Pressure Immobilization Techniques

Important Information

First Aid pressure immobilization bandage techniques were developed by an Australian medical researcher in the 1970's

A pressure immobilization bandage often retards the movement of venom into the circulation from the bite site

The limb should be immobilized and the firm pressure of the bandaging restricts much of the poison from reaching the blood stream

Pressure immobilization is used mostly to treat snakebites and other bites and stings from venomous creatures
