To perform this type of block order alendronate 35 mg overnight delivery women's health clinic spruce grove, turn the hand palm up buy generic alendronate 35mg line women's health new dimensions, and follow the tendon of the finger down to the level of the first palmar crease line. Inserting the needle at a 45 degree angle, go down to the tendon and inject 2 ml of plain Lidocaine. If you notice resistance you are too close to the tendon and should pull back a little. Transthecal Injection Wait about 10 minutes or so before assessing for completeness of anesthesia. This may be done by lightly pricking with a safety pin or applying slight pressure to the area. After any work on the finger injury, immobilize it with a finger splint or the “buddy method” of using an adjacent finger for support. Some important things to know: Don’t inject any area that is clearly infected (red, swollen, warm to the touch). Pull back on the needle before you inject anesthesia; if you see blood in the syringe, abort and try again. If the injection is extremely painful, you may be hitting the nerve with the needle; abort and try again. Finally, it’s important to remember that, while we have the luxury of modern medical care, injuries and wounds should be treated by medical professionals. There are doctors with a lot of experience performing nerve blocks; take advantage of their expertise while they’re still there for you. Suturing is best done by someone with experience, but you don’t get that kind of experience in your typical first responder course. You’ll need to obtain the know-how to be able to function effectively, and that means knowing how to close a wound. Here’s a practice session that will give you an introduction to a brand new skill: Suturing. Suture kits are available commercially at various online sites, and are comprised of the following items: A needle holder, a toothed forceps (looks like tweezers), gauze pads, suture scissors, and a sterile drape to isolate the area being repaired. Some type of antiseptic solution such as Betadine (Povidone-Iodine) or Hibiclens (Chlorhexidine) will be needed and, of course, don’t forget gloves. A good all-purpose suture material for skin would be monofilament Nylon, which is permanent and must be removed later. Other permanent materials include Prolene, Silk, and Ethibond are also used for skin closure. Although you can suture deep layers with non-absorbable materials like Nylon, your body’s immune system will wall off each one. Suture material comes in various thicknesses: 0, 2-0, 3-0, 4-0, 5-0 and 6-0 are most commonly used on humans. I have used pig’s feet, chicken breast, orange peel, and even grape skin (for delicate work) as a medical student and none are exactly like living human skin. The skin of a pig’s foot is probably the closest thing you’ll find to the real thing. Place your pig’s foot on a level surface after defrosting it and washing it thoroughly. In a real wound, you would have irrigated the area well with an antiseptic to eliminate any debris from inside the wound. You will then paint the area to be sutured (this is called the “skin prep”) with a Betadine 2% solution or other antiseptic. The drape will usually be “fenestrated”, which means it has an opening in the middle to expose the area to be sutured. Although you are suturing a (deceased, I hope) pig’s foot, I’ll describe the process as if you are working with living tissue. Assuming your patient is conscious, you would want to numb the area with 1% or 2% Lidocaine solution (prescription). Place an injection at a 45 degree angle to the skin, and then inject enough to form a raised area on each side of the laceration (see figure below).
