Current diagnosis is
A crucial part of treating snakebite envenoming is to correctly diagnose the patient so that they can receive the specific antivenom that might save their life.
If time from bite to treatment exceeds 6 hours, the clinical burden increases drastically.
The current symptom-based diagnosis creates a delay between bite and treatment and when symptoms appear it may already be too late to effectively treat snakebite envenoming. This means unnecessarily many people die or become crippled for life.
The VenomAid Diagnostick is an affordable and sensitive test capable of providing a clinically relevant diagnostic result within minutes of loading either blood- or wound-swab sample onto the device.
By quickly detecting which snake bit you, the doctors can start early and correct treatment, saving costs, and more importantly, your life.
