Idea exchange: Use plastic wrap for your oral X-rays
Easy come, easy go. This veterinary technician suggests using plastic wrap for oral X-rays.
Our hospital recently started taking digital oral radiographs, and getting the disposable plastic sleeve over the probe was extremely frustrating.
We want your brain!
… or maybe just your ideas. If you have a genius fix for freshening anal gland expressions or simply making life in veterinary medicine more efficient and pleasant, send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We'll pay $50 for every tip we publish.
One day, I decided to use some Glad Press'n Seal plastic wrap on the probe instead of the disposable sleeve. The plastic wrap goes on and off quickly and a little bit goes a long way. The other technicians and I have never looked back!
