NSRI CEO Dr Cleeve Robertson packing the Shark Bite Kits.Sea Rescue has started distributing shark bite kits to all 31 coastal rescue bases as the summer holidays start.“When dealing with shark bites the patient needs to be taken out of the water and the bleeding needs to be stopped as quickly as possible,” says NSRI CEO Dr Cleeve Robertson. “We are focusing on compression devices. Stopping bleeding saves lives. The most important things that we can do to help a person who has been bitten by a shark is to remove them from the water, stop the bleeding, stabilise them and then get them to hospital.”The shark bite kits can also be used for other serious injuries such as propeller wounds.In the new year we will be running an appeal to raise funds for more of these essential kits.
