Nursing In The Wild: Snakebites

Check out what happened

About this event

You are out on your favorite hike and you hear a blood curdling scream. You whip around only to find your hiking buddy holding her leg with what looks like a snake bite. What do you do next? 😱

Emergencies happen outdoors all the time but nurses are not always equipped with the education to confidently navigate them. Join us and the Wilderness Medical Society as two of the world’s leading snakebite experts break down common snakebite myths and what nurses need to know to care for them.

Jordan Benjamin, NRP, FAWM and Dr. Ben Abo, DO ENT-P FAWM of the Asclepius Snakebite Foundation will cover what to do in an emergency situation, and how to adequately assess, diagnose and treat patients who have been bitten by venomous snakes.

All nurses are invited to this event! Please RSVP and bring your questions! Ssssseeeee you there! 🐍
