Interesting to see so much ash used.

So satisfying to watch.

Great advice about Snake Bite Management#SnakeBite
That bite of summer has well and truly come early this year and with that heat, comes snakes.
This article was written by Rob Timmings
Rob runs a medical/nursing education business Teaching nurses, doctors and paramedics. It’s well worth the read
#ECT4Health

3000 bites are reported annually.
300-500 hospitalisations
2-3 deaths annually.

Average time to death is 12 hours. The urban myth that you are bitten in the yard and die before you can walk from your chook pen back to the house is a load of rubbish.

While not new, the management of snake bite (like a flood/fire evacuation plan or CPR) should be refreshed each season.

Let’s start with a
Basic overview.

There are five genus of snakes that will harm us (seriously)
Browns, Blacks, Adders, Tigers and Taipans.

All snake venom is made up of huge proteins (like egg white). When bitten, a snake injects some venom into the meat of your limb (NOT into your blood).

This venom can not be absorbed into the blood stream from the bite site.

It travels in a fluid transport system in your body called the lymphatic system (not the blood stream).

Now this fluid (lymph) is moved differently to blood.
Your heart pumps blood around, so even when you are lying dead still, your blood still circulates around the body. Lymph fluid is different. It moves around with physical muscle movement like bending your arm, bending knees, wriggling fingers and toes, walking/exercise etc.

Now here is the thing. Lymph fluid becomes blood after these lymph vessels converge to form one of two large vessels (lymphatic trunks)which are connected to veins at the base of the neck.

Back to the snake bite site.
When bitten, the venom has been injected into this lymph fluid (which makes up the bulk of the water in your tissues).

The only way that the venom can get into your blood stream is to be moved from the bite site in the lymphatic vessels. The only way to do this is to physically move the limbs that were bitten.

Stay still!!! Venom can’t move if the victim doesn’t move.
Stay still!!

Remember people are not bitten into their blood stream.

In the 1980s a technique called Pressure immobilisation bandaging was developed to further retard venom movement. It completely stops venom /lymph transport toward the blood stream.

A firm roll bandage is applied directly over the bite site (don’t wash the area).

Technique:
Three steps: keep them still
Step 1
Apply a bandage over the bite site, to an area about 10cm above and below the bite.
Step 2:
Then using another elastic roller bandage, apply a firm wrap from Fingers/toes all the way to the armpit/groin.

The bandage needs to be firm, but not so tight that it causes fingers or toes to turn purple or white. About the tension of a sprain bandage.

Step 3:
Splint the limb so the patient can’t walk or bend the limb.

Do nots:
Do not cut, incise or suck the venom.
Do not EVER use a tourniquet
Don’t remove the shirt or pants - just bandage over the top of clothing.
Remember movement (like wriggling out of a shirt or pants) causes venom movement.

DO NOT try to catch, kill or identify the snake!!! This is important.

In hospital we NO LONGER NEED to know the type of snake; it doesn’t change treatment.

5 years ago we would do a test on the bite, blood or urine to identify the snake so the correct anti venom can be used.
BUT NOW...
we don’t do this. Our new Antivenom neutralises the venoms of all the 5 listed snake genus, so it doesn’t matter what snake bit the patient.

Read that again- one injection for all snakes!
Polyvalent is our one shot wonder, stocked in all hospitals, so most hospitals no longer stock specific Antivenins.

Australian snakes tend to have 3 main effects in differing degrees.

Bleeding - internally and bruising.
Muscles paralysed causing difficulty talking, moving & breathing.
Pain
In some snakes severe muscle pain in the limb, and days later the bite site can break down forming a nasty wound.

Allergy to snakes is rarer than winning lotto twice.

Final tips: not all bitten people are envenomated and only those starting to show symptoms above are given antivenom.

Did I mention to stay still.

Great advice about Snake Bite Management

Comment on Facebook

Excellent awareness which reassures the anxious parties who hate snakes. Thanks.

Anthony Tony Speed

Thanks Rob for the Snake bite advice

Good to know

Unfortunately, the information about the "one shot" anti-venom is incorrect. Bad reactions (such as anaphylaxis) are more likely with this approach - so best practice is to stick with specific anti-venoms unless absolutely necessary. However, the First Aid for a bite information is very good.

Dear Jeannette and colleagues,

On behalf of the Ngara Institute, I would like to offer my warmest congratulations on the tenth anniversary of the Mullumbimby Community Gardens. The Gardens are a magnificent achievement and a credit to all those involved over the years. They have become emblematic of Mullumbimby’s commitment to localisation and regenerative practices. They are also very beautiful!

But the gardens symbolise much more than this. They are part of a global environmental justice movement that is seeking to create a different way of life based on peace, justice and ecological regeneration. The gardens are a shining example of what can be achieved when a few committed people get together to create a place of wisdom, wonder and utility. My partner and I walked around the gardens yesterday and we marvelled at what we saw.

So once again, congratulations to everyone involved and I look forward to the twentieth anniversary!

Best wishes,

Mullumbimby Community Garden
156 Stuart St, Mullumbimby

$10/$5conc
Members Free

Come and keep warm in July and help us try and make the
BIGGEST HOT COMPOST HEAP IN THE WORLD with local horticulturist Diane Hart.

Get all of her HOT TIPS on how to make it - what to put in and what to leave out and how to turn waste into wonder.

We need as many people as we can get to bring their GREEN WASTE and help turn lovely loads of RUBBISH into BLACK GOLD. The soil is already saying THANK YOU.

EVERY SINGLE DAY tons of valuable organic material are thrown away by households and food outlets in Byron Shire – which then goes to the tip. So let’s start collecting it and HOT COMPOST it into something useful.

WE NEED YOU TO BRING lots of bags, boxes and bins full of:

• Horse manure, stable and chook pen sweepings.
• Lawn clippings ( not sprayed)
• Dried grass
• Leaves
• Food scraps (no more than 3 days old please and no meat, fish or dairy)
• Coffee grounds (café’s are happy for you to collect if you take them a bucket – Australians throw away 3,000 tons each year!)
• Juicing pulp from café’s (same, take them a bucket and collect)
• Comfrey and lemon grass prunings
• Hair from hairdressers (clean waste please)

Santos Organics Lennox Community Gardens Northern Rivers Community Gardens Network Lismore Community Garden SCU Community Gardens Ballina Community Gardens IncThe Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network are pledging our official support of The Vegetable Plot

The Vegetable Plot are an award-winning bunch of roots musicians who have sprung from the underground on a radical mission: to get kids to fall in love with vegetables!

We want to show our support for this amazing group of talented musicians on their journey to create a soundtrack for the food revolution! One that is reconnecting us to the food we eat, and helping kids and families to understand and care about their food, where it comes from and how it's grown.

We share this same mission and passion and we know you do to!

The Vegetable Plots tunes provide joy and inspiration.
“Changing our food habits and our food culture from one of speed and convenience to one based on community benefit and good nutrition, requires a bit of effort and determination for most people. Our music can provide that vital sense of fun and inspiration that gets people to take the first step, and then the next step, and the step after that. Our music isn't just a bunch of catchy jingles, it features characters and stories, it takes you on a journey, it grows on you, and it grows with you. Most of all, it is as appealing to adults as it is to kids. "

We would love you to connect to this message and this music and share with your community! and most of all we would love your help as supporters and donors to this next album fundraiser.
