    The device is great for draining pimples & other small abscesses but I don’t recommend for poisonous bites. I spend a lot of time in the wilderness and am a critical care MD. Received one like this as a gift in 2000 and no longer carry it based on poor results from studies. Wilderness Medicine Educators no longer recommend this type of product. Below is a summary-from Wall Street Journal Medical Department-May 13, 2009:

    “The suction devices are still under debate. One of the most popular devices, the Sawyer Extractor, sold by Sawyer Products Inc. of Safety Harbor, Fla., consists of a syringe-shaped chamber with a plunger that creates a vacuum. The company suggests leaving it on 10 to 15 minutes to extract the venom.

    However, a study in pigs and one using radioactively labeled simulated venom injected into the thighs of eight human volunteers found the Sawyer Extractor ineffective. “It removes just a minute quantity of venom,” says pig-study author Sean P. Bush, a professor of emergency medicine at California’s Loma Linda University School of Medicine. Some doctors fear the deep suction could even worsen outcomes by killing skin at the wound site. The human study, published in 2004 by researchers at the University of California in Fresno, found that the device removed no more than 1% to 2% of mock venom from the leg.

    Sawyer Products owner Kurt Avery says he believes the studies show only that the product doesn’t work well in large muscle areas, such as thighs and calves. Based on the results, the company changed its label about two years ago to warn that the pump is “not as effective” at removing venom from large muscle areas. Mr. Avery maintains the product is effective when the bite is under the skin in hands, feet and other nonmuscled areas.

    That argument doesn’t sound plausible to Stanford University’s Paul S. Auerbach. Dr. Auerbach, who had advocated use of the Sawyer pump in his 2003 book “Medicine for the Outdoors” and is listed on Sawyer’s Web site as supporting the product, says the new edition of his book, expected out next month from Elsevier Inc., will recommend against its use based on newer research.”

    I’ve used this on stings, spider bites and even mosquito bites. IT ROCKS! My son was stung 4 times by wasps that nested in his playhouse. I put it on each sting for two minutes immediately. Within 10 minutes the welts were gone and within an hour and a half the swelling was gone. None of the stings became feverish and by morning they were hard to find. No knots, not welts, no swelling, no fever at the sting sites. If you don’t have one of these you might not be a “bad parent” per se but if you have one you just might be a better parent! ;o)

    I’ve never had the opportunity to use it on a snake bite and hope I never do but I have to believe that it would remove some of the venom and every little bit counts when you’re stung or bit.

    Use it for mosquito’s instead of itching for a week!

    This pump is phenomenal. The old snake bite kits with the razor are outdated. It surprises me that they even make them today. And it surprises me even more that stores actually carry them, especially when this product exists. There’s simply no comparison. I bought one of these a couple years ago and kept it in my hiking gear.

    Last summer I was bit by a Hobo spider and this pump saved me a trip to the ER. I was amazed at how powerful the pump is. I could clearly see the venom as it was being sucked out. Afterwards, the skin discoloration and stinging from the bite were gone and the only evidence that it ever happened was the two fang marks in my skin. Someone else in a similar situation might want to make a trip to the clinic, just to be safe. Sometimes, though, you’re far in the backwoods and can’t get to help readily. At times like that, this pump could potentially save a life.

    Thankfully, I haven’t had to use this for a snake bite, but I have no doubt it would work. I now keep two of these close by–one in my house and the other in my car. I use them for mosquito bites, too, and they effectively eliminate the itching. I recommend this pump to EVERYONE and wouldn’t be without it.
