Zipstitch first aid prep

https://zipstitch.us

Came across this item and thought some on the forum might like to add this to their first aid kits or other bags.

Thanks for the reminder. I cut my finger with garden shears recently and the folks at the urgent care used what was basically a tube of medical grade super glue since it wasnt bad enough for stitches.

I meant to buy some from Amazon for my first aid kit but forgot

You can use super glue on wounds, as long as the skin isn't under tension.

I had about a 2 1/2" long incision just below my knee from surgery to remove a bone spur that had penetrated the bursa underneath the patellar tendon. Can you say ouch????

Anyhow, when I asked about how long the stitches would stay in, the ortho laughed...just let the butterflies fall off. Incision was glued shut and then covered with butterflies.

I've used super glue on several deep cuts while my wife yelled at me that I need stitches.

She was wrong...worked great.

I keep a tube in my get home bag.

I've used that but not nearly as strong and durable as super glue.
