The lightweight, small, and reusable Sawyer’s Extractor Pump Kit extracts venom and poisons from the bites and stings of snakes, bees, and more. The double chamber vacuum pump action is designed to provide powerful suction for the extraction of venoms and poisons without the need for scalpel blades or knives used in other kits. Because it’s a pump — not a syringe — it’s easy to use with one hand.
Successfully used for over 30 years, the Extractor Pump is also a safe and useful first-aid device for treating bee and wasp stings as well as spider, scorpion, fly, or mosquito bites.
It most effectively retrieves venom from extremities and areas of the body outside muscle areas; effectiveness varies with the location of the bite.
How it works:
Safe Extraction of Venoms and Poisons
Select which of the four plastic cups best covers the bitten area, attach it to the pump, then simply push the plunger with your thumb. The Extractor Pump will quickly and effectively remove venoms and poisons from below your skin.
The Extractor can most effectively retrieve venom from the portions of the body that are outside muscle areas. In muscle areas of the body such as the calf muscles, the venom enters the circulatory system much more quickly and the Extractor is not as effective in removing venom in these areas.
TREATING SNAKE BITES
Retrieving venom from a snakebite using the Extractor Pump can significantly improve treatment results. The Extractor is not a replacement for quickly seeking professional medical treatment. The victim should also be taken to a hospital for further examination and medical treatment.
Most snake bites occur in extremities (arms, lower legs, feet, and ankles), and venom will pool outside of the muscles in bites to the hands, feet, and ankles. The Extractor Pump can most effectively retrieve venom that is pooled outside muscle areas.
TREATING INSECT BITES
Insect bites and stings leave venom, poison, or itchy compounds close to the skin’s surface where they can easily be retrieved. Best results occur when applying the pump quickly before the fluids enter the circulatory system. However, mosquito bites can often be treated successfully hours after a bite.
