It sounded like fun. UNMC’s Primary Care Progress and Family Medicine Interest Groups presented “Procedure Night: Casting Workshop” for students Oct. 8 in the Sorrell Center’s Clinical Skills laboratory.
What does that mean? Students learned to administer casts. They received casts themselves. Then they took a saw, and cut them off. And they had to sit there while a fellow student did the same to them.
Nervous? “Only with people watching me,” one said.
Important safety tip: “If the fingers turn white,” the instructor said, “stop.”
Turned out, it was fun. See for yourself.
