What are the first aid precautions to be taken in case of a snake bite?
I took a wilderness first aid course earlier this year in preparation for a trip; one additional thing they mentioned there was to write down the time of the bite, then use a pen or sharpie to occasionally mark how far the swelling has spread and the time the mark was made. Apparently they can figure out the amount of venom injected and the needed dose of antivenom based on the rate of swelling.
