Special Considerations for Blue Ringed Octopus Bite

If CPR is required, it must be maintained until the diver begins to breathe (which could take some hours).

The pressure bandage must not occlude the circulation; the finger/toes beyond the bandage should remain pink with normal sensation; the bandage should be left in place until proper medical support is available.
