Application of Correct First Aid is Critical when it Comes to Australia’s Deadliest
Australia is home to some of the world’s most deadly creatures. From the aggressive Sydney Funnel Web Spider through the infamous Blue-ringed octopus and of course the wide range of venomous land and sea snakes, it seems that wherever Australian’s live, there is a vast range of deadly critters lurking around the corner. Despite the incredible toxicity of some of these creatures, the quick application of correct first aid can radically affect the patient’s outcome.
Unfortunately, despite possessing a large proportion of the world’s deadliest snakes and spiders, Austraila has some of the lowest rates of first aid training according to the Australian Red Cross. 1
