Snake envenomation is associated with significant morbidity and even mortality and at least 5,000 venomous snakebites are reported in the United States each year. There has been a rise in significant gaps in knowledge, competence, and performance clinicians when it comes to patient assessment and treatment of venomous snakebites. Made possible by a grant from BTG International, the webinar focuses on the epidemiology and clinical course of snake envenomation; elements of clinical and laboratory assessment of patients with snake envenomation; and the efficacy and recommended treatment regimen available for snakebite antivenin therapies.
