Brief description This proposal seeks funding to undertake a controlled trial of clotting factor replacement in snake bite coagulopathy after the administration of a neutralising dose of antivenom. The aim is to determine if factor replacement will result in a rapid return of clotting function in patients and therefore reduce the potential risk of major bleeding. This study will have international implications because globally snakebite coagulopathy is a major cause of morbidity and death like in Australia.
