Fuck a 🦆 ....Fell on a rusty nail while gardening - right onto my wrist.. Em saved the day by getting me to the hospital quicksmart . Hurt like hell cos it went in a fair way. Can’t bend my little finger - you can see how it’s totally wonky along with the ring finger! Waiting on the surgeons advice. .... Update:how’d you be... my friend from port fairy who was here got me onto her friend who is an occupational therapist specialising in hand injuries and talked me thru what it could be. Surgeon booked first thing Monday. 🙏🏻 nb why in earth wouldn’t they give me the tetanus shot on the same arm as the injury - i can’t

Followed by a tetanus jab, I’m now home 🏠 and wrapped up completely in bubble wrap, what a day 🤪🤪🤪🤪 #accidentprone#itonlyhappenstome#clumsy#walkingdisaster#tetanus#friday
These are cases of Equine Tetanus. Tetanus is caused by a bacteria called Clostridium tetanii that is found in soil or droppings. It enters a horse’s body through wounds (specifically dirty puncture wounds) or can be ingested by eating contaminated soil, infecting the intestines. It releases a toxin that produces the typical tetanus symptoms.
SYMPTOMS: 1) muscular stiffness or spasms which causes the horse to become stiff and causes them to be unable to eat or drink
2) The third eyelid (typically seen in the inner corner of the eye) protrudes over the eye, mainly if the horse is startled.
3) convulsions, collapse, respiratory failure and death
TREATMENT: Unfortunately, an affected horse cannot be saved from tetanus and will pass away from the disease
PREVENTION: Though not a treatable disease, tetanus is a highly preventable disease with a typical vaccine. Along with this, keeping a good care and cleaning any wounds can prevent any chance of tetanus infecting through the wound. Consult with your vet about giving your horse the vaccine. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Lacerations Repairs 🔪
45-year-old 🚹 presents with "a cut" on his R forearm from falling onto a ceramic decor... I can't even make up some of the stories that I've heard. Regardless of how bad some of the lacerations that I've seen, my job as an ER doc is to do the best that I can to re-approximate the wound and provide the best outcome. *
Contraindications to wound closure:
body laceration >12hrs old or face/scalp >24hrs. So remember, DONT WAIT!
Before sutures, we like to numb up the area with local anesthetics such as lidocaine. Then we decide on the size of the suture depending on the location of the cut. You may hear us say, "three-oh, four-oh, five-oh" which simply means the thickness 💪 of the sutures.
Aftercare: You may be given a tetanus vaccine if you're not up-to-date within the last 5 years. Always avoid soaking in water 💦 and most sutures will require you to return to Urgent Care or the ER for suture removal.
Double tap if you've received stitches! Share your story below! 😵
Are you though?🤔 .
As someone who is anti vaccine yesterday opened my eyes. Not only had we not been reminded to have our immunizations checked by our training provider it hadn't crossed my mind at all. .
We live and learn.
I don't like vaccines and I do believe they cause harm especially in young children but in adults with a fully established immune system I believe our bodies are better at handling them.
This is my opinion please do your research. .
I implore all practioner and trainers to fully endorse Hep B and C shots and also Tetanus too. With the job we do it's too risky not to. Our safety is paramount not just the patient. I was made aware that one institute covers this topic and how to deal with such accidents because they do happen. What about the rest? Who else covers this ? And if not, why not? . . .
