Need some ways to avoid those nasty-icky-clinical skills?
Here are some tips and tricks passed down from my CRNA-friend-in-training on how to avoid gagging in the field of nursing!!
1. Vicks under the nose is a classic.
2. Put Vicks on the outside of a face mask and then layer with another face mask.
3. Haven’t got any Vicks? Do the same thing as number 2, but substitute Vicks for toothpaste.
4. Haven’t got Vicks or toothpaste? Do the same thing as number 2, but substitute Vicks for a couple of alcohol sheets.
So there you go!!
Enjoy not gagging yourself into an oblivion!
