The three recognisable clinical syndromes of PPS, progressive weakness and bleeding [1] correspond to the three venom types, namely cytotoxic, neurotoxic, and haemotoxic. If one of these syndromes has not manifested within 1 hour of a snakebite, clinically significant envenomation is unlikely to have occurred.
The main clinical damage caused by snakebite involves haemotoxic, neurotoxic and myotoxic reactions.
Study parameters were detailed history, site of bite, indoor or outdoor bite, type of snake if known, clinical features of signs of neurotoxic, haemotoxic and or local envenomation, bleeding either from the bite site or from any other site, swelling at the site of bite, ptosis, respiratory difficulty, neuroparalysis in the form of weakness of limbs, trunk, head lag, hypotonia, dysphagia, diplopia, drooling of saliva, dysgeusia, altered sensorium, vital signs on admission, pupillary size, pupillary reaction, extraocular movements, hypotonia, absent reflexes, pre-hospital therapy, time interval from bite to hospital admission, time interval from bite to administration of ASV.
The indications for antivenom treatment were: severe cytotoxic swelling, active bleeding in the case of haemotoxic envenomation, or symptomatic weakness in neurotoxic envenomations.
Patients with signs of envenomation will fall into one of three general syndromic categories, namely cytotoxic (painful progressive swelling), neurotoxic (progressive weakness) or haemotoxic (bleeding).
Four of them are front-fanged, haemotoxic venom ones, while the other two are back-fanged.
