In this age of “high-tech” devices and innovation, it’s nice to find an inexpensive and low-tech approach to a common problem.
Such is the case with the removal of ticks attached to patients. Traditionally we use a hemostat to pull out an embedded tick and if one is not cautious, the tick may win this tug of war and the head and or mouth pieces left in the skin. If one uses the $5 Ticked Off spoon, you generally can remove the entire tick, painlessly and quickly.
Let me know if you have your own recommendations for accomplishing common medical problems using low cost and low tech solutions!
