Crotalid Envenomations Dr. Beuhler
Important steps in management of bite care:
Don't just treat lab abnormalities
a. Crofab = 10cc/hr; 4 vials & reevaluate after 1-2 hrs.
Remember crofab interrupts coagulopathy & helps lower compartment pressures & possibly helps with pain - it will NOT stop or reverse local tissue destruction
If you DC home have follow up in < 24 hrs for wound reevaluation
