This kit does not perform as it says it does. If you've ever been biten by a snake or stung by a scorpion, etc. This kit will not suck out the venom as it says it does. Ive used it once when I was stung and it didn't work all that well. It only pushes the air out of the rubber suction cup and pinches the skin. If you really want a snake bite or sting kit that really works. Use the Extractor Pump Snake Bite Kit that uses a syringe plunger with multiple size cups for various stings and bites. They are also using these kits in physical therapy to pull away scar tissue and help stinulate damaged nerves to regain feeling after surgery therapy.
Ive used this and it actually works better than the rubber cup.

I will not be using these for snake bites but they suck well and are flexible but firm. The kit included 2 larger and one smaller sucker as well as iodine and some string. Not what you are supposed to do in the event of a snake bite but great for other purposes.

I don't know about snake bites thankfully, but it works perfectly for our nefarious purposes. In fact it works better then the expensive alternatives.

Standard wilderness response does not recommend this device, as it is essentially not effective. It is never recommended to tourniquet or cut a snakebite.

"Sucking out venom, either by mouth or with a pump, does not work and may harm the affected area directly." [..]) Also forget cutting and restricting as suggested in this kit (see snakebite at Wikipedia). As for bug / spider bites: "Do not cut or apply suction to the wound." [..]. Studies show the only positive results are placebo effects. Finally, WebMD states "Do not suck on the bite wound or use any kind of extraction device" as well as "Do not use a constriction band, such as a tourniquet or bandage, on a bite."

UPDATE: Below is from the Wall Street Journal Medical Department May 13, 2009:

"The suction devices are still under debate. One of the most popular devices, the Sawyer Extractor, sold by Sawyer Products Inc. of Safety Harbor, Fla., consists of a syringe-shaped chamber with a plunger that creates a vacuum. The company suggests leaving it on 10 to 15 minutes to extract the venom.

However, a study in pigs and one using radioactively labeled simulated venom injected into the thighs of eight human volunteers found the Sawyer Extractor ineffective. "It removes just a minute quantity of venom," says pig-study author Sean P. Bush, a professor of emergency medicine at California's Loma Linda University School of Medicine. Some doctors fear the deep suction could even worsen outcomes by killing skin at the wound site. The human study, published in 2004 by researchers at the University of California in Fresno, found that the device removed no more than 1% to 2% of mock venom from the leg.

Sawyer Products owner Kurt Avery says he believes the studies show only that the product doesn't work well in large muscle areas, such as thighs and calves.

An old reliable product that can be used for other purposes, if you get my drift! Good quality product, good price!

I bought a similar kit as this one from Amazon for my 22-year-old niece, who is expecting her first child in Jan 2013, as a "less-expensive" alternative for her to try and draw out flat/inverted nipples during her 3rd trimester- so she can breast feed. She started wearing breast shells, but didn't feel like it was doing anything, so after looking into a couple pricier products, we happened upon this (given one reviewer rating it for male-nipple enlargement). Since she already had the hard shells, I also purchased the Philips AVENT BPA Free Standard Nipple Protector, to give to her with this kit. So far, she says it seems like this product will work for the purpose she needed it for; although, apparently the inner-edges aren't very soft, or feel a little sharp around the areolas (so as not to discourage her, I haven't told her that the inner-edges of her snake-bite-cups will feel like heaven in comparison to the 1st week-or-so of nursing). Also, unbeknownst to us at the time of purchase, I guess the smaller cup that comes with this kit turned out to be great for pulling out just the nipple. My niece says after a few times of using the larger 2 cups around both the nipple and areola, she was able to use the smaller suction cup to draw out just each nipple even further. So between the suction cups & continuing to wear the breast shells (since these cups cannot be worn inside a bra or under clothes) she'll hopefully feel more confident, or maybe won't be as discouraged as she would have, once the baby has arrived and she starts nursing (which as many moms know, can be painful for both mom and baby). FYI, use lubricant to avoid cracking or cuts (she's using a lanolin breast feeding cream, but I'm sure anything emollient would work).Read more ›
