Resilient Living: Emergency Medicine - Suture Practice w/ The Urban-Aboriginal
Published 3 weeks ago
In this video I briefly demo how to suture (stitch) a wound using a pig’s foot. Pig skin is the closest type of dermis to human skin, it is a little tougher, is a very good substitute to practice some medical skills on.
Emergency suturing should only be attempted after adequate practice "dirt-time" has been reached, and there is no other emergency medical help or facilities nearby or for sometime. There are suture kits available to purchase to practice giving stitches available on Amazon and other medical supply sites. Please see my previous video on suture kits here: https://fsavenger.com/video/71HMO7AMHNX8/a-little-tidbit-resilient-living-suture-kits-amp-emergency-medicine-w-the-urban-aboriginal
There are two types of sutures Absorbable and Non-Absorbable...
Stainless steel wires (used in orthopedic surgery)
Be sure at least one other person in your family/group is trained in giving basic suture techniques...that way there will be another person who can administer this kind of aid on those hard-to-reach areas.
I am NOT a healthcare professional, so it is VERY important that you seek out the instruction and aid of a licensed medical professional...DO NOT attempt this when you have safe professional alternatives available to you.
