Of course, most needles were of a larger bore than today so they hurt more. 注射針を研ぐ 小学生の頃、私は本が大好きだったで、母の看護学校の教科書を全て読んだ。 当時の看護学生が習った技術の一つは『注射針の研ぎ方』。現在の使い捨て時代には考えられないことだけど、当時それは当たり前だった。注射器は再利用可能のガラス製で針は何度も使うものだった。 地元の医師の医院には先生の机の近くにはいつもアルコールの瓶の中には何本の注射器が漬けられていた。薬はそれに吸い込んで注入した。現在の注射針よりも大抵、直径が大きかったのでより痛かった。 ************** billyinjapan過去(2ケ月前以上)のブログ記事は彼のウエブサイトで観れます (billyinjapan blog posts older than 2 months […]
