The pressure immobilisation technique (PIT) was introduced for the treatment of Australian snake bites1 and is suitable for other elapid snake bites. It is also recommended for envenomation by a number of other animals. The PIT retards the flow of lymph by which venoms gain access to the circulation. It has also been shown that there may be inactivation of certain venoms and venom components when the injected venom remains trapped in the tissues by the pressure bandage. The AeroForm Snake Bite Bandage is also available in a shorter version for upper limbs and pediatric use.
