Marine Animal Bites and Stings

EM@3AM (emDocs) - September 26, 2020 
By Taliaferro D - Reviewed by: Santos C; Koyfman A; Long B
"Background: Human contact with species of venomous marine life are relatively common especially in tropical and coastal regions of the world. Common organisms include spiny fish, cone snails, jelly fish, sea snakes, octopi and stingrays. There is an estimated 10 million envenomations worldwide, most being caused by jellyfish. Most of these animals do not inhabit US waters. It is important to know what the common organisms are based on region to determine if an envenomation can be potentially fatal. While most of these envenomations are relatively mild, there are fatal organisms that are most commonly in Australian and Pacific waters."
