Wedding Rings, not always the best idea. This man caught his wedding ring on something, I don’t know what, but it had enough force to skin his finger. That’s all muscle and exposed joint there! 

This is why you can’t wear any rings on military exercise. More than one finger has been lost this way!

Plus i’d like to highlight a very important point for A&E/ER. Any person with an upper limb injury must have ALL THEIR RINGS REMOVED at the point of initial triage!! So x-rays of hands with rings still in situ are BAD!! If needs be cut them off. Some patients don’t like it, but you have to tell them that they may lose their finger if you don’t take it off.
So there’s your thought for the day!
