Australian Bites & Stings: First Aid Guide to Australian Venomous Creatures
|Australia is home to many of the world’s most venomous snakes, spiders and marine animals, and Seqirus is the world’s sole producer of antivenoms for Australia’s most venomous creatures; a community service it began in the 1930s. |
As part of Seqirus’s commitment to providing education to our community about the unique venomous creatures that may cross the paths of Australians, we have introduced a free smartphone app – Australian Bites & Stings: First Aid Guide to Australian Venomous Creatures – which hosts up-to-date first aid information.
This unique app will be of use to anyone planning to be out in Australia’s great outdoors – whether it be on the beach, camping, bushwalking or just gardening in a back yard!
‘If people are concerned about a bite or sting they should contact a healthcare professional immediately; however, if this is not an option and guidance is needed, a smartphone app is a great way to have first aid advice immediately at hand.”
- Dr Bill Nimo,
Deputy Director Emergency Medicine, Epworth Richmond Hospital
