073/365 – Staple Removal!

Today, i went to my morning lab and learned how to remove staples from a patient. We also learned how to remove sutures and drains.

Surgical staples are specialized staples used in surgery in place of sutures to close skin wounds, connect or remove parts of the bowels or lungs.

The tool to remove the staples is pretty cool, but if you use the tool inappropriately, you can definitely force the staple into the person and that wouldnt be a good idea.
