The pressure immobilisation technique (PIT) was introduced for the treatment of Australian snake bites1 and is suitable for other elapid snake bites. It is also recommended for envenomation by a number of other animals. The PIT retards the flow of lymph by which venoms gain access to the circulation. It has also been shown that there may be inactivation of certain venoms and venom components when the injected venom remains trapped in the tissues by the pressure
The AeroForm Snake Bite Bandage is also available in a shorter version for upper limbs and pediatric use.

Indicators show when the correct level of compression is achieved
The unique stitching technology ensures the correct pressure is evenly applied over the entire limb.
Easy to open and straight-forward to apply. We use these in the State Ambulance service I work for and we pack these inside the Wilderness First Aid Kits my business produces with confidence.
This bandage takes all the guesswork out of applying the correct pressure to the limb.
Its a no brainer, these bandages will save lives. I have a few now. One in both our cars, campervan and my hiking gear. Hoping I will never have to use them for a snake bite, but prepared , just incase. I have used before for a sprained ankle.
So they are multifunctional.
Great bandage. Students love the indicators during first aid training
