About this book

The scientific coverage begins with a discussion of the general biology of venomous snakes: the structure and ultrastructure of the venom apparatus, locomotion, food, habitats, and geographic distribution. The book's clinical approach to its subject provides a guide for all those who must choose a quick and effective course of treatment for persons poisoned by one of the most complex and highly evolved toxins known - snake venom. Drawing on more than a quarter of a century of experience, Dr Russell thoroughly covers all phases of his subject from the care of the victim in the field through possible complications of the poisoning and therapeutic protocols.
