Author(s): Sadiur Rahman Sajon, Samiron Sana and Sohel Rana
Abstract: The mortality related to snake bites is an extreme public health problem because the estimated death prevalence per year is about 1,25,000 globally. Insufficient health services, bad transportation and consequent delay in synthetic anti-snake venom management are the main motives for excessive mortality. Adverse drug reactions and inadequate storage conditions limit the use of synthetic anti-snake venom. The medicinal flora, available domestically and used widely by traditional healers, consequently need attention. Most of the snake bite cases are typically undermined due to loss of proper consciousness of the mass people. However, present evaluation has been focused at the artificial and traditional herbs and their anti-venom property, which can be a venturing stone in setting up the future treatment against snake bite treatment and management.
