A look inside the suture kit
Today, i’m taking a look inside the suture kit i received from a sponsor.
- Scissors In addition to these tools, the kit also includes a variety of sutures. It’s everything you need to get started on your suturing journey!
Learning how to suture with medical creations
Medical creations offers a great little kit for those looking to learn and practice suturing at home. In this video, we will be exploring the kit and learning how to use the tools.
The kit includes a heal driver, a 4-step, scissors, and a pack of 4-o-silk suture rings.
Types of sutures
When it comes to suturing, there are different techniques that can be used depending on the type of wound. Some of these techniques include simple interrupted sutures, mattress sutures, and subcuticular sutures. Each technique requires specific tools and steps to be completed correctly.
To begin, you will need to pull out the heal driver, 4-step, scissors, and 4-o-silk suture rings from the kit. Once you have gathered all of the necessary tools, you can start practicing your suturing skills.
Putting needles on needle drivers
When it comes to suturing, the fun part is actually putting the needle on the needle driver. It is important to make sure that the needle is at a 90 degree angle for the best results. However, some people may find it helpful to angle the needle slightly forward, as this can be easier to do when triangulating the spot.
Needle driver technique
When making an incision, it is important to know how to hold the needle driver correctly.
Thumb and ring finger
The first way is to put your thumb and ring finger in the needle driver, not your index or middle finger.
Palming the needle driver
The second way is to palm the needle driver. This gives you more freedom of movement because you can adjust your grip.
Using a needle driver and pickup for skin closure
When starting out, it is recommended to use a needle driver and pickup for skin closure. A pickup is specifically designed for skin closure and has teeth. To close an incision, the needle driver should be used with the finger as a guide.
Keeping the needle steady
When it comes to tattooing, keeping the needle steady is key to achieving the desired result. To ensure this, it’s important to get as close to the tip of the needle driver as possible. This makes the tip of the needle driver more steady and thus the needle more steady.
Resting points for stability
Having something to rest your hands, elbows, or wrists on can also help create a more steady and consistent tattoo. By doing so, you can twist your wrist so that the needle is going in at about 90 degrees to the skin. Once it’s in the desired depth, you can begin your work.
Closing incisions with a needle driver
When it comes to closing incisions, a needle driver is an effective tool. To use it, twist the wrist and watch the needle come out. Depending on the size of the incision, one or two bites may be necessary.
When using the two-bite method, first pull the needle out slightly. Then, grab the needle two-thirds of the way back from the tip of the needle driver. This is where the second bite will take place.
Palming the needle
When working with a needle, it is important to be mindful of the technique used. One such technique is palming, which involves slowly pulling the needle up and twisting it in order to be ready for the next bite. This method allows you to move the needle in one smooth motion, without having to pull it out after each bite. Once the needle is inserted into the second side, it can then be pulled out with ease.
The benefits of holding the needle with forceps
When performing medical procedures, it is important to hold the needle with forceps. This is because once the needle is inserted into the tissue, it must remain stable unless the patient is moving around. Additionally, holding the tissue with forceps will ensure that the needle does not move when released. By using forceps to hold the tissue in place, medical practitioners can be sure that the needle will stay in the same position, allowing for more accurate and successful procedures. This technique also helps to reduce the risk of injury to both the patient and medical personnel.
Tips for tying sutures
In this video, a few tips are given for tying sutures. The first tip is to stay in place and pick up the needle driver for the next bite. However, it is important not to do the next bite until the suture is tied. Another tip is for those with a long suture. Many students tend to pull it away from the area they are working on. It is important to remember to keep it close and in place.
Tips for proper suture procedure
It is important to follow the correct procedure when suturing to ensure a safe and sterile environment.
Avoid touching your face
When suturing, it is important to avoid touching your face or anyone else’s face. This will help keep the environment unsterile.
Pull suture down securely
When suturing, you should pull the suture down securely and place your four-step right in the area. This will help ensure that the suture is secure and does not move out of place.
