Sterilized Dressing for Office Use.

Sterilized Dressing for Office Use. Every physician does at least a little minor surgery, and has in his office a quantity of dressings for this purpose. No matter how careful he may be to keep these dressings clean and antiseptic, they will at times become contaminated by handling and by contact with the outside of the container. This is inevitable if the doctor dresses his cases without the assistance of a trained nurse—as most of us do. Some doctors treat their dressings in a way the description of which would not look well in a medical journal. Surgical dressings should be kept in a box or jar which can be closed air-tight. A cheap container, which I use, is a half-gallon candy jar with a glass top fastened by a metal ring, which screws down upon it; a rubber ring between cover and jar makes an air-tight joint.
