Abstract

Crotaline snakebites occur frequently in children, often resulting in significant morbidity. Crotalidae Polyvalent Immune Fab antivenom (FabAV) became available for clinical use in the US in 2000 and is currently the standard of care for the treatment of crotaline envenomation. The pediatric emergency care provider should be familiar with FabAV because its judicious use in affected children can greatly decrease morbidity caused by crotaline snakebites. This article will review the use of FabAV for the treatment of pediatric crotaline envenomation.
