Selected Safety Information about CroFab®
In clinical trials, recurrent coagulopathy (the return of a coagulation abnormality after it has been successfully treated with antivenin), characterized by decreased fibrinogen, decreased platelets, and elevated prothrombin time, occurred in approximately half of the patients studied. Recurrent coagulopathy may persist for 1 to 2 weeks or more. Patients who experience coagulopathy due to snakebite should be monitored for recurrent coagulopathy for up to 1 week or longer.

An ER Must-Have!
This is a pretty functional app. It shows mixing instructions, interventions and algorithms in regards to snakebite management and antivenin administration.
It beats finding an unused computer, logging in and printing off info at the Crofab website. Now I can reference the info from my phone at the bedside if needed.
I cannot get past the initial page to agree to the terms without the app crashing. Very disappointed since it was recommended by the crofab reps at my facility.
