Blood draw fromButterfly needle with clean tube attachedat Clininc ,wanted to know hiv dies once dried inside needle ? HIV would die within minutes ?

Blood draw fromButterfly needle with clean tube attachedat Clininc ,wanted to know hiv dies once dried inside needle ? HIV would die within minutes ?

No risk, no worry: It is very unlikely the clinic reuses butterfly needles to draw blood. HIV probably can survive many hours in blood inside a needle. But because needles are not reused, this doesn't matter. As you probably know, medical care in Pakistan often is very sophisticated. But even in developing countries, HIV is rarely if ever caught by having blood drawn or by other needles or injections. No worries! ...Read more

Dr.We tried 2 times self insemintion, no sucess both times.Sperm dies hitting air ? And sperms drips out after inserting..

Sperm doesn't: Die instantly when hitting air, but does as it dries out. Sperm dripping out after inserting obviously doesn't help achieve a pregnancy. Only those sperm that progress from the vagina into the uterus and tubes can do that. Don't know why you're having a problem, may be how you're handling or inserting the sperm, your positioning, or even a tubal blockage. Check w/your gyn or whoever's advising you. ...Read more

How are reusable and disposable gauze roll bandages different?

How are reusable and disposable gauze roll bandages different?

Often the Same: It is more on how they are intended to be used. Bandages for covering an open wound should never be reused because of the risk of infection. Use them once when they are clean then throw them away. Elastic type bandages e.g. splinting a sprained ankle can be reused because they do not need to be sterile- just clean. ...Read more

Small cut @ salon from nail file. Cleaned it w/ soap and water. Nail tech put some sort of glue on it. Not sure about sanitation conditions. Hep risk?

Unlikely: It is possible to transmit infections through a cut but unlikely to come from a nail file unless it had another persons blood on it. You did the best thing which was to wash with soap and water. Anything is possible but it would be highly unlikely for you to have contracted an infection from this event. ...Read more

Are vacuum assisted breast core biopsy guns always attached to a machine? the one I had was just a gun, not cord attached. Not vacuum assisted then?

Are vacuum assisted breast core biopsy guns always attached to a machine? the one I had was just a gun, not cord attached. Not vacuum assisted then?

Yes: Yes, typically the vacuum assisted biopsy guns are attached to the computer/machine because a program runs it and the vacuum runs through it.Sometimes a handheld stereotactic gun is used instead due to the nature of the lesion being biopsied-much better for dense tissue or firm lesions.The clumsiness of all the tubing with the vacuum ones can be a problem too although better for calcifications. ...Read more

Any advice? What suturing technique is used in placing a jackson-pratt drain?

Any advice? What suturing technique is used in placing a jackson-pratt drain?

Pretty simple: I just use a 2-0 or 3-0 stitch, which i tie down to the patient , then i wrap the suture around the catheter and tie it down . I just want a little crimp in the drain catheter, so it won't slip out but will allow drainage. I prefer braided (silk) suture for this, though some prefer nylon. I hope this answers your question. Interesting. Good luck. ...Read more
