    Go to u-tube and search suture technique lots of good ones come up. Great way to practice is to start with heavy sewing thread to learn the tying technique. You can also use a straight needle for skin suturing many older doctors used straight needles for this. Ethicon a Johnson and Johnson company has a great book on suturing. May be able to find it online.

    RN for 30years, experience in er and or. Retired military, 28years. Last 10 of military on a forward surgical team, deployed to Afghanistan a few times with SF units. Many certifications and combat medic badge. My advice is to practice, practice and read. Learn to suture wounds, there are ways to practice and not use up your supplies.

    If we're still posting credentials on this thread.............EMT/I, HazMat Tech, USAR Rescue Specialist, FF2 and a bunch of others that I forget right now. Anyway, I've been in the helping people business for about 15 years now and while I haven't seen it all, some of what I have seen I'd rather not see again. If I can be of any assistance as it relates to any of my training let me know!

    I just want to pass on that there is a great book issued out to special operations medics called the special operations medical handbook. It has everything from signs and symptoms to setting up a primitve base camp. It even has sections for minor surgury and recomended gear for deployments. I recomend this to all.
    Available from the govt book store for $59.00 at http://bookstore.gpo.gov/actions/Get...08-070-00810-6

    I like the super glue concept and I agree that it works well. Another alternative is the glue that ladies use on their fake nails, equally as strong on skin BUT is also has an antifungal agent so as not to cause nails to rot.
