Blister Method: This method was developed together with Dr. Nima Shojania, 2nd Year Medical Student, UBC. This method is recommended for doctors in emergency room settings or everyday practice. The solution used is 1% Xylocaine with Adrenaline (pre-packaged units of 0.3cc injected intradermally.) 

 

Straw and Knot Method:  This method was developed together with Dr. Susan Christie, 2nd Year Medical Student, UBC. This method is meant to service the general public.
