In the present cross sectional study we have studied coagulation profile and clinical manifestations in cases of snake bite and correlated the severity of clinical findings with the coagulation profile. A total of 158 cases of snake bite were included for analysis of coagulation profile in this analytical study by excluding the neurotoxic cases. Of these, 67 (40.6%) cases were non-venomous, whereas 98 (59.4%) cases were venomous snake bite cases. Out of the 98 venomous snake bite cases, 91 (55.4%) cases were vasculotoxic snake bite and 07 (4.2%) cases were neurotoxic snake bite. We observed a positive result of 20 minute whole blood clotting test (WBCT) in 53 (58.2%) vasculotoxic snake bite cases. The sensitivity of 20 minute WBCT was 66.2% and specificity was 97.5%. Local pain was the most common local symptom observed in 133 (84.2%) cases followed by swelling at the site of bite which comprised of 127 (80.4%) cases. All the investigative steps were carried out and classified according to ICD-10 standards.
