We had a great turnout today to hear Dr. Andrew Skattum's talk "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" a talk about treatment and management of venomous snake bites. Dr. Skattum's talk was followed by George and Rose Van Horn from Reptile World Serpentarium demonstrating of how a venomous Rattle Snake is milked for the poison that will be used to create life-saving anti-venom. Osceola Regional Medical Center's Level II Trauma Center has the experience to treat venomous snake bites and Save Lives.
About 8,000 Americans are bitten by venomous snakes every year, and the chances are higher during the summer. Join us on Thursday, June 22 at 11:30AM to learn about snakebites and see how snake venom is milked. Osceola Regional, 700 W Oak St., Kissimmee.
