Consideration for Simple Interrupted Suture:

It is important to handle all the instruments correctly.

When selecting suture material refer to your schools' booklet.

Swaged needles must be disposed of in a sharps container.

Other needles should be reused.

Needles are sharp and can cause injury.

Consider practicing suturing wearing gloves to reduce risk.

 

Procedure for Simple Interrupted Suture:

 

1. Remove suture material from suture material packaging

 

2. Grasp the needle with the needle holders approximately 1/3 of the way along its length(from the eye or swaged end). If the issue is tough it may help to hold the needle closer to the point.

3. Hope the rat tooth forceps in your non-domain hand and lift the far edge of the incision, near where the first suture will be placed.

4. Start suturing at the end of the incision nearest to your dominant hand i.e. right end if right-handed, and insert the needle on the far side of the incision.
