Envenomation by a King Island tiger snake (Notechis ater humphreysi).
Med J Aust. 1982 Aug 21; 2(4):192-3.MJ

Abstract

A venomous King Island tiger snake (Notechis ater humphreysi)bit a herpetologist on the hand on the forty-eight floor of a Sydney city building. Prompt first-aid treatment, comprising the application of a wide constrictive bandage the length of the limb, combined with immobilisation, delayed central movement of the venom until resuscitative care and antivenom were available. The patient had received tiger-snake antivenom 16 years previously, and also suffered from atopic eczema. Administration of 6000 units of tiger-snake antivenom after parenteral administration of an antihistamine was uneventful. A transient rash on the second day and a mild urticarial rash on the twelfth day after envenomation may have been either serum reactions or allergic response to other medication.
