Snake Bite Sera

INFORMATION

Uses

Snake Bite Sera is used in the treatment of snake bites.

How it works

Antivenom acts to neutralize the poisonous venom of the cobra and causes the venom to be released from the receptor site. Thus, the receptor sites that were previously blocked by venom are now free to interact with the acetylcholine molecule, and normal respiration resumes. The spent antivenom and the neutralized venom are then excreted from the body.

Common side effects

Anaphylactic reaction, Shortness of breath, Decreased blood pressure, Joint pain, Serum sickness, Shock, Urticaria
