Evaluation of Snake Bite Cases Admitted To Hospital in Tertiary Care
Keywords:Snake bite, Rural, Snake, Venomous, ASV.
A significant problem faced in rural India is snake bite. India’s high mortality rate is due to climatic conditions,
population predominance in rural areas, and agricultural dependency. In order to research the epidemiology
and outcome of snake bite cases, this retrospective study was done at B.K.L Walawalkar Rural Medical
College and Hospital, Sawarde. During the study period, 58 snake bite cases were reported.30 of the bites
were poisonous. Male preponderance has been noted.Maximum number of cases were seen during rainy
season and more during day time.The lower limbs were most frequently involved.42 cases were recovered
out of 58 cases and 16 patients left the hospital againstthe medical advice.As a specific treatment, polyvalent
Anti Snake Venom (ASV) vials were used. The improvement in mortality may be the consequence of timely
hospitalization and specific care and subsequent first aid steps.
