We’ve all seen those old movies where someone sucks the venom out of a snake bite, or they try to cut it out with a knife. The sad part is that the person doing the sucking can suffer the same fate as the bitten victim, as the venom gets in their mouth. Cutting it with a knife can be brutal and damaging to the flesh around the wound. So what can you do when you, or a friend, gets bitten by a venomous insect or creature?
The Sawyer Extractor Bite & Sting Kit is a must-have for anyone who lives in areas where there are snakes, mosquitoes, or bees, or for those adventurers who hike or trek through wooded trails. The suction pump sucks out the venom in one quick swoop, minimizing pain and swelling. Not only for snake bites, it extracts the venom left behind by insects and is able to be used with just one hand. The syringe-like device draws the venom into its chamber, for easy disposal. After cleaning, the device is reusable, and is available with different sized suction cups for small or bigger bites or stings.
The kit contains alcohol pre pads, razor (to shave hair away from the wound), adhesive bandages, wipes, and the pump. For $15.99 it is a life saver for bites and stings. For extremities, it works more easily than in muscled areas. In the case of bites or stings to muscles, such as the chest muscles or calf muscles, it is best not to waste any time and get to the hospital, using the device on the way to buy yourself time.
