Suturing consists of using a needle and thread to close a wound. Although this sounds simple, in modern medicine a variety of stitching techniques are used depending on the location and complexity of the wound. While any good suture practice kit will provide the tools needed to learn suturing techniques, the skills are best learned by video or live-demonstration.

5 Ways to Take the Sting Out of Self-Injections
A nurse learns in nursing school how to give a subcutaneous (sub-q) injection. Giving a subcutaneous injection is a nursing skill that nurses must master to perform their jobs accurately. Nurses must have an exceptional level of expertise in human anatomy and injection techniques in order to administer these injections with the least amount of pain. Once nurses get the hang of giving a subcutaneous injection, they will likely be one of the requested nurses from patients receiving this injection.
How to Suture a Wound? Suturing is a fancy way of saying stitches. It’s when you use a sterilized needle and thread to sew together a severe wound so that tissue can start healing properly as well as to reduce the chances of infection.
The three main types of injections include: Subcutaneous (into the fat layer between the skin and muscle) Intramuscular (deep into a muscle) Intravenous (through a vein).
The simulated skin iv injection pad includes skin layer, fat layer and muscle layer. Two open green veins can be used for intravenous injection exercises. Two closed red veins can be injected and produce blood return.
Good quality silicone suture pads can be used 100 times. With good practice, you should be able to suture wounds that will not cause arterial bleeding or body cavity, neck or face injuries. For those severe patients, it is best to rely on bandaging the wound and applying pressure until professional medical help is found.
