Product Description

Product Description

Sawyer Extractor Pump Kit extracts venom and poisons from the bites and stings of snakes, bees, wasps, mosquitos and more. The Extractor's double chamber vacuum pump action is designed to provide powerful suction for the extraction of venoms and poisons without the need for scalpel blades or knives used in other kits. Because it's a pump, not a syringe, it's easy to use with one hand. When using select one of the 4 plastic cups that will best cover the bitten area and attach it to the pump, then using your thumb simply push the plunger and the extractor pump will quickly and effectively remove venoms and poisons from beneath your skin. By simply cleaning the cups after each use you can safely reuse the pump many times over. The Sawyer Extractor is most effective at retrieving venom outside of the muscle areas of the body. Retrieving venom quickly can significantly improve treatment results by medical practitioners. In muscle areas such as the calf muscles, venom quicly enters the circulatory system and an extractor pump is less effective.

At a Glance

Because the Extractor's double chamber pump action is so powerful, you will not need to use the dangerous scalpel blades or knives associated with less effective bite kits. Because it's a pump and not a syringe, it's easy to use with one hand.

Just select which of the four plastic cups best covers the bitten area, attach it to the pump, then a simple push of the plunger with your thumb and the Extractor Pump will quickly and effectively remove venoms and poisons from below your skin. By simply cleaning the cups after each use you may safely reuse the pump over and over again.

The Extractor can most effectively retrieve venom from the portions of the body that are outside muscle areas. In muscle areas of the body such as the calf muscles the venom enters the circulatory system much more quickly and the Extractor is not as effective in removing venom in these areas. Retrieving venom can significantly improve your treatment results.

The Technology

  • The Extractor Pump is the only medically approved device for treating snakebites. When used quickly after a bite, treatment results may be significantly improved. Some doctors recommend carrying and applying two pumps, one for each fang bite site.
  • The pump has been used successfully for over 30 years as an adjunct in the treatment of snakebites and for bee sting venom removal. The pump is not a replacement for quickly seeking professional medical treatment. The victim should also be taken to a hospital for further examination and medical treatment.
  • The Extractor Pump is also a safe and useful first aid device for treating bee and wasp stings as well as spider, scorpion, fly, or mosquito bites.
  • If you are known to be allergic and carry an Epipen pen, this is in no way a substitute; however, rapid relief from the pain or itching from a bite can be achieved. Retrieving venom from a snakebite can significantly improve treatment results. The effectiveness of the Extractor Pump varies with the location of the bite. Most snakebites occur in extremities (arms, lower legs, feet, and ankles). Venom often pools outside of the muscles in bites to the hands, feet and ankles. The Extractor Pump can most effectively retrieve venom that is pooled outside muscle areas. In large muscle mass areas, such as the calf muscle, venom enters the circulatory system much more quickly and the Extractor Pump is not as effective in removing venom in these areas.

    Insect bites and stings leave venom, poison, or itchy compounds close to the skin's surface where they can easily be retrieved. Best results occur when applying the pump quickly before the fluids enter the circulatory system. However, mosquito bites can often be treated successfully hours after a bite.

I used it when I was stung by bees -no pain, no swelling, bees sting relieved.
karen liotta
And this isn't just a syringe you use for suction -- this is designed for its intended purpose and I can easily use it one-handed.
madeinusa
I hope I never need to use it, but if I do, i'm confident it will do the job well.

Hello,

My name is Jordan Benjamin, I am a herpetologist specializing in venomous snakes and a wilderness medicine practitioner with experience treating many snakebite patients in West and East Africa, most of them in remote health centers that pose some of the same challenges as treatment of a snakebite in the wilderness or backcountry environment in the US (supplies are limited or non-existent, the patient has a long way to go to reach a hospital, etc). I have also been fortunate to have the opportunity to train a number of individuals and groups in snakebite medicine and field management of snake envenomations in remote conditions including medical officers and corpsmen with the US military, local & international doctors and nurses in African hospitals, wildlife rangers, etc. I am including my background and real name because this issue is important to me and I stand by everything I am about to write; I want to give you all the peace of mind that I am who I say I am and not some competing company throwing out baseless accusations behind the cloak of online anonymity. Feel free to look me up online, I gave a TEDx talk on the issue of snakebite in sub-Saharan Africa last year and I invite those who doubt my identity or simply want to learn more about the issue of snakebite in the developing world to check it out. Moving on to the review...

