The pressure immobilisation technique (PIT) was introduced for the treatment of Australian snake bites and is suitable for other elapid snake bites.
It is also recommended for envenomation by a number of other animals.
The PIT retards the flow of lymph by which venoms gain access to the circulation.
It has also been shown that there may be inactivation of certain venoms and venom components when the injected venom remains trapped in the tissues by the pressure
