Yes, You Can Treat Your Snake Bite Patients Within Minutes

Essentials
Meeting Date (All Meetings start at 7:30 PM): 
04/09/2020
Sponsor: 
Venom Vet
Speaker: 
Dr. Gena Broussard

Historically, snake bite envenomation patients in the veterinary field have faced delayed treatment with the use of an historically available lyophilized antivenom product. This traditional treatment, as well as a newer frozen plasma product, utilize a whole IgG antibody formulation, which significantly increases the risk of anaphylactic reactions. The newer technology of purified liquid polyvalent F(ab')2 antivenom, incorporated in the product Venom Vet, greatly increases the speed of treatment, which can significantly improve patient prognosis, while minimizing the risks of anaphylactic reactions and adverse side effects.
