comment What are the first aid precautions to be taken in case of a snake bite?
... After effects too, would depend on the same factors. And, additionally on, how much cell damage/nerve damage is done, is the limb still there or amputated, how much viols of anti-venom were needed. Usually, when one is treated for a severe snake-bite, the fellow inhibits poor reactions to antibiotics. If 6 pills were enough for the guy for treating an xyz thing, after a severe bite the guy would need more than that for the same kind of a treatment. Those effects last for long long time, sometimes through the life.

.. It all depends on, where the fellow is bitten, what first-aid is being done, the amount of venom snake has injected, amount of constriction being made between the heart and the bite, poor fellow's past medical history with heavier anti-venom and antibiotics..

comment What are the first aid precautions to be taken in case of a snake bite?
@njzk: Again both the questions have a common answer, "It Depends on a lot of factors". The time that one has left with is definitely in minutes. If the bite is a genuinely severe one and on legs or a hands (which is most common), the unlucky fellow has something around 40-45 minutes tops to save life.
