Scorpion Sting Emergency Protocol

Using the Venomosity Rule of Thumb, the initial pain experienced by the patient, and the factors that influence the severity of a scorpion sting, we can predict the severity of future symptoms.

To better understand the expected severity of scorpion envenomation, remember: Scorpions with small pincers and a thick tail are more venomous than scorpions with large pincers and a thin tail.
