stoic said:get out your lido jelly and apply generously. then grab a handful of 4x4's and start debriding. i've seen and found that you sometiems you really have to get aggressive with it but if you use enough pain meds and lido the pt is comfortable enough and you end up getting a lot more of the debris out.
Pose said:How much lido jelly would be needed (on your average patient model) to cause toxicity?
roja said:We use it all the time... I love it.. its not just for peds.. shoulders, fractures, difficult i&d's, etc.
