@ me if you have questions internal medicine doc could answer

2017-07-24 22:05:56 UTC

Anyone have good treatment for burn blisters?

2017-07-24 22:06:31 UTC

Cool water for about 7 minutes.

2017-07-24 22:06:49 UTC

Put really loose wrapping around it.

2017-07-24 22:07:26 UTC

There is some medication you can take for them, but you can just put some aloe vera on it.

2017-07-24 22:08:15 UTC
2017-07-24 22:08:49 UTC

Don't pop it for starters. Blister treatment 101

2017-07-24 22:10:05 UTC

Yeah, popping it will open you to infection.

2017-07-24 22:10:08 UTC
2017-07-24 22:10:14 UTC

and yes don't pop it

2017-07-24 22:10:50 UTC

prevent any more friction moleskin is the best way to do that if its on your foot

2017-07-24 22:10:57 UTC

Also I thought mole skin was for preventative measures.

2017-07-24 22:11:04 UTC

Ohhh, that is what you had in mind.

2017-07-24 22:11:14 UTC

its more for after the fact but can be used for both

2017-07-24 22:11:51 UTC

you cut a hole the size of the blister in the moleskin and place it on preventing any more friction while allowing the blister to breath and heal

2017-07-24 22:45:11 UTC

@Louis Loire - NY that's something I never even considered for my bag. Mole skin.

2017-07-24 22:46:45 UTC

"Don't pop it"

2017-07-24 22:46:50 UTC

Immediately pops

2017-07-24 22:46:57 UTC

MAMA MIA

2017-07-24 22:58:47 UTC

Don't freak out about it, I have had em popped and have had other horrifying things open to infection. Just clean it about twice a day, especially when you come home. @StrawberryArmada

2017-07-24 23:08:06 UTC

Just soap and water?

2017-07-24 23:08:45 UTC

Yeah it's what I most of the time use.

2017-07-24 23:08:52 UTC

Neosporin too if you got it.

2017-07-24 23:09:12 UTC

just be a man and use alcohol or witch hazel

2017-07-24 23:09:41 UTC

don't worry about it but blisters on the back of your heel can get infected easily

2017-07-24 23:13:53 UTC

Or that.

2017-07-25 01:07:46 UTC

Once blister open the pocket is a site for infection. Usually want to debride extra skin, keep wound dry and clean

2017-07-25 01:08:46 UTC

No reason to use alcohol over less painful peroxide

2017-07-25 01:09:09 UTC

I'd just use that once, then soap and water after

2017-07-30 18:25:27 UTC

Any good remedy for cauliflower ear? Just ice?

2017-07-30 19:38:27 UTC

@Deleted User if I remember correctly you can drain it before it solidifies or whatever tf happens but Google how to before you take my word for it. Mileage may vary.

2017-07-30 20:30:22 UTC

Dean lister has a great video in how to drain it on YouTube bro... @Deleted User

2017-07-30 20:30:36 UTC

2017-07-30 21:55:20 UTC

Thanks guys

2017-08-10 23:20:35 UTC

Anyone here know anything about improvised antibiotics? Wanting some for my bug out/medical kit. I guess I could throw In some used ones the next time I get a script but I've heard fish tank antibotixs are similar to cypro and safe for human consumption

2017-08-11 01:46:35 UTC

@Deleted User yes actually fish antibiotics are the same as the ones they give to mammals. Just make sure you take a high enough dose for long enough. An infection coming back is bad news bears.

2017-08-14 21:46:39 UTC

@Deleted User also try your local farmers coop

2017-08-14 21:49:20 UTC

Who can put me in the medic lessons thread?

2017-08-14 21:49:51 UTC

I was a corpsman, does that count lol

2017-08-14 21:58:42 UTC

@Deleted User only the moderators can post in the lessons threads

2017-08-14 22:00:26 UTC

Can we get some CPR stuff posted in there? One of the better places to start. @Brandon Ironside- ND

2017-08-14 22:01:28 UTC

@Deleted User and @Louis Loire - NY ☝🏻

2017-08-14 22:07:05 UTC

CPR is very basic just YouTube red cross CPR if you dont break a rib your doing it wrong

2017-08-14 22:07:44 UTC

I will post how to do the head tilt chin lift for rescure breathing and BVM operation

2017-08-14 22:09:14 UTC

Idk if I'd post the rib breaking stuff lol. That's how you get people pushing to the spine. 2 inches, you might crack a rib or 2, just be weary of that. Depth is 1/3 for kiddos.

2017-08-14 22:12:01 UTC

@Deleted User πŸ‘πŸ»

2017-08-14 22:28:10 UTC

Reminder that everyone who is a medic and has something to share should. Just because youre not a mod at this stage does not mean we don't want to hear from you. That goes for every subject.

2017-08-14 22:39:27 UTC

Ive done CPR many time on real patients you will almost always break a rib

2017-08-14 22:40:11 UTC

Breaking a rib is minor compared to dying of an infarction

2017-08-14 22:41:46 UTC

So have I, work on an ambulance full time, hospital part. I've seen plenty of newbys to CPR try purposely to break ribs because someone told them they have to.

2017-08-14 22:42:13 UTC

Then they need to retake anatomy

2017-08-14 22:42:32 UTC

Amd should be fired

2017-08-14 22:51:43 UTC

Or, we could teach them the depth without saying "if you don't break ribs, you're not doing it right". It leads to pigeon religion like when people put a spoon in a seizing persons mouth.

