Pediatric Emergency Conference Series: Envenomations for the Medical Professional

Miami, FL US
September 13, 2016

In the USA there are about 10,000 snake bites a year, not to mention other bites and stings not even recorded.  South Florida is home to many venomous and poisonous animals and many are exotics.  It is the responsibility of medical professionals to be able to provide patients with proper treatment in case of an envenomation. Yet, for the most of us, figuring out whether or not a snake is venomous is beyond our ability.  This course will focus on the common venomous animals, common exotics, the antivenom and patient care.
