Strategic SOF pivots to AFRICOM and INDOPACOM have brought a number of surprises, such as treating snakebites. We caught up with one of the current snakebite SMEs to learn what got him interested in the field and how the arena of snakebite care has developed over the past couple of decades. In yet another rousting bit of education, he breaks down the “hot off the press” Joint Trauma Service snakebite clinical practice guidelines and helps us better understand the underlying phys-iology that medical professionals should consider when caring for patients who may have suffered an envenomation injury.
