T-shirts can be used to treat emergency snake bites according to NSW paramedics, as long as they are tied not too tight.

With the weather heating up snakes and spiders will be more active, meaning a greater potential to be bitten when mountain bike riding,  bush walking or even cleaning the house.  

This comes as a 20 year old woman was bitten on the leg by a brown snake in East Jindabyne.

NSW Ambulance Inspector John Brotherhood said suggests t-shirts can be used in emergency situations rather than bandages. 

"Snake bites should never be treated with a tourniquet as it will cut the circulation off, oxygen is needed to combat the venom," Mr Brotherhood said.
