Circulation Checks: Upper Extremity - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Please watch the entire video before checking the blood flow in your arm. This video will teach you how to check the blood flow in your arm. Good blood flow is important for recovery after the surgical procedure on your arm. Step 1: Look at your hands and fingers on the arm recovering from surgical procedure. Compare your arms. Do you see any differences? Your hands and fingers on the surgical side should feel warm, be normal in color, and have little to no swelling. These signs mean you have good blood flow in your arm If your hand looks red or blue, feels cool, or has a lot of swelling, your arm may have poor blood flow. Step 2: Does your hand feel numb or tingly? A feeling of numbness and tingling can also be a sign of poor blood flow. Or you may feel numbness from a type of anesthesia called a nerve block until it wears off. If you are not sure if you had a nerve block, ask your surgeon. Step 3: Wiggle your fingers. Wiggling your fingers may improve blood flow to your hand. Repeat steps one through three every four hours, or as directed by your surgeon. Another way to check for good blood flow is by doing a capillary refill test. Capillaries are small blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood to your fingers. The capillary refill test allows you to see how well blood is flowing through these blood vessels to your fingers on the surgical side. Step 1: Gently pinch the tip of your finger directly over the fingernail with your other hand. Step 2: Squeeze until your fingernail turns white, then let go. Your fingernail should turn pink again within two to three seconds. This sign means that you have good blood flow in your arm and hand. Repeat steps one and two every four hours, or as directed by your surgeon. Contact your surgeon if you notice: your hand looks red or blue, your hand looks very swollen your hand feels cold, numb or tingly, unless you had a nerve block during surgery making your arm feel numb until it wears off, or your fingernail takes more than two to three seconds to return to a pink color when doing the capillary refill test.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."
