When you get blood on your fingers when holding your first site, do you wipe the blood off with an alcohol pad before holding the 2nd site?
I have gloves on when I am removing my needles so if I get blood on one, I remove the glove and put on another one.
I am a vampire, so I lick them clean… …jokingly, hehehe
Seriously, I hold 2 at a time…they both never bleed and if they do all I do is replace the gauze while using Sanitizer in between…
Like Gus, I hold 2 at a time, usally some of the nurses will alcowipe as much blood off as possible.
I also only take a few minutes if that to stop bleeding.
I AM aware of how powerful my fistula could be.
I was told when they created it under general anastetic, I sprayed the ceiling!
