Understand the Risk for North American Pit Viper Envenomation and Know How to Act Quickly

Since the consequences of pit viper envenomation may be severe, it’s important to understand the impact of venom on the patient and follow an established treatment protocol.

According to the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida, approximately 8000 venomous snakebites occur each year in the United States.2

The number of envenomations reported to poison control centers has increased in recent years, and research suggests that many states across the United States will be at even higher risk for snakebites in the future.3,4

Strike Back Envenomation Education will help you prepare for every stage of a snakebite envenomation.


Did you know?

98% of venomous snakebites in the United States are from the North American pit viper, including copperheads, cottonmouths, and rattlesnakes.1 Make sure you're prepared with treatment that covers this entire range.
