Poison Boy back from battling Hurricane Matthew to a standstill – worst casualty was an umbrella that literally exploded when I opened it in the middle of 75 mph winds. This episode is all about snakes – copperheads to be specific. Seen several patients in the past several weeks that have unluckily wound up on the receiving end of a ticked off pit viper. We talk about the snakes themselves, as well as the controversies surrounding treatment of copperhead envenomation. Then we discuss THE SNAKE CHARMER – a book guaranteed to keep you up all night.
