    Medic!!!!!!!!!

    am I ok?

    I was working this morning and drilled a 1 mm hole into my thumb, other than the fact that I was bleeding ALL over all my work, no big deal. OK, so here is the problem, I was cleaning a piece to continue working on it and was holding it in my fingers and hit it with a jet of compressed air at 150 psi. I go the weirdest feeling in my thumb and looked down and it was blown up like a balloon..IT WAS A BALLOON !!!!
    I "burped" as much air as could get out of it out and went back to work......am I going to die when the bubble gets to my head or heart?
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    It ain't air that blew up you finger, it is blood. You have a hematomatoe. Oh and yes, your gonna die.

    You need to stop drilling so hard and pushing air out of holes.

    Yes, you were supposed to laugh. It is one of my high tech medical terms. I will come up with my own dictionary on of these days.

    Now you're talking bout affairs too?

    First you drilled, then blew a load of liquid after some hard drilling, then you blew...a lot of air out.

    "In contrast to HPI injuries with materials such as paint, grease, and other solvents, clean water and air injuries may result in good functional outcomes with simple monitoring and conservative management. HPI injuries with air have also been described as having a benign course."

    You should get a tetanus update if it has been five years, and I would rec a prophylactic antibiotic course. Infection can spread rather easily through the fascial planes/tendon sheaths of the hand.

    Worry if you get any redness, swelling, pain out of proportion, pain with flexing your finger, swollen finger.

    Thanks........lemme see. I work with little sharp stuff so I ALWAYS have a current tetanus shot.....It's all better now first I bled it clean then I cleaned it with compressed air, then simple green in the ultrasonic.......oh yeah...and dripped boric acid and 99% isoprop all over it....while brushing flux on my work

    If I took antibiotics every time I cut myself I would be on them CONSTANTLY....lol
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    The only way to fix this is to drill a hole clean through your thumb. That will allow it to drain.
