This Guideline elaborates on the important aspects of snakebite clinical management, particularly on the recognition of the species involved and the clinical syndrome caused by envenoming as well as the appropriate investigation and treatment. Medically important species found in Malaysia and the predominant clinical features of envenoming are described to facilitate species diagnosis and syndrome recognition, which constitute the most basic information to determine the treatment approach.
