dear friends presenting you an eye opener. The baby came to us on day 5 of life. Paents applied the glove on baby's hand. The glove had string on the end to fix the glove on wrist. Unknowingly the string might have been tightened a bit more & it led to tremendous pressure on radial-ulnar arteries so much enough to generate ischemia of the hand. The baby had the glove on for 24 hrs. The parents recognised it only when baby started crying the next day and they opened the glove just in attempt to remove clothes and bath the baby..! The hand was red inflammed and in pre-gangrenous changes...! the string application had made a tight band like strip on wrist...! this is an eye opener for every one not to use string application gloves or foot socks. Accidently they may lead to ischemic injuries.
