A brief video on how to perform and incision and drainage of a cutaneous abscess.
Great instructional video…nice job Scott!
Interesting to see adding local along incision site not around the abcess
Thank you for not recommending sterile gloves or culture, and for correctly noting that packing is optional. Should express pus again after breaking up loculatuons, o/w exactly how it should be done. Nice job, thanks!
Thanks for the feedback everyone, and I’m glad you enjoyed the video. As viewers have been asking, the antiseptic used in this video was a standard chlorhexidine swab that is stocked by our hospital–similar to those that may be found in your LP, central line, or para/thora kits.
love your videos Scott. Strong work. Keep’em coming.
