Hemostats are really nice for pulling slivers.
Also ‘roach clips’ I’ve heard…
Oh! Are they good for catching cockroaches too?
You’d better stock up. It’s almost April.
What happens in April besides showers? I do that anyway.
Weeds start to grow.
Too late! I was going to mow (actually use a weed whacker) on the patio portion of my “Patio Home” this weekend.
But are they autoclaveable? I’d like them cleaned in between surgery in my yard.
Only if you need to interrogate them.
But in seriousness, these “kits” are a dime a dozen on other websites. I like the “zip stitch” myself. More expensive per use but safer, easier to use and no numbing required LOL. IF you ARE going to use ANY of these kinds of devices/kits, take a firstaid class. Preferably a “stop the bleeding” class. Some even offer suture training.
From an EMT perspective you are much better off with a ‘Stop the Bleed’ kit, even a cheap one where the tourniquet will not survive more than one use. If you feel a need for one of these then also get a tourniquet so you can stop the bleeding to see what you are doing. Also consider a hemostatic dressing for torso wounds. Now that you can control bleeding you can transport to a higher level of care and NOT do field surgery
