Snake Bite Bandage Indicators

The pressure immobilisation technique (PIT) was introduced for the treatment of Australian snake bites1 and is suitable for other elapid snake bites. It is also recommended for envenomation by a number of other animals. The PIT retards the flow of lymph by which venoms gain access to the circulation. It has also been shown that there may be inactivation of certain venoms and venom components when the injected venom remains trapped in the tissues by the pressure
bandage.

The AeroForm Snake Bite Bandage is also available in a shorter version for upper limbs and pediatric use.

  1. Sarah Hebblewhite

    A high quality snake bite bandage that is most likely the longest in the industry.
    I’ve been training in first aid for quite a number of years now and the other day someone was saved through the application of one of these.
    The pressure indicator squares make it easy to judge whether or not they’re correctly applied making training that much easier. It’s great to be able to purchase these so easily in pharmacies these days!

  2. April Currie

    great bandage – best I have seen in the market place. I love the indicator squares and as a first aid instructor, this is my bandage of recommendation

  3. Stuart Johnson

    As a professional Snake handler and former paramedic, I believe these are the best bandages on the market.
    The size, length, and inbuilt indicator make for easy and effective application. Compared to other bandages available, the AeroForm bandages are more affordable and superior in quality, A must have in any first aid kit and for any outdoors activity.

    This product is essential. I bought two – one for home and one for our car/caravan first aid kit. Absolutly essential for us country people who also travel! Easy to use – foolproof.

  7. Kaz56

    Value for money – I bought this product to have in my backpack when i go hiking. I really to not want to use it but have peace of mind that this product would provide first response first aid in the event of a snake bite.

  8. CB63

    Foolproof application.
    I bought two – one for home and one for when we’re out hiking. The special markings on the bandage make it easy for anyone to apply it using the correct amount of tension. Great piece-of-mind product to have on hand and reasonably priced too.

  9. Happycustomer93

    Great quality.
    Got this to put in our first aid kit. Great quality bandage. Prompt delivery. Just hope we never have to use it

  10. James D

    Excellent product for safety in the bush
    So glad to be able to keep one of these with me when hiking and riding in the bush, you never know when you might be able to save a life. So affordable as well.

  11. wedbead

    well packaged
    Hopefully dont have to use it. Bought several to give as gifts.

  12. Allan Fairbrother

    Great idea. However we got a whole batch of these bandages all rolled incorrectly because the indicator strip is on the wrong side. Maybe it may be possible to put the indicator on both sides?? Or get the guys in the factory to roll the bandage correctly.

  13. Aero Healthcare

    Hi Allan,
    Thanks for your comment!
    In order to allow the correct application, the indicators are always on the inside of the bandage.
    If we were to place the indicators on both sides, this would most likely lead to users wrongly applying the bandage.
    If you have any further concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
