Male patient, in his thirties decided it made sense to punch a hole through glass with both hands at the same time……..of course he was drunk at the time.
Lacerations everywhere on both upper extremities. He was ‘angry at his wife for asking him to take out the garbage’.
While suturing his MULTIPLE lacerations, he turns to ask me…….if I thought that he had ‘overreacted’.
Ummmmm……yeah….definitely. And when all that alcohol comes out of his system…he is gonna feel it.
