We had this controversy the other day in the ED regarding how to better
use TAC for topical anesthesia for lac repair. I remebered vaguely reading
about this in a throw-away Journal that using a small gauze pad is better
than cotton because the cotton being hydrophylic will retain more of the
stuff unlike the gauze which will let it freely penetrate into the wound.
Any opinions or exp[erience?
By the way, why is everybody on this list so cyber-shy? Please put up your
thoughts ladies and gentlemen ,scientific or administrative so we can all
learn, share and have fun in the meantime.
On the "adult" EM lists there is lots of activity...
