This forearm laceration was repaired after local anesthetic and irrigation, using deep dermal and simple interrupted sutures. Presented by Jess Mason.
If you use a 1.5" 27g (or 25 depending on the location) for large lacs like this you don't have to stick the patient as many times and it's overall a little quicker. :-)
I totally agree. With it being so large a nerve block is another good approach, but it crosses a few dermatomes. Maybe a Bier block would have been best.
If I only knew someone who could make an HD video on doing a Bier block... ;-) [insert that cool video sound effect]
It's totally on my wish list. I'll get there. :)
What you do matters.