2017-08-14 22:54:06 UTC

Literally everytime I see a code, someone is doing CPR atrociously wrong. That's the reason I brought it up. It is the most basic thing, and it's usually done wrong.

2017-08-14 23:08:29 UTC

@Deleted User do they still teach ABC?

2017-08-14 23:13:38 UTC

ABC for a regular code, CAB for trauma.

2017-08-14 23:20:14 UTC

Honestly though, if you are a bystander doing CPR, just open the airway with a head tilt (if no signs of spinal trauma), make sure someone calls 911, and do the chest compressions. If you get an assistant, you can worry about the rescue breaths, but building up blood pressure, and keeping it circulating is more important.

2017-08-14 23:36:39 UTC

@everyone Did anyone talk to the guys we used home remedies for pepper spray on? Did anything seem to work more than just water and air?

2017-08-14 23:37:37 UTC

@Deleted User milk, Maalox, and baby shampoo.

2017-08-14 23:37:55 UTC

MILK

2017-08-14 23:38:25 UTC

Data shows most important things to surviving arrest is quality compressions and how quickly someone can be cardioverted

2017-08-14 23:38:59 UTC

If someone goes down, start compressions and get AED asap.

2017-08-14 23:40:30 UTC

My only concern with the milk is if we are out in the heat, not sure someone would like stinky hot milk on their face.

2017-08-14 23:44:43 UTC

1:3 baby soap to water in a spray bottle. Scrub scrub scrub. Then 1:1 maalox to water in a spray bottle. Make sure to get both the soap mixture and maalox in the patient's eyes. Rise with water good. Repeat the process. Don't use milk. That's gross

2017-08-14 23:45:13 UTC

^ this is a Richard Spencer approved method, btw. Got to test it on him a couple times

2017-08-14 23:48:19 UTC

@ErikaI saw you using it, i was using just normal saline for an eye flush which didn't seem to help much.

2017-08-14 23:49:39 UTC

OC spray is oil based. Milk. Water. Saline. Etc. won't do anything to strip away the oil. Stripping away the oil is something that needs to happen before you can neutralize the capsaicin.

2017-08-14 23:57:01 UTC

Baked A. Freaked when I gave him my baby shampoo and water solution.

2017-08-14 23:59:04 UTC

Richard. McLaren. Freiberg. Ajax. And several others all said my method for neutralizing OC spray worked wonders. Richard also shouted out my efforts on the latest Shoah. I'm now known as the "guardian angel" lol

2017-08-14 23:59:30 UTC

@Havamal baked got a totally different level of pepper spray than what I treated.

2017-08-15 00:06:09 UTC

Was it even pepper spray or some type of acid?

2017-08-15 00:17:06 UTC

He received something at ultra high pressure. It's possible it was bear mace, or it could have been draino

2017-08-15 00:26:46 UTC

I talked to Baked. It was apparently something called class 4 bear mace. Nasty stuff.

2017-08-15 00:31:55 UTC

I though bear mace was weaker?

2017-08-15 00:32:22 UTC

Which sounds odd but I swear I've read it in multiple places

2017-08-15 02:57:21 UTC

It is weaker.

2017-08-15 02:58:15 UTC

But if you get anything shot into your eyes at high pressure at close range, eye damage is a distinct possibility.

2017-08-15 03:17:16 UTC

Makes sense.

2017-08-15 03:17:51 UTC

Especially considering bear mace often times has a shot distance of 30 feet

2017-08-15 14:26:45 UTC

@Deleted User, whatever @Erika used on me seemed pretty effective.

2017-08-15 14:29:02 UTC

Good deal, i had heard online that everything was kind of just placebo effect. I didn't really believe that because i would think removing the agent would help.

2017-08-15 14:37:18 UTC

@Louis Loire - NY @Erika did you guys have anything other than pepper spray? Had a cut with urine in it, that looked like it needed a couple stitches, and blunt trauma to the forearm proximal to the elbow.

2017-08-15 15:59:08 UTC

@Deleted User I had two hypoglycemia cases to work with. The majority of what I dealt with was pepper spray.

2017-08-15 15:59:55 UTC

@Deleted User was happy to be of service. I felt bad for the entire VIP crowd and you PSDs. Y'all got it rough and the corrupt police didn't do a damn thing.

2017-08-15 18:10:08 UTC

I had multiple facial lacerations acid attacks oven cleaner attacks and cracked skulls

2017-08-15 18:10:19 UTC

I treated about 15 people

2017-08-15 18:10:36 UTC
2017-08-15 18:11:04 UTC

I was also in the park till the very end i treated a few wounded at mc intryw as well

2017-08-15 18:15:32 UTC

Lessons learned? @Erika @Louis Loire - NY i honestly didn't expect as much pepper spray as was there. We also need to plan an actual triage point next time, I think. What helped with the oven cleaner? Were there any Neuro symptoms with the skull fracture?

2017-08-15 18:16:33 UTC

No just bleeding and stiches needed and rhe oven cleaner was highly toxic i had nothing and we were under fire from both cops and antifa it was a mad house

2017-08-15 18:17:03 UTC

And yes i need to mix that stuff that Erika made my pepper spray wipes did jack shit

2017-08-15 18:17:28 UTC

Told Nathan to not buy then again either he had the same ones

2017-08-15 18:22:58 UTC

Is the person that got sprayed with the oven cleaner good? Seems like the best thing would be just flush with water, or vinegar (since oven cleaner is basic).

2017-08-15 18:25:07 UTC

@Erika did you have a glucometer to check sugars, or were they just showing signs?
