Ways on Using Crutches the Right Way

Most people do not know how to use a crutch properly, which results in worse pain and sores. Firstly, it should be basic knowledge that crutches are only to be used if the patient has adequate upper body strength and enough flexibility to maneuver. They are not to be used for injuries involving both legs.

There are also pads found just a few inches away from the armpit when the user is standing straight. The handles are on the same level of your hip, so the elbows are bent when using them.

Remember These Things When Checking Your Blood Glucose

If you are told that you can check your blood glucose independently, follow these:

A. Wash your hands and have a test strip inserted into your glucose meter.

B. Use the needle or lancing apparatus and prick the side of your fingertip to get a few drops of blood.

C. Have the tip of the strip touch the drops of blood and wait for the meter to show the result.

D. Check the result and compare with the normal levels.

You can also use your least used fingertip when pricking so you can avoid frequent soreness.

Techniques on How to Properly Use Walkers

Walkers are utilized for patients who have gone through hip replacements or other similar procedures that affect their stability and balance. A walker usually has four legs, which is why it provides more balance compared to canes and crutches. The walker must be positioned ahead of the one using it, ensuring that all the legs of the walkers are on even grounds. Using both hands, hold the top of the walker and slowly walk towards the middle of the walker. Leave a small distance from the front to ensure you can control your balance.

Top Tips for Carers When Giving Medications

Being in charge of providing medications round-the-clock can be a great challenge. When giving medications, check the label and dosage needed. Ensure that you are knowledgeable of the right route to give the drug as well. Also, check if the medications should be given with or in between meals. It is standard procedure to ask the patient their full name, check their wristband and check the name tag on their bed or door to ensure they are the right patient for the medication you prepared.

How to Choose the Right Cane for You

There are canes with different styles, heights, and shapes; therefore, choosing the right one that will suit your need is quite important. Using the wrong type can cause discomfort, dependence, or even accidents.

Single point canes are the most common but they do not provide the most stable support. On the contrary, tri-point or quad point canes can offer more stability for people who may need better support when ambulating. The top part of the cane should be in line with the user’s wrist while he is standing straight with his arms down by his side.