When performing a suture technique, it is important to ensure that the suture is sticking straight up with a few centimeters out. This will help later on in the procedure. Once the suture is in place, it is important to be careful when handling the needle as it can be dangerous if attached to something. As long as the needle is not attached to anything, it typically should not cause any harm.
When suturing, it is important to avoid poking through the skin. To do this, one should grab a couple of palm links and use their left hand to hold the forceps. With the right hand, they should insert the needle driver between the tail and length of the suture. Typically, two wraps are done for the first suture. It is important to note that there should be a lot of length left.
Avoiding common mistakes when fishing
Fishing can be a great activity for people of all ages, but it’s important to know how to do it correctly. One common mistake is not making a big enough loop when tying the line. If the loop is too small, it can get caught in the jaws of the reel or get stuck around the back of it. To avoid this, it’s important to make a large loop and then another loop on top of that. This will ensure that the line is properly secured and won’t get tangled up.
Inserting a suture
To insert a suture, begin by grabbing the tip of the suture that is sticking straight up. Then, bring it across and pull it through. Lay it down and pull it tight, but not too tight to avoid strangulating the tissue. After this throw, the suture should be set in place so that it will not come out.
Setting up the needle driver
To set up the needle driver, begin by pulling it like this and snapping it like that. Then, lift it off the skin slightly so that it is not laying on the skin. Next, place the needle driver between the long end and the tail and create a loop. Make sure that the loop created is not too small or too big. Finally, pull it through to secure it in place.
In this video, we demonstrate a simple interrupted suture. This is accomplished by making a square knot and going back and forth. It is important to not pull the knot up in the air. This is just one of many different types of sutures that can be used.
In this video, i’m going to demonstrate how to do palm stitching. This is a technique that involves using your thumb and ring finger to hold the needle in place while you stitch. This technique can give you more rotation, which can be helpful when you are stitching. However, some attendings may not like this technique at first, so practice it at home before using it in a professional setting.
Taking a bite out of the tissue
To begin, i’m going to take just one bite of the tissue. I’m turning it up and it didn’t come out much, but i don’t have to hold the tissue with this thing. You might have to hold the tissue in place to keep the needle in the same spot. If i hold the tissue with this, and pull this across while steadying this side of the tissue, then the needle won’t move.
Going anywhere with just a tap
Sometimes it’s fun to be fancy when going anywhere. This maneuver is a long suture and typically you don’t use it. But if you want to pull it out of just a tap, here’s what you need to do.
Step 1: find the right spot
Two-thirds of the way back is where you want to grab it.
Step 2: pull it through
Once you find the spot, pull it through and this house what happens at your palm.
Step 3: enjoy the results
Now you can enjoy the results of your fancy maneuver!
The suture that comes in the kit is great for practicing. It is important to avoid touching the needle as much as possible, as it increases the risk of poking yourself. To do this, grab the suture with your finger and lift it up, then set the needle in a place that you think is suitable.
Figure eight suture stitch
The figure eight suture stitch is a commonly used technique for ligating a blood vessel. To perform this stitch, you should hold the needle and thread lightly, not clamping it all the way down. Then, turn the needle slightly if needed. You should then place the blood vessel in the middle of the stitch and make two stitches next to each other. This stitch is widely used in medical practices and can be quickly picked up with a little practice.
A 12 millimeter port is used for a laparoscope, which is referred to as a «figure eight» as it resembles the shape. To create the figure eight, the needle is driven in between two points and pulled up into the air. This process is demonstrated in the video.
Securing a wound with suture
When it comes to securing a wound with suture, you don’t need to use many throws. Most people recommend three or four silk and four or four vicryl. Generally, i use four and five extra for safety. This is to ensure that you don’t need to go back and forth with the suture, as it is a poly filament suture which will be discussed in future videos.
Learning the basics of suturing
Learning how to suture is an important skill for any surgeon. In this video, a surgeon explains the basics of suturing. The surgeon begins by explaining that you don’t need a lot of materials to begin suturing. He then moves on to discuss hand tying and different types of sutures. The surgeon concludes by encouraging viewers to check out his other videos on suturing and hand tying.
