5 ways to get prepared for Suturing & Wound Management

 

A clash of heads or studs to the leg, suturing is one of the most common skills required for pitch side medical staff.

But acquiring the knowledge and skills alone isn’t enough.

It can be a daunting feeling taking responsibility for your first wound, but you should be able to manage with confidence even under pressure.

How can you ensure you are fully prepared for wound management and suturing?

  • Specialist Training

Suturing is a skill that should be taught by a medical professional with experience in the field. Ensure any training you want to attend covers the content required for your role. Do your research and, if necessary, speak with the provider to confirm the content is right for you!

  • Regular Practice

You can’t put your skills to the test without regular practice. Although nothing prepares you better than experience, it may sound cliched, but practice definitely makes perfect. Oranges and chamois leather sponges are good substitutes for the real thing. Take the time to practice suturing, stapling and gluing different types of wounds.

  • Suitable Kit

Make sure your kit is up to scratch. Get to know your equipment and use kit that is similar or the same to the kit you train and practice with and are comfortable using.

It is time consuming and often expensive trying to locate and compile individual suturing items into your own kit.  With Lubas Medical you can purchase ready made bags that include all the equipment used on our course.

  • Communication within your team

Communication is key throughout your pitchside medical team. Only members of the team with suturing qualifications, insurance and experience should manage serious wounds.

Never work outside your scope of practice and always work within your team, organization or employer’s guidelines. It should be made clear to everyone within the team who is responsible for all suturing and assessment of more serious wounds.

  • Consider the worst-case scenario

Always prepare for the worst-case scenario. There is always a possibility you could be dealing with a major wound/bleed. Know your limits and ensure you have an action plan in place for an emergency.

We believe that following a training course you should be able to contact us for advice and ongoing support when required. We offer suture courses that cover a range of closure techniques taught by highly qualified medical professionals.

Trying to source high quality suture equipment from various providers is a time consuming and daunting task.

Our ‘Wound Management & Suture kit’ provides the equipment you have trained with and will feel comfortable with using in a real-life situation.

 

The kit includes;

·        3 x Suture removal kit

·        2 x Staple gun + remover

·        2 x Small/medium/large latex medical gloves
