From snake bites to sore teeth, this guide will help you tackle almost any accident.
Traditional measures (tourniquets, incision and suctioning) are fraught with danger. Here's what to do:
1) Get out of striking range. If you think you were bitten by a coral snake, apply a constricting band loosely, so that it barely indents the skin. (Use a shoelace.)
2) Use the sawyer extractor, if you have one.
3) Immobilize the bitten extremity, and keep it at heart level.
4) Let the extremity hang down in a dependent position and get the victim to a hospital. 5) Bring the snake so it can be identified.
