For the estimated 7,000 individuals bitten by rattlesnakes, copperheads, and cottonmouths in the U.S. each year, “time is tissue” and timely treatment is critical. Patients that are not quickly and appropriately treated are at risk of skin and tissue damage, limb function disability or loss, neurotoxic effects, dangerous internal bleeding, and systemic injury to the heart, stomach, and other organs. This makes it important to understand and manage antivenom stock levels.
Using the OMNY Health™ platform, near real-time data about CroFab® stock levels at participating healthcare institutions will be captured and securely shared with BTG and the Rocky Mountain Poison & Drug Center (RMPDC), and in time will expand to additional healthcare providers and poison control centers.
