Snakebite/ Spider bite indicator bandages have a visual application guide makes it easy for the general public to apply the bite bandage consistently and correctly.
The optimal pressure recommended by the Australian Venom Research Unit at the University of Melbourne is a firm 40mmhg for an arm and 55mgHg for a leg.
The indicator bandage gives a great marker of how firm an effective PIB should be, making it easier to feel and use the visual guide to apply the correct amount of pressure needed for effective application.
Unlike other bandages, you only need one. This is long enough to treat even the longest of limbs. Being able to completely bandage a limb is a must with snakebite as is effectively splinting the limb and laying the patient down to minimise any movement.
