Loop Abscess Drainage

ERCAST

I love pus

If you are an EM:RAP listener, this is the video I talked about in the November episode on abscess management and examine a new technique for draining a cutaneous abscess

I am a huge fan of this procedure and use it on most abscesses that I would have otherwise packed.

Why I like it: there is no packing to change, the incisions stay open because of the drain and the incisions themselves are much smaller than we historically use.
