Body Piercing Removal is a colorful, informative resource for individuals working in areas where body piercings offer a challenge when providing care in critical situations. This colorful resource includes a DVD with a step-by-step guide to the removal of body piercing jewelry. There are many pictures and examples found throughout the book. The topics covered are a discussion of the various exams and procedures where body piercings may need to be removed. The tools of removal of body piercing jewelry and tips on how to maintain the patency of the piercing is also presented. The next nine chapters provides descriptions and examples of the variety of locations of body piercing jewelry from ears to eyebrows to chest and genitalia.
