Medical Challenge - Answer
The answer to yesterday's Medical Challenge is:
#3 Donating blood. This patient donates platelets on a regular basis and this time a different technician did the venipuncture. The bruised and lacerated arm is the result of blood leaking into the tissue. The treatment is first ice followed by warm compresses which allow reabsorbtion of the blood. She is doing just fine and will continue her generous donations.
