Wearing gloves is important when performing any type of vascular ultrasound exams. Yesterday evening, I had some sort of blister on my left index finger and it was irritating me. I figured it was a bug bite or something along those lines, I put some corticoid cream which helped relieve the irritation and within an hour it had disappeared.
I found this interesting article that I wanted to share on why we should wear gloves ALL the time. Wearing gloves is a must when coming in any kind of contact with patients. As vascular sonographers we must be aware of this..http://www.dermbytes.com/another-reason-to-wear-gloves-herpes/
