quick tip: easy fluorescein staining

28 Apr

via a recent post from the Procedural Pause:pp20fluoro20clinical20pearl

use a saline ‘bullet’ (dropper), drip a little saline on the fluorescein strip, then draw it back up.

 

handy for peds, or for squirmy adults, too

 

 

I’ve also seen the strip dropped in the back of a 10 cc syringe, or a saline flush used similarly as with the dropper above (see this ALiEM post for more).

There you go. Add it to the toolbox.
