In the country, by the sea, in the mountains, hiking, playing sports, extreme adventures, tourism, leisure activities, daily life…. ASPIVENIN® pump is life!
An indispensable first-aid device for every family’s medicine chest, present in every first-aid kit, the ASPIVENIN® pump is a mini-pump which sucks out venom in the case of toxic bites and stings.
Always handy, the ASPIVENIN® pump allows for a wait for the indispensable intervention of a doctor in severe cases (allergies or dangerous aggressions)
From the first sting or bite, to avoid itching, pain and unpleasant reactions, there is a fast, practical and effective solution: ASPIVENIN®
This patented medical device (class 1) is a product manufactured in France that won the Lépine competition in 1983.
It’s a suction mini-pump which painlessly removes all injected venom from insects (wasps, bees, horseflies, hornets…), arachnids (spiders, scorpions, harvest ticks…), fish (weevers, scorpion fish…) as well as certain rash-inducing plants.
It has a double-chamber system with an extended locking piston which causes an instant and permanent depression of around 800 millibars, ten times buccal suction.
Always handy, the ASPIVENIN® pump allows for a wait for the indispensable intervention of a doctor in severe cases (allergies or dangerous aggressions).
ASPIVENIN® pump in 4 steps :
Gently place the nozzle best fitted to the type and location of the sting or bite, then arm the pump by pulling out the piston all the way (half for children).
With one hand, place the ASPIVENIN® pump with its nozzle on the wound.
Fully depress the piston, and you will feel a powerful suction. Let the ASPIVENIN® pump act for 20 sec to 3 minutes (Adjust the suction time according to the stings or bites: see the instructions for use.
This duration can easily be prolonged or renewed, especially in severe cases.
Then lift the piston button with the tip of the thumb to remove the ASPIVENIN® pump.
We suggest you handle Aspivenin® several times with recommended instructions before use. We also advise you to keep your Aspivenin® within reach if you are in an environment at risk.
The duration of application varies according to cases: for mosquito or fly stings, 20 to 30 seconds may be sufficient. For bees, wasps or horse/sandflies, it is recommended to apply the ASPIVENIN® pump for 1 to 3 minutes before cleaning the wound with an antiseptic.
Be careful: for bee stings, do not remove the sting before aspirating, as its presence facilitates venom extraction. Remove it later.
By Sandflies bites, do not hesitate to try to open the bite using clean fingers and let bead out the bite when pumping it.
For bites of a sandfly, spider or scorpion, to avoid the inevitable coagulation of the wound, apply the ASPIVENIN® pump for 1 to 2 minutes before cleaning the wound with an antiseptic.
For more severe stings, like that of a stone fish, applying the ASPIVENIN® for 2 to 3 minutes is necessary. Do not forget to regularly clean the wound with a disinfectant and to wait for some rapid and indispensable medical care.
Most often, after a sting, there is more or less intense pain according to the nature of the aggressor, and the quantity of venom injected. The skin becomes red and hardens. Swelling is a response from the body to the aggression to clinically neutralize it.
The histaminic reaction appears as a rash, generally followed by swelling and more or less intense itching.
In the case of an allergy, the consequences of envenomation are more or less severe.
A local allergic reaction is the most common, and in its severest form, it can reach the two joints closest to the sting or bite. It increases gradually and reaches its peak within 24 to 48 hours. Any swelling should be monitored.
A general allergic reaction, or anaphylaxis, is rare.
Most often slight, just on the skin or mucus area but far from the sting (a rash), it may be accompanied by anxiety and malaise. Its effect on other target organs is its biggest threat.
There may be ophthalmological signs (conjunctivitis), but also pharyngitis and laryngitis (Quincke’s oedema), which can lead to the obstruction of upper-body air passages.
Pulmonary signs with bronchial spasms (asthma attacks); digestive signs (diarrhoeas, abdominal pain, vomiting); neurological signs with confusion, extreme anxiety and a feeling of imminent death; symptoms like dysphagia (difficulties with swallowing), dysphonia (difficulties with speaking), and dyspnea (laboured breathing) are signs of seriousness.
At the end of the scale, there is a weakening of the cardiovascular system with anaphylactic shock and collapse (falling blood pressure), leading to death without emergency therapy. Cardiac arrest can occur suddenly, either from hypoxia (lack of oxygen) linked to respiratory failure or the persistence of collapse.
