Lionfish treatment

I just read the abstract of a five year study called:

Scorpaenidae envenomation. A five-year poison center experience
K. W. Kizer, H. E. McKinney and P. S. Auerbach

Here is the abstract from the article:

http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/abstract/253/6/807

Quote:
This article describes 51 cases of Scorpaenidae envenomation, 45 of which were lionfish stings to aquarists or fish handlers. The primary manifestation of envenomation in all victims was intense local pain. Various other local and systemic symptoms were also noted. Immersion in hot water produced either complete (80%) or moderate (14%) symptomatic relief in 94% of the victims. This simple and effective treatment was generally unknown to emergency personnel treating these patients.
A good thing to know if you keep these particular fish...