The short answer to the question of whether or not the Sawyer Extractor can effectively remove venom from the site of the bite is a resounding no: the Sawyer Extractor and all of the other "snakebite kit" variations employing suction, incisions, electricity, heat, cold, and so forth have been repeatedly shown to be utterly ineffective at the job they are designed and marketed to accomplish. They simply do not work!

This extractor is great for a VARIETY of uses. It's great for it's intended purpose, such as bug bites, bee stings, etc., but it is also great for getting out splinters, glass slivers, blackheads, etc. It has an incredibly strong suction capability. Yet, is not painful, and does not leave a mark.

Contractor and avid hiker in Tucson AZ
My young kids are now experts at this. Have used it on numerous unknown stings / bites - and have watched liquid come of the sting hole, and then seen less swelling / irritation. One sting in particular had my son almost crying, and he experienced immediate relief. I've had two employees go the hospital for (probably black widow or brown recluse) stings - and now keep this around (we have two kits).

No disrespect to the Doctor who does not approve of this and says to get medical attention, but I completely disagree with him about not using this first. We all get to live with our choices - and my way of looking at it as a mechanical engineer with a masters degree is getting some poison out is better than not getting some out - and I'll risk a little tissue damage from the vacuum force around the wound. Additionally if I'm bit by a rattle snake in one of the places I go hiking alone I'm gonna have to walk and hour out and then drive an hour to the hospital. If thats the case getting out what poison I can (even if its only 10%) is better in my opinion than walking for an hour, driving for an hour and then asking the emergency room to fix me after the poison have been circulated in my blood stream for two hours.

Make your choice, live with the consequence - Mine is to keep and use the vacuum when needed.

I'm actually writing this review from a hospital in Oklahoma. I was hiking with my wife in Beavers Bend park in Oklahoma when I was bitten by a Pygmy rattlesnake ( I know this because when he bit me his fangs got stuck in my calf and I quickly reached down and grabbed him by the neck and extracted him from my calf, and took his body with me to the hospital where it was identified by the ER physician and park rangers) I bought this after my wife was bitten at home in Quinlan, Texas 2 years ago by a copperhead and spent almost 2 months off of work. I immediately applied the suction device and was amazed to actually see venom pull out of the bite into the device. After two times of applying the device for 2 minutes per time I was no longer getting anything out of the bite. Two things are of interest here when dealing with a bite, especially a rattlesnake bite. It will not remove all of the venom. That being said I took what venom I had extracted to the hospital and the ER doc said that with the amount of venom I had taken out was enough to cause serious problems, and that I may have actually saved life or limb by using it. the second is that these bites are extremely painful. I was able to sit down and rest and contact the rangers who were AMAZING! in getting to me promptly and evacuating me to the hospital. I feel that this product quite possibly saved my life! I will never go hiking without one.

I think this is a must-have for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. It covers prevention and treatment of snake bites, bee stings, scorpions stings, tick bites, etc, etc, etc in the included manual. And this isn't just a syringe you use for suction -- this is designed for its intended purpose and I can easily use it one-handed.

To use it you just select one of the four "heads" that matches your "bite size", attach it and pull the plunger out, cover your bite, then push the plunger down. It does the work for you after that, slowly extending the plunger out on its own and creating a lot of suction that draws out the cooties. Easy to use on yourself.

The kit weighs 3.6oz and that's including the plastic box, a disposable razor (for shaving hair/creating good suction), two afterbite sting/pain relief wipes, two alcohol wipes, and a comprehensive manual(although mostly common sense). Just the guts (four heads and extractor tool) weigh 1.1oz. Most first aid kits will have alcohol/bite wipes but if not, you will now.
