Rattlesnake bite! What is the initial treatment?
Cut the wound open with a knife, and apply pressure around the area to promote bleeding, and removal of excess venom
Immobilize the extremity, note the time of the bite, trace the red border around the wound, and get the patient to medical help
First priority: Tourniquet above the level of the wound
Use a suction cup or similar to extract as much of the poison as possible
