Vol 30, No 10 (2012): Snake bites, spider bites and scorpion stings
Following the recent Bio-Ken Snakebite Seminar, we have a host of fresh, informative content, thanks to our visiting speakers and a weekend of networking and discussions among the 150 seminar attendees. Over the coming months we will consolidate and share much of this content online, please keep an eye on our Social Media accounts for links to the content as and when it goes live on our website.
A snippet of such content comes from the very informative lecture given by Professor Warrell on The Correct Management of Severe Scorpion Stings in Africa. As many of our readers are aware, there was a recent severe scorpion sting in Meru National Park. This case provided the basis for one of the lectures at the seminar.
Professor Warrell referred to a useful online publication by CME (Continuing Medical Education), the 'leading medical Continuing Professional Education (CPD) journal in South Africa', written by South African experts for South African doctors.
The publication is Vol 30, No 10 (2012): Snake bites, spider bites and scorpion stings.
The co-author of this Volume is G J Müller, who was due to speak at this year's seminar but sadly was unable to attend. Professor Warrell kindly stepped in to speak on Scorpion Stings in his place, for which Bio-Ken were very grateful for yet another highly engaging lecture by the Professor.
