  • Syncope, massive aspiration, and sudden death following rattlesnake bite WILDERNESS & ENVIRONMENTAL MEDICINE Norris, R. L., Wilkerson, J. A., Feldman, J. 2007; 18 (3): 206-208


    Fatalities following rattlesnake bite are rare in the United States, usually occur some hours following the bite, and are generally secondary to direct venom effects. We report a patient with acute syncope and subsequent massive aspiration resulting in airway obstruction and rapid death following a probable Northern Pacific rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus oreganus) bite.
