some people have been known to die from a snake bite while others end up having their bitten limbs amputated. However, there are also people who have been able to survive a snake attack without dying or losing their limbs. The best way to survive a snake attack flawlessly is to get to the emergency room as soon as possible. Always bring your smartphone with you when you are away from your home, especially if you are taking walks in the park or in the woods. That way you can immediately call 9-1-1 from your smartphone and get help to you right away. If you don’t have your smartphone then quickly find someone nearby who has a phone and ask them to call 9-1-1 for you. It will also help if you can kill the snake that bit you and bring it with you to the hospital. Either that or figure out what type of snake it was that bit you. The more information you can provide to your doctors about the snake, the better chance they will have of creating an anti-venom solution that will save your life.

In extreme situations where you don’t have a smartphone and no one else is around to help, you are going to have to temporarily treat the bite on your own. If you have water available then pour water onto the wound to help reduce the chances of getting an infection. Then you’ll want to take off your shirt or wrap a piece of clothing around the limb that was bit. If you have a bandage then that would be better, but chances are you won’t have one. Anyways, you will need to wrap the clothing about three inches above the spot you were bitten. The idea is to reduce the blood circulation in that area, so the venom won’t circulate further throughout your body. Now comes the tricky part. You need to seek help from the nearest location, but be careful that you don’t exert yourself too much because you want to limit your blood flow as much as possible. Perhaps you could try screaming for help if you think anyone is close enough to hear you. The important thing to remember is stay calm and keep your movements slow and restricted until you can find help.

Don't keep it to yourself, share it with others!
