Did You Know?

NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi has the only Snakebite Treatment Center in the entire tri-state area? The Jacobi Snakebite Center is a highly specialized program founded in the early 1980s in cooperation with herpetologists at The Bronx Zoo. Jacobi treats 5 to 10 patients a year who have snakebite injuries serious enough to merit treatment with antivenom. Note that this treatment is not without risk. A victim of a cobra bite might well die of respiratory failure if not treated quickly with life support and specific antivenom. In the NYC area this is available only at Jacobi.

The Hyperbaric Medicine Program has treated nearly 3,000 victims of carbon monoxide poisoning – more than any other hospital in the Northeastern United States.
