The hemotoxin causes damage to the blood vessels with extravasations of blood into the tissues and extensive swelling and discoloration of the soft parts.
Other components are the anticoagulating factor, which prevents blood coagulation and predisposes to haemorrhage; the haemolysin, which causes red blood cells to dissolve; the agglutinin component which causes agglutination of both red and white blood cells; and other less well established cell poisons.
The North American snakes, such as rattlesnakes, copperheads, moccasins, inject venom, which contains a considerable amount of the hemotoxin and haemolysin, but it is not as rapid in its action as that of some of the tropical snakes.

As an example, if you were fighting a creature that was particularly powerful, you could wait for Hemotoxin to proc, stun the creature briefly, snare it, and run away while the creature chased you, the poison would continue to damage the creature until it's full duration ran out.
In the case of Hemotoxin, this duration is 24 seconds.
This means that Hemotoxin can proc, then the DoT interval timer starts (or is in progress, anywhere up to 24 seconds past the initial proc) and then Hemotoxin can proc again before the DoT duration expires, which resets the DoT interval timer, which will again last another 24 seconds, doing damage every 6 seconds.
