If you have seen the snake, you should be able to describe its appearance when medical staff arrives. Appearance might give them an idea to determine whether the snake was poisonous or not. If you have certain ideas about the snake and for sure you know that it was not a poisonous one, you can treat the snake bite same as you treat a punctured wound. In case you are unsure and the affected person is facing various symptoms such as finding difficulty in breathing and losing consciousness, call medical help as soon as possible.

Until the medical assistance arrives utilize the time to help the affected person to lie down. The wounded part should be below the level of the heart. Calm down the person and ask them to rest. Help them to remain still which will prevent the spread of venom in different areas of the body. Search for a sterile bandage and if not available get some clean cloth and cover the wounded area loosely. In case foot or leg was bitten by a snake, remove the shoes.

Do not try to perform any kind of surgery on own by scraping or cutting the wound open. Some people try to suck the poison out of the wound. Don't do that. It may not only quickly enter other areas of the body but also it may be dangerous to the life of another person who is doing that. Do not try to apply water or ice to the affected area. Do not give medications to the affected person and don't try to relax the person by offering caffeinated fluids or alcohol.

If the snake bite was not poisonous and you treated the wound at home itself does not necessarily mean that health care is not necessary. Call the doctor as the person still needs to be given tetanus injections. Every 10 years they have to be given a shot of tetanus boosters. Hospital treatment depends on whether the snake was poisonous or not. If it was poisonous, anti-venom type of treatment will be given to the patient.
